Trump plans military parade for Independence Day

Trump plans military parade for Independence Day”

To a city that already offers many, President Donald Trump wants to add one that showcases US military might. But now he's the commander in chief and talking about holding such a show of military might on the Fourth of July.

But their relationship has since grown close, highlighted by Trump's visit to Paris in July where they held talks and watched a military parade to mark France's annual Bastille Day holiday and the 100th anniversary of the US entry into World War One. "[This] is good news for you 'cause we're friends", said Trump to the French president.

Still very much inspired by France's elaborate Bastille Day military parade this summer, President Trump on Monday said he wants the United States to put on its own version for the Fourth of July.

On Monday, Trump told Macron that what he witnessed on the tree-lined Champs-Elysées on July 14 "was one of the greatest parades [he had] have ever seen", eliciting a little chuckle from the newly elected French president. "It was a tremendous thing for France, and for the spirit of France". "It was a tremendous thing for France and for the people of France". People don't know what great warriors they are in France. I don't know, we're going to have to try to top it, but we had a lot of planes going over. It was really so well done.

"So we're actually thinking about 4th of July, Pennsylvania Avenue, having a really great parade to show our military strength", Trump added. The parade usually includes military vehicles and flyovers, and Trump was visibly happy during the event. A major concern was the weight of the vehicles causing structural damage to Washington's streets. And he told The Washington Post in January that he hoped that during his tenure, USA military might would be on display.

"That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue".

This would not be the first military parade the US has held, but there has not been one in D.C.in decades - not since 1991. But we had a lot of planes going over, and we had a lot of military might and it was really a lovely thing to see.

Pentagon officials expressed reluctance about the plan, and Trump inauguration officials ultimately scrapped the plan.
