WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Co-Chair Bob Paduchik released the following statement on the 16th anniversary of 9/11:
"Today we remember the souls who were taken from us too soon," said Chairwoman McDaniel. "While we continue to grieve and will never forget, we are reminded that a new force was born from the immeasurable pain our country suffered that day – one of unity, selfless service, and love for our neighbors."
"We also look ahead to the fight that remains against radical Islamic terrorism. We give thanks to our military which, under the steadfast leadership of our commander in chief, is continuing this battle with renewed resolve. President Trump has made it clear to the world that extremism will not win."
"We must never forget that radical Islamic terrorism has taken tens of thousands of innocent lives," said Co-Chair Paduchik. "Please pray for all people that fight the war on terror."
