Trump Tweet: “We will never forget”


Both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have doubled down on their commitment to fight against terror.

Monday, on the anniversary of the 1983 Marine barracks truck bombing attack in Beirut which killed 241 U.S. service members, Vice-President Pence paid tribute to the slain military members, including 220 Marines, in a ceremony and parade at the Marine Barracks in Washington, D.C.

“The Beirut barracks bombing was the opening salvo in a war that we have waged ever since — the global war on terror. It’s a conflict that has taken American troops across the wider world — from Lebanon to Libya, from Nigeria to Afghanistan, from Somalia to Iraq, and many other battlefields in between,” Pence said at the ceremony.

He promised that, under President Trump’s leadership, “We will drive the cancer of terrorism from the face of the earth.”

President Trump posted a comment on Twitter Monday evening in response to Pence’s comments, replying to a separate comment Vice President Pence has posted on Twitter with photos from the ceremony.

Pence had stated, “[email protected] Trump has put Iran on notice—we will not sit idly by while the ayatollahs in Tehran plot more attacks like the bombing in Beirut.”

Trump responded, “We will never forget the 241 American service members killed by Hizballah in Beirut. They died in service to our nation.”
