Trump Encourages Nation to 'Never Forget' 9/11 and 'Always Forget' Covid-19

WASHINGTON, D.C. — 19 years ago today, Al Qaeda operatives boarded four planes and hijacked them, turning them into high-speed missiles. Three of the four planes struck their targets and the fourth was brought down by the passengers rather than be used to kill more Americans. All told, nearly 3,000 people died when the planes struck the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon. In the aftermath, a rallying cry was born and is repeated by millions of Americans each year on this day.

“Never Forget.”

The phrase, of course, means to encourage Americans to keep the loss of those 3,000 people in their hearts and minds when remembering the attack. It’s been used by countless politicians and pundits since that day, from all sides of the political spectrum. President Donald Trump used the phrase in a hashtag this morning on Twitter.

But as much as the president would like Americans to “never forget” 9/11, particularly today, he told reporters in the Oval Office this morning that he “desperately wants and needs” them to forget about COVID-19.

1. But you know why, right?

911 destroyed BUILDINGS.

Covid only destroys lives.

2. The virus is something he can't control...

And he can't find an opportunity to make it work in his favor.
