Fox News reporter Peter Doocy criticized the Biden administration for explaining President Joe Biden’s absence from the 9/11 ceremony in New York City. Doocy, reporting from Hanoi, Vietnam, where President Biden recently visited, revealed that White House staff compared the situation to Pearl Harbor, suggesting that after 22 years, the attack site was no longer a priority for the president. Doocy questioned why Biden was in Vietnam instead of attending the 9/11 commemorations.
In Biden’s absence, Vice President Kamala Harris attended the New York ceremony, standing alongside Mayor Eric Adams, who has been critical of the White House’s handling of the southern border crisis. President Biden became the first sitting leader since the 9/11 attacks to skip the ceremony.
During his time in office, former President Donald Trump not only attended the 9/11 ceremonies but also signed legislation providing compensation for 9/11 victims until 2092. This ensured ongoing support for those suffering from health issues from exposure to toxic dust and chemicals during the attacks. Trump also allocated $2 million in funding for the National September 11 Memorial & Memorial Plaza in 2020.
Trump’s involvement during 9/11 included sending workers to assist in rescue efforts, notably saving five trapped firefighters.
Conclusion: Peter Doocy’s report highlights the controversy surrounding President Biden’s decision to skip the 9/11 ceremony in favor of his overseas visit to Vietnam. The White House’s analogy comparing it to the passage of time since Pearl Harbor has raised questions and criticism. While Vice President Kamala Harris represented the administration in New York, it marks a departure from the precedent set by former President Trump, who attended and provided substantial support for 9/11 victims. The decision has drawn attention to differing approaches to honoring the memory of the tragic events of 9/11 and supporting those affected by them.
