9/11 Group Angry Trump Ran Campaign Ads Yesterday

The Hill reports:

9/11 Day, the nonprofit that established the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks as a federally recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance, criticized President Trump on Friday for not suspending his campaign for the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

“Sadly, our organization and members of the 9/11 community learned today that President Donald Trump’s campaign organization chose to violate this solemn tradition. Rather than suspending political activities for the day, the President’s campaign ran as many as 1,000 campaign ads throughout the day and throughout the nation, according to media reports,” the organization said in a statement.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign pulled its television ads off the air for the day. 9/11 Day in August called on both candidates to suspend their campaigns.
