Trump, a Republican and native New Yorker, took the occasion of last year's anniversary to issue a stern warning to extremists that "America can not be intimidated".

Before leaving Washington, Trump marked the anniversary with tweets, including praise for Rudy Giuliani, his personal attorney who was New York's mayor on 9/11.

Those remarks were met with cheers and applause from the crowd.
