Donald Trump pumped his fists as he arrived in Pennsylvania en route to Shanksville where he will commemorate those lost on 9/11. Trump arrived at John Murtha Johnstown-Cambria County Airport in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, at around 9 a.m. on September 11, 2018. He was greeted by supporters along the airport’s tarmac.

One person who witnessed the action tweeted that the fist pump is being taken out of context, “I saw it live. He was putting his hands up with double fists to the crowd that was there to greet him…you know like to say America Strong but of course, the media and all of you spend so much time suffering from Trump deranged syndrome.” Others have not been so kind:

Trump began his day tweeting about a segment from the Fox Business Network, ““We have found nothing to show collusion between President Trump & Russia, absolutely zero, but every day we get more documentation showing collusion between the FBI & DOJ, the Hillary campaign, foreign spies & Russians, incredible.” @SaraCarterDC @LouDobbs.” On another Fox News segment, Trump tweeted, “New Strzok-Page texts reveal “Media Leak Strategy.” @FoxNews So terrible, and NOTHING is being done at DOJ or FBI – but the world is watching, and they get it completely.” The president then paid tribute to his lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, “Rudy Giuliani did a GREAT job as Mayor of NYC during the period of September 11th. His leadership, bravery and skill must never be forgotten. Rudy is a TRUE WARRIOR!”

Shanksville became known across the world on 9/11 when United 93 crashed 1.2 miles north of the town after passengers had tried to wrestle control of the plane back from terrorist hijackers. All on board were killed. It’s thought the hijackers were trying to crash the plane into either the White House or the U.S. Capitol building. Those who were lost that day are celebrated by the 93 foot high Tall of Voices, decorated with 40 wind chimes. Trump is the third sitting U.S. president to visit Shanksville on 9/11. He will be joined at the site by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf.
