* Pool report No. 8, Sept. 11, 2018 – POTUS*
POTUS spoke in hushed tones to the crowd at the remembrance ceremony. He
used the phrase ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ and hailed the bravery of the
40 passengers and crew. Rough quotes are below:
‘A piece of America’s heart is buried on these grounds. But in its place
has grown a new resolve to live our lives with the same grace and courage
as the heroes of Flight 93,’ Trump said.
‘This field is now a monument to American defiance.’ He said it delivered
‘a message to the world: America will never, ever, submit to tyranny,’
‘America will never forget what your loved ones did for all of us,’ Trump
said, after recounting the heroism of “the forty.”’
Trump also thanked those who have served in the military since Sept. 11th,
and hailed them for ‘facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism.’
‘America’s future is not written by our enemies. America’s future is
written by our heroes,’ Trump said.
The president lauded the brave passengers and crew. ‘They attacked the
enemy. They fought until the very end. And they stopped the forces of
terror and defeated this wicked, horrible, evil plan.’
‘Flight 93 crashed yards from where we stand, just 20 minutes flying time
from the United States Capitol,’ Trump said.
‘The passengers and crew members came together, took a vote, and they
decided to act. At that moment they took their fate and America’s fate
back into their own hands. In the last 20 minutes, many placed their final
calls home. Whispering those eternal words, I love you. Some said the
lord’s prayer. And then they bravely charged the cockpit,’ Trump said.
POTUS and FLOTUS are about to tour the viewing area of where Flight 93
Will send a few more quotes afterward.
