    Donald Trump is planning to mark the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks by attending the official commemoration at ground zero.

    A person familiar with the decision, but not authorized to discuss it until it's announced publicly, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Trump is expected to attend the annual commemoration at the World Trade Center site.

    His Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, is also attending. It is not clear whether the two will cross paths, and neither candidate is expected to make public remarks.

    Trump, a native New Yorker, and Clinton, who was senator from New York 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.
