Donald and Melania Trump attend the 9/11 Memorial Service for Flight 93

Trump tweeted about the trip from Washington in a tweet saying the ceremony honored victims from Flight 93.

Meanwhile, in the capital, Vice President Mike Pence delivered a speech at the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial.

On Tuesday, Trump marked the anniversary of the attacks by tweeting, "17 years since September 11th!"

The Tower of Voices was dedicated in a special ceremony over the weekend.

New York City is taking note of the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on Tuesday, with a gathering at the World Trace Center memorial plaza.

ABC's "The View" co-host and comedian Joy Behar belittled first lady Melania Trump on CNN's "Van Jones Show" recently, claiming that before Melania Trump met her now-husband President Donald Trump, she was "in Slovenia doing nothing".

Trump was on his way to a memorial service in Shanksville.

Tens of thousands of people inhaled fumes in the days after the attack, and the number of patients coming forward with tumours has increased in recent years, according to the fund.

Novak Djokovic after winning US Open 2018
Sloane Stephens, who won last year's US Open and lost in the quarterfinals last week, dropped from No. 3 to No. 9. Federer holds the record of 20, followed by Nadal with 17, and Djokovic, who equaled Pete Sampras at 14.

Sinodinos says it's better to commemorate the day there than to sit around "being depressed".

Trump's somber address paid tribute to "American defiance", and asserted that the country is not defined by the attacks. The keynote speaker will be Captain Greg Amira, a retired US Army veteran who was in the World Trade Center when in 2001.

When he arrived in Pennsylvania with the first lady, Trump flashed a celebratory smile and pumped his fists as he greeted supporters on the tarmac in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

The passengers and crew were killed when the plane crashed into a field as they were attempting to fight off the hijackers who had commandeered the aircraft.

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. Months later, there was a botched pipe bombing in a subway passageway near Times Square.

"At this memorial on this sacred earth in the field beyond this wall and in the skies above our heads, we remember the moment when America fought back", Trump said, praising the Americans aboard the flight-"changed the course of history" by resisting the terrorists.

Other speakers included Ryan Zinke, secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior; Gov. Tom Wolf; former Gov. Mark Schweiker; and Gordon Felt, president of the Families of Flight 93 organization.
