Commemorating the 17th anniversary of the attacks that struck the World Trade Center in NY and the Pentagon in Washington, Trump said the nation shared the grief of the family members whose loved ones were lost that day.

Relatives of victims read out the names of the dead, and moments of silence were observed at 08:46 and 09:03 to mark the times when passenger jets struck the two skyscrapers.

Standing within the self-discipline the attach the last of the 11th of September planes crashed, President Donald Trump praised the "band of heroic patriots" who helped bring down the jetliner and saved the lives of endless others within the nation's capital.

He said the 40 passengers and crew on United Flight 93 embodied heroism when they fought back against the hijackers.

He was joined in remembrances by first lady Melania Trump, Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf and former governor Mark Schweiker, who was the state's lieutenant governor on 9/11.

Trump noted that almost 7,000 service members have died since September 11 and - using terminology avoided by his predecessors - said they were "facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism".
