Later Trump gave a speech at the Pentagon
Saying, “Each family here today represents a son or daughter, a sister or brother, a mother or father who was taken from you on that terrible, terrible day,” he said. “But no force on Earth can ever take away your memories, diminish your love, or break your will to endure and carry on and go forward. Though we can never erase your pain or bring back those you lost, we can honor their sacrifice by pledging our resolve to do whatever we must to keep our people safe.”
“The terrorists who attacked us thought they could incite fear and weaken our spirit, but America cannot be intimidated, and those who try will soon join the long list of vanquished enemies who dared to test our mettle,” he said.’
“America does not bend,” Trump said. “We do not waver and we will never, ever yield. So here at this memorial, with hearts both sad and determined, we honor every hero who keeps us safe and free, and we pledge to work together, to fight together, and to overcome together every enemy and obstacle that’s ever in our path.”
