Former President Donald Trump has put out a video ad geared toward remembering the bravery and sacrifice of Americans during the September 11, 2001 terrorists attacks at the World Trade Center, which resulted in the deaths of 3,000 people.
The ad is just a bit over two-minutes long and has been titled, “You Will Never be Forgotten.” It was published by the former president’s PAC, Save America on Friday.
The video starts off with the then-President giving an address at a 9/11 ceremony held in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
“We honor their sacrifice by pledging to never flinch in the face of evil and to do whatever it takes to keep Americans safe,” the former president says in the video, adding, “We grieve together for every mother and father, sister and brother, son and daughter, who was stolen from us at the twin towers, at the Pentagon, and here in this Pennsylvania field.”
Another scene flashes across the screen, showing some of the destruction that occurred as a result of the terror attack.
“In the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, courageous Americans raced into smoke, fire, and debris in lower Manhattan, the Pentagon, and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania,” Trump went on to say. “The whole world witnessed the might and the resilience of our nation and the extraordinary men and women of the New York Fire Department, and the New York Police Department. When the World Trade Center came down, I saw something that no place on Earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than New York — and the cleanup started the next day and it was the most horrific cleanup … I was down there and I’ve never seen anything like it.”
The ad then shows a clip of Trump near the site of the World Trade Center right after the attack.
“I’ve seen two huge, 110-story buildings that are reduced to rubble,” he said recalling the horror. “I have hundreds of men inside working right now and we’re bringing down another 125.”
The ad closes with a clip of Trump speaking as president at a 9/11 ceremony.
“We come here with the knowledge that we cannot reverse the evil of that dark and wretched day,” he proclaimed. “But we offer you all that we have — our unwavering loyalty, our undying devotion, and our eternal pledge that you loved ones will never, ever be forgotten.”
