Man takes swipe at 'Squad' during 9/11 ceremony

Relatives of those that died in the September 11, 2001 attacks gathered at the site of the former World Trade Center in lower Manhattan for the 18th annual commemoration ceremony on Wednesday (September 11), joined by local and national politicians, police, firefighters and other first responders.

As in all the years since the attacks, the names of the nearly 3,000 victims were read by family members as others gathered along the edge of the reflecting pools to place flowers and remember their loved ones.

This year a speaker at the ceremony assailed Ilhan Omar, a Muslim member of Congress who has often been the target of U.S. President Donald Trump and right-wing media outlets.

The speaker's remarks were an unusual deviation into partisan politics and religious division at the somber annual ceremony held at the site where Islamist al Qaeda hijackers flew planes into the World Trade Center in 2001, killing nearly 3,000 people.

Called up to read some of the names of the victims, Nicholas Haros, whose mother, Frances Haros, was killed in the attack, falsely suggested Omar was confused about the nature of the attack.

Echoing Trump, Haros also questioned the Minnesota congresswoman's patriotism.
