Trump Sends Warning Message to Potential Terrorists During 9/11 Remarks: ‘No Enemy on Earth Can Match’ US

President Donald Trump is putting down his foot against any potential future terrorists, declaring that they could never match the strength of the United States military.

Remembering those whose lives were lost 18 years ago on Sept. 11, 2001, the president delivered a speech during the 9/11 observance ceremony at the Pentagon on Wednesday.

“Eighteen years ago, the terrorists struck this citadel of power and American strength. But the enemy soon learned that they could not weaken the spirit of our people. In times of distress, the heart of the American patriot only grows stronger and more determined.”

After recognizing the thousands of military members who’ve laid down their lives or are currently serving overseas “to protect our home, our flag, and our American way of life,” Trump offered a blunt message to anyone who tends to harm the U.S.

“We do not seek conflict, but if anyone dares to strike our land, we will respond with the full measure of American power and the iron will of the American spirit,” Trump said. “And that spirit is unbreakable.”

Trump went on to note the peace talks with Afghanistan’s Taliban leaders that he called off over the weekend after the group claimed to be behind the killing of a U.S. military soldier and 11 others. He then called the peace talks “dead” on Monday.

“They thought they would use this attack to show strength,” he said. “But actually, what they showed is unrelenting weakness.”

Trump added, “The last four days, we have hit our enemy harder than they have ever been hit before, and that will continue.”

“And if, for any reason, they come back to our country, we will go wherever they are and use power the likes of which the United States has never used before. And I’m not even talking about nuclear power.  They will have never seen anything like what will happen to them. No enemy on Earth can match the overwhelming strength, skill, and might of the American Armed Forces.”

Watch the ceremony below:

As IJR reported, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle unified as they offered heartfelt remarks on the 18th anniversary since the deadliest terrorist attack.

“September 11th didn’t take our freedom—it only strengthened what we know to be true: America is the greatest country in the world, and it’s worth fighting for,” Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) tweeted.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) wrote, “Today, we remember the 3,000 Americans we lost on September 11, 2001, and we honor the bravery of the emergency workers who rushed into danger in order to save lives.”

Generally Confused, I’ll never be part.of your world and not likely ever your buddy. My down votes for you are always accompanied by facts. Your responses, not so much, but I give you credit for playing. You DO at least try to back up your arguments….Unlike some of the other gutless and witless players here on IJR.

Dang! I had to agree with Bernie on something.
I’ll never forget watching that second plane hit the second tower. I was flabbergasted and sickened.
God bless America and let us not fall into the leftist complacency that blames the (mostly) good people of
the United States for all the evils of this Earth.

Every member of the IJR family knows WHY YOU always receive DOWN votes – except you, of course. Maybe it would be best to wake up and smell the coffee.

Never forget: Tbe World Trade Center had been unsuccessfully attacked in 1993 by the same people that conspired and planned 9/11. Bill Clinton’s response: NADA! Throughout his presidency, Osama Bin Laden was #1 on the terrorist watch list. No response from Clinton. When he had a chance in 1998 to take Bin Laden out, Clinton was more concerned that an attack would look like a distraction from his Monica Lewinski affair. This was admitted to by his Secretary of State, Madeline Albreight (not so bright). Also, never forget that this attack was planned entirely on Clinton’s watch and the warning… Read more »
