WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump is preparing to preside over his first 9/11 commemoration in office, a solemn and nonpartisan occasion in which he will be joined by first lady Melania Trump.
The Trumps plan to observe a moment of silence at the White House on Monday in remembrance of the nearly 3,000 people who were killed when hijackers flew commercial airplanes into New York's World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The morning remembrance is scheduled for about the time the first plane struck one of the Twin Towers on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.
Trump and his wife also are to pay their respects at a Pentagon ceremony led by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The observances come as Trump grapples with the death and destruction caused by two hurricanes in three weeks.
Vice President Mike Pence is to represent the administration at an observance at the 9/11 memorial in Shanksville.

“...Trump grapples with the death and destruction caused by two hurricanes....”
I watched Trump and the First Lady on TV. She looked like she was getting ready to cry. We have come a far way from having a FLOTUS who said “ All this fuss for a damn flag”.

...Article starts out fine, but quickly devolves into another excuse for Trump-trashing...
CBS can’t help it. That’s also the way the shriveled up old senile codger attacked him and Steve Bannon last night in the interview they aired. .
First plane hit at 08:46 AM
Article Intentionally makes it sound like President Trump is running around saying yeah got things to do. Let’s get this show on the road
“We have come a far way from having a FLOTUS who said All this fuss for a damn flag.”....
Like millions of my brothers in arms, many who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, I served my country to preserve that “damn flag” and NO ONE should ever be allowed to make such a statement again. Words cannot express the distain I have for that bitch, she needs to be run out of this country, never to return.
Don’t forget Kep and the Cleveland Browns. Where are the owners of these teams? They have the power to tell these prima donnas to either stand tall or stay in the damn locker room. Where is the NFL commissioner? Screw the NFL. I’m watching college football now.
President Live Now!
Communist Bullsh-t Station. Also, very anti-American. Who cares what it spouts? Only liberals, Democrats (and a few Republicans) and the left.
I don’t recall either President Bush or President Obama making 911 memorials such a significant event. If President Trump hadn’t done so, the significance of that day might have disappeared from history.
Thank you for your service.
Now that President Trump spoke and mentioned “The living, breathing soul of America”, you can bet they really go nuts on him....
“I watched Trump and the First Lady on TV. She looked like she was getting ready to cry. We have come a far way from having a FLOTUS who said All this fuss for a damn flag.”
I find immigrants to America to be the most appreciative of America. Just look at who makes up the majority of antifa: native grown yutes.
