Sixteen years ago today the US came under attack by radical Islam.
2,997 people were murdered in a series of coordinated attacks by the Islamic group Al-Qaeda.
The Twin Towers at the World Trade Center were destroyed in the attacks.
Today One World Trade Center stands in its place.
And today America has a populist president who puts Americans first.
On Monday September 11, 2017, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump honored those lost on 9-11 with a moment of silence at the White house.
This was powerful.
God bless this great country and its leader and First Lady.
