Trump Wants To Hold A Military Parade In DC On July 4

Posted September 20, 2017

Macron tried to convince him to change his mind during Trump's July visit to Paris.

Trump celebrated the 100th anniversary of US entry into World War I on Bastille Day in Paris in July, watching thousands of French and American troops march down the Champs-Élysées during the two-hour parade, which included armored personnel carriers, tanks, missile launchers and dozens of military planes and helicopters. And I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France.

Trump also noted that the USA spent over $700 billion on military spending this year.

"To a large extent because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July Fourth in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue", Trump said.

For example, if somebody knew about the Russian operation and helped it succeed, they could also be criminally liable", he said. They suggested, he now believes he may be able to obtain enough evidence to charge specific foreign entities with a crime.

Despite spending more on their military than anyone else in the world, the United States has rarely indulged in high-profile public military parades, instead favoring civilian parades with limited military participation. "We're actually looking into it".

Washington already holds quite a few parades, including some with military participation that are held on Memorial Day and July 4.

Defense Department officials reportedly denied a request from Trump's transition team to include heavy military vehicles in his inaugural parade from the Capitol to the White House. "That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue".

"Being a great president has to do with a lot of things, but one of them is being a great cheerleader for the country", Trump said in the January interview.

And will this clash of elite level titans live up to its enormous critical expectation and become this decade's Corrales vs. For Golovkin , the fight is the culmination of a long battle to establish himself as the top middleweight in the world.

"We're going to have to try and top it", Trump went on. "Having a really great parade to show our military strength..."

It is unclear whether or not Trump's July 4 military parade would be an annual event.

A major military parade hasn't taken place in Washington since 1991, when, according to The New York Times, 80 pieces of military hardware, including amphibious assault vehicles and "at least one M1 tank", rumbled through the streets of the nation's capital in celebration of America's Gulf War victory.
