First lady Melania Trump chose a stylish and patriotic outfit to attend ceremonies marking the 17th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks.
The first lady and President Donald Trump on Tuesday boarded Air Force One on Tuesday to travel to Shanksville, Pennsylvania, for a memorial ceremony in honor of the 40 passengers and crew members who were aboard a fateful flight that day 17 years ago.
