Trump recognized the heroes who planned and voted to take action against the terrorist hijackers.

On Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump stood at the Flight 93 National Memorial not far from the plane's impact site. #NeverForget.' In a separate tweet, he added: '17 years since September 11th!'

"And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down", Trump said at the time. REUTERS/Kevin LamarqueU.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump tour the Flight 93 National Memorial during the 17th annual September 11 observance at the memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, U.S., September 11, 2018.

The 40 passengers and crew members on board attempted to regain control of the jet after speaking to relatives on the phone and learning the hijacking was part of a larger plot targeting the World Trade Center in NY.

Commemorations also took place in NY and Washington to mark the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by al Qaeda, in which almost 3,000 people were killed.

He said the "brave patriots turned the tide on our nation's enemies and joined the immortal ranks of American heroes".

Before he spoke, Trump listened as the names of the 40 victims were read aloud, followed by the tolling of bells.

Parents, children, siblings and grandchildren were among them. "Did Trump invite them back to see him off?"

'What I can say today is that I don't live my life in complacency, ' Debra Epps said a year ago as she remembered her brother, Christopher Epps.

The president praised those who "took control of their destiny and changed the course of history".

Those remarks were met with cheers and applause from the crowd.

After calling their loved ones to say final farewells, many passengers aboard Flight 93 are believed to have charged the hijackers and prevented the plane from striking the USA capital. On that day in 2001, Congress was in full session.

"We will remember their faces, their voices, their stories, their courage, and their love", he said.

"They were not passive", Felt said. "Never miss a chance to let those held dearest know your [love] for them". Thomas Langer said his brother, Timmy, "drank himself to death" over the grief of losing his wife, Vanessa, and their unborn child on September 11.

The importance of remembrance was not stressed by Felt alone. He also tweeted quotes from Fox News about a series of his familiar grievances, including the Russian Federation probe and the U.S. Department of Justice.

Trump tweeted about the trip from Washington in a tweet saying the ceremony honored victims from Flight 93.

He paid tribute to victims at the new memorial as several services took place around the country to mark 17 years since the terror attacks.

'His leadership, bravery and skill must never be forgotten.

He also recognized the 5.5 million Americans that he said had enlisted in the armed services since the attacks.

Introduced by Schweiker, Gov. Tom Wolf detailed the heroism of those on this day. But through the bravery and sacrifice of passengers and crew, he said, "the Forty" spared Washington from a devastating strike.

Then he brought the message back to "the 40". They fought until the very end.
