Trump Marks 9/11 with Threat to ‘Savage Killers’

Trump Marks 9/11 with Threat to ‘Savage Killers’

WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump on Monday paid tribute to the 2,977 people killed on September 11, 2001, warning that "savage killers" who threaten the United States will find no haven on earth.
On the 16th anniversary of the attacks, Trump's first as president, he observed a moment of silence at a White House before laying a wreath and delivering remarks at the Pentagon, where 184 people died.
His tone unbending and solemn, Trump championed America's resilience and "common bonds," but issued a stern warning to "enemies" that "America cannot be intimidated."
"Those who try will soon join the long list of vanquished enemies who dared to test our mettle," he said, as a drone of jet engines carried echoes of a day half a generation ago that many Americans have vowed not to forget.
In Trump's native New York, at Ground Zero, there was a minute's silence at 8:46 am (1246 GMT), the moment the first of two hijacked airliners struck the World Trade Center.
In all, four planes were hijacked by Al-Qaeda militants who used them to topple the trade center's twin towers and hit the Pentagon.
The fourth plane, Flight 93, crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where Vice President Mike Pence traveled for the day. (AFP)
