This is so shameful…..
Not on the part of the families of course, but on the part of Joe Biden—America’s usurper-in-chief.
I think we all remember a time when any American President would be welcomed to the site of any 9/11 memorial—even Obama, so for 9/11 families to voice their wishes that Biden stay away is really just a huge dishonor for Biden.
People clearly don’t like him, and I am still sitting here wondering where all those votes came from.
Here’s what the families and loved ones who had their lives forever changed by 9/11 expressed to Biden:

NBC News reports:
Nearly 1,800 Americans directly affected by the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks are opposing President Joe Biden’s participation in any memorial events this year unless he upholds his pledge to declassify U.S. government evidence that they believe may show a link between Saudi Arabian leaders and the attacks.
The victims’ family members, first responders and survivors will release a statement Friday calling on Biden to skip 20th-anniversary events in New York and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon unless he releases the documents, which they believe implicate Saudi officials in supporting the acts of terrorism.
The group says that as a candidate Biden pledged to be more transparent and release as much information as possible but that his administration has since then ignored their letters and requests.

Biden wrote. “The 9/11 Families are right to seek full truth and accountability. I will direct the AG to personally examine all cases where the invocation of privilege is recommended, to err on the side of disclosure in cases where events occurred two decades or longer ago.” https://t.co/fYC9Yu3jYc

It was recently reported by Politico that Joe Biden is planning on attending the 9/11 memorial in New York:
President Joe Biden is expected to attend the 9/11 memorial in New York City to mark the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, four sources with knowledge of his plans told POLITICO.
For the 10th anniversary of the attacks in 2011, then-President Barack Obama visited New York. When Biden was vice president in the Obama administration, he traveled to the memorial sites during different years. In 2012, he marked the anniversary in Shanksville with a speech.
Biden’s likely visit to lower Manhattan will be “particularly significant with our withdrawal from Afghanistan,” said a White House official, referencing the full U.S. military pullback from that lengthy war. At the ceremony, Biden is expected to strike a tone that is “in large measure a sort of arc of the last two decades,” the person said.
