Trump, Clinton to visit ground zero

Donald Trump is planning to mark the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks by attending the official commemoration at ground zero, a source tells the Associated Press.

A person familiar with the decision, but not authorized to discuss it until it’s announced publicly, told the AP on Saturday that Trump is expected to attend the annual commemoration.

Hillary Clinton is also attending.

Both Trump, a native New Yorker, and Clinton, who was a New York senator at the time of the attacks, have agreed to refrain from campaigning Sunday, continuing the tradition of setting aside partisan politics on the somber anniversary.
