USA marks 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the president's focus will be on "remembering the lives that were lost" and honoring those who "put their lives on the line to help" respond to the tragedy.

Almost 3,000 people died on 9/11 when other airplanes were flown into New York's World Trade Centre and the Pentagon in an attack planned by al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

The last moments of the flight and the dialogues between the passengers, crew and hijackers in the process of struggle in the cockpit, had been released in 2006 in a courtroom the american on the occasion of the trial of the Frenchman Zacharias Moussaoui.

Trump honed in on those actions as he spoke, calling the passengers and crew, a "band of courageous patriots" who "turned the tide on our nation's enemies and joined the immortal ranks of American heroes".

President Donald Trump paid sober tribute to victims of crashed Flight 93 in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

If not political speeches, some victims' relatives made appeals to patriotism and support for the military and first responders as they read names.

"Trump is not very good at speaking the language of communal values", said Jennifer R. Mercieca, an associate professor with the department of communication at Texas A&M University who has studied the president's rhetorical style.

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

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

Two young men who rescued a couple moments before a train slammed into their auto have received a bravery award named for a flight attendant on one of the planes flown into the World Trade Center.

The tower is the final phase of the 2,200-acre Flight 93 National Memorial.

"Today, we also think of the more than 200,000 service members now serving overseas and we think of every citizen who protects our nation at home, including our state, local and federal law enforcement", the president said. "They did not let the events unfold for them".
