Former President Donald Trump on Monday issued a statement honoring the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, vowing that the nation would never let their deaths go unremembered.

The Al-Qaeda-masterminded plot saw hijackers seize control of four planes, two of which they then steered into the World Trade Center, while a third hit the Pentagon. A fourth plane went down in Pennsylvania due to a passenger revolt before reaching its target. It remains the deadliest terror attack in human history.

"No one who lived through the horror of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks can ever forget the agony and the anguish of that terrible day," Trump said in a video posted to Truth Social. "The images of dark plumes of smoke billowing over lower Manhattan, the Pentagon, and a field of Pennsylvania, such a beautiful field, are seared into our minds forever. We will never forget."

"Today, on this solemn anniversary of those monstrous attacks, we remember the 2,977 precious souls who were savagely taken from us on that morning 22 years ago," he continued. "We will say a prayer for each of the beautiful families they left behind whose pain is beyond comprehension."

"We honor the firefighters, the great New York P.D. ... and the port authority officers, the Virginia, D.C., and Pentagon police, and the military servicemembers, and other first responders – actually all over the country they acted with supreme heroism," he declared. "They went to the site of the most heinous crime, they would leave other states far away and go to the World Trade Center site, the Pentagon they'd go to Pennsylvania."

"God bless the memory of all those who perished in the 9/11 attacks we will never ever forget," Trump concluded.
