WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump on Monday signed the bill that will make sure the Septemper 11th Victim Compensation Fund never runs out of money.
Trump was joined by 9/11 first responders and their families in the Rose Garden.
The bill extends the fund through 2092.
Trump spoke about his time at the World Trade Center site following the attacks, and the emotional testimony from first responders, including NYPD Detective Lou Alvarez.
He said the nation has an obligation to care for the first responders and their families.
"You searched for survivors, you went back day after day and night after night to save lives and return the fallen to their families to rebuild and recover and to show the entire world that nothing will ever break America's spirit," Trump said.
The bill passed the Senate 97-2, after Democratic senators agreed to allow votes on amendments sponsored by two Republican senators.
