President praises '40 heroes' of Flight 93 on 9/11 observance in Shanksville

People gather as US President Donald Trump speaks on September 11, 2018, at the site of a new memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania where Flight 93 crashed during the September 11 attacks, as somber ceremonies take place at Ground Zero in NY and at the Pentagon.

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.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday lauded the men and women of United Flight 93 for saving countless lives when they struggled with hijackers on September 11, 2001 and called the field where the plane went down a monument to "American defiance".

Trump and his wife, Melania, traveled to the Flight 93 National Memorial from Washington and paused for a moment of reflection while overlooking the field where the plane crashed.

Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence is reportedly at the Pentagon, where a plane crashed directly into the building.

A stark reminder came not long after last year's anniversary: A truck mowed down people, killing eight, on a bike path within a few blocks of the World Trade Center on Halloween. But each year at ground zero, victims' relatives infuse the ceremony with personal messages of remembrance, concern and inspiration.

America's First Couple will visit the newly inaugurated Tower of Voices at the Flight 93 National Memorial - a 93-foot-tall (nearly 30-meter) monument with 40 wind chimes to represent the 40 passengers and crew killed on the flight.

Trump has said when talking about Muslims that "thousands of people were cheering" in Jersey City, New Jersey, situated across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan, as the towers collapsed.
