Trump At 9/11 Anniversary Held At Pennsylvania Memorial

The deadliest foreign attack on US soil in which 2,996 people died was marked with ceremonies.  The President Donald Trump and the First Lady Melania visited a memorial in Pennsylvania to mark the event.  Trump praised the airline passengers who fought the attackers inside the cockpit hoping to stop them.  Trump was at the newly erected Tower of Voices Memorial which measures 93ft (28cm) tall.  Services were also commemorated at the New York City’s 9/11 Memorial plaza on the World Trade Centre site and was attended by Governor Andrew Cuomo, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, Mayor Bill de Blasio, former Mayors Michael Bloomberg and Rudy Giulliani. Vice-President Mike Pence’s speech impressed on his audience “they must learn the lessons of 9/11 and remain ever vigilant,” and this took place at the Pentagon, Washington.

The aftermath of inhaling the dust and fumes from the toxic rubble has been a rise in the cases of cancer. The 9/11 Victims’ Compensation Fund has seen $4billion (£3.1bn) paid to fund medical expenses for survivors. The World Trade Center Health Program reports that, nearly 10,000 have had some form of cancer.
