Watch: Trump Delivers 9/11 Address At The Pentagon On Its 18th Anniversary

On Wednesday, President Trump remembered those nearly 3,000 Americans who were killed in the September 11th attacks, 18 years ago.

He described the day as one “seared into our soul” and was “full of shock.”

The president also applauded the unmatched bravery of the first responders, who rushed towards World Trade Center buildings.

“This is your anniversary of personal and permanent loss. It’s the day that has replayed in your memory a thousand times over,” the president told those in attendance, specifically referencing those who lost loved ones on that day. “The anguish of knowing your family member had boarded one of these flights, or was working in the World Trade Center, or serving right here at the Pentagon. Your life changed forever.”

“To each of you, the First Lady and I are united with you in grief,” the president added.

“We come here in the knowledge that we cannot erase the pain or reverse the evil of that dark and wretched day, but we offer you all that we have,” Trump continued, “our unwavering loyalty, our undying devotion and our eternal pledge that your loved ones will never, ever be forgotten.”
