Stuttgart, Germany – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on President Trump’s tweet using 9/11 footage for a political attack:

“The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence.  The President shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack.

“As we visit our troops in Stuttgart to thank them and be briefed by them, we honor our first responsibility as leaders to protect and defend the American people.  It is wrong for the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to fan the flames to make anyone less safe.”
