Former President Obama commemorates 16th anniversary of 9/11 with a moving statement

Donald Trump marked his first 9/11 anniversary as president Monday, celebrating the flag and the values it stands for while warning would-be terrorists of the nation's resolve. "I hope as we commemorate the 16th anniversary of 9-11, everyone will stop for a moment and remember all the people who gave their lives that day". "And those who try will soon join the long list of vanquished enemies who dared to test our mettle".

The president and first lady Melania Trump plan to observe a moment of silence at the White House on Monday morning. A minute later, a bell tolled as they stood near a group of White House staffers and invited guests who bowed their heads as a Marine trumpeter played taps. Then, relatives began reading out the names of the almost 3,000 people killed when terrorist-piloted planes hit the trade center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field, hurling America into a new consciousness of the threat of global terrorism.

"We're ensuring they never again have a safe haven to launch attacks against our country", Trump said in a brief, somber speech near the site where a hijacked jetliner slammed into the iconic five-sided Defense Department headquarters on September 11, 2001. He vowed that such an attack would never be repeated.

Mattis said during the ceremony, "Our nation rallied together as one for while we had never asked for this fight, we are steadfastly comitted to seeing it through as president Trump has made it clear".

He added that when America is united "no force on earth can break us apart".

But his words were more about resistance than pity.

"I'm a preacher, and I got a little fired up", she said. Later, he said "the living, breathing soul of America wept with grief for every life taken" on 9/11.

Trump has spoken publicly about the 9/11 attacks frequently, starting long before the NY businessman became a 2016 presidential candidate.

Trump, a New York City native, was in Manhattan when the Twin Towers fell 16 years ago.

He has also criticized President George W. Bush's handling of the attacks and has accused the former president of failing in his duty to keep Americans safe. "And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down". There is no evidence in news archives of mass celebrations there by Muslims.
