On Tuesday morning, September 11, 2018, the 48-year-old stepped into Shanksville, in Pennsylvania, to attend the service in honor of those who perished on United Airlines Flight 93.

The First Lady couldn't help but take to her own Twitter account to post a photo of herself and Donald Trump posing for the camera with the caption 'we remember.'

9/11 is a day of mourning and reflection for Americans around the world and, across America, there have been several events in which people paid their respects to the victims of the 2001 terrorist attack. Follow us on our Twitter account @amomama_usa to learn more.

DRESSED FOR THE OCCASION

Even though the tragedy took place 17 years ago, every year the world remembers how the World Trade Center towers collapsed, killing thousands of people in the process.

Black was the main color worn at the Memorial Service, but the First Lady chose a somber navy dress with white stitching for the ceremony, which she matched with a pair of high heels.

The custom-made coat was reportedly created by Hervé Pierre, Melania's stylist, who has also designed several other looks for the 48-year-old, such as the white gown that she wore at the inaugural ball.

A FLOTUS TRADEMARK

The coat dress has become one of the most recognizable pieces worn by the First Lady, who usually pairs them with shoes by Christian Louboutins or Manolo Blahniks.

Although Melania kept her private an respectful pose throughout the day, the same can't be said about the President; Trump has lit the internet on fire yet again due to his obnoxious behavior.

DOUBLE FIST PUMP CONTROVERSY

Upon landing in Pennsylvania, the 72-year-old was pictured doing a double fist pump, as if he was celebrating something while addressing the hundreds of people waiting for the service to start.

People online didn't appreciate the President's lack of respect or, as Amy Siskind, a Twitter user, put it, the lack of an 'empathy gene,' as well as decency.
