Flight 93 was the fourth plane.

The memorial is not the only event of remembrance planned for Tuesday. "America will never, ever submit to tyranny".

Having Trump as president feels like having an abusive stepdad who ruins every function with his ineptitude, except 1000 times worse because his ineptitude is steering one of the most powerful nations in the world.

Donald Trump has remembered the "band of fearless patriots" aboard a September 11 flight that crashed in Pennsylvania, praising passengers and crew members who resisted hijackers and sent a message that the nation would "never, ever submit to tyranny".

Donald Trump has been branded insensitive after greeting supporters with a double fist-pump ahead of a 9/11 memorial. Thousands slept with loved ones for the last time.

The president and his wife Melania sat solemnly as the names of all 40 passengers and crew members killed were read out close to where the Boeing 757 slammed into the ground in Shanksville, Pa.

The field was where one of the jetliners fell to the ground after 40 passengers and crew members realised hijackers had taken control and tried to storm the cockpit.

When the plane crashed in Shanksville, all were killed. It is believed that the hijackers were hoping to use the plane to attack the Capitol, home to the US House of Representatives and the Senate.

"A band of fearless patriots turned the tide on our nation's enemies and joined the immortal rank of American heroes", he said. He cited the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in his remarks, saying: "Nearly 7,000 service members have died facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism". Vice-President Mike Pence represented the administration there on Tuesday.

While Obama has in the past blasted Trump and his policies , this was the first speech in which he used his successor's name. He added that when there is a vacuum in democracy, "other voices fill the void".

They "joined the immortal ranks of American heroes", he said. "America's future is written by our heroes", he said.

"At that moment they took their fate and America's fate back into their own hands".

Giuliani is now Trump's personal lawyer and a vocal advocate for the president. Often, he imbues his attempts at comfort with self-praise or non-sequiturs. There is no evidence in news archives of mass celebrations there by Muslims.

"17 years ago, Americans went to bed with no thought the next day their world would change forever", tweeted a nearby NYPD precinct.
