Trump Wants to Hold a Military Parade for the Fourth of July

And days before he took the oath of office, Trump told The Washington Post that "we're going to show the people as we build up our military we're going to display our military".

Speaking to the press before a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the United Nations, Trump called the Bastille Day event "one of the greatest parades " he had ever seen. "That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue".

Macron chuckled as Trump recalled the "beautiful thing" he witnessed in Paris, saying one of his "early calls" when he returned to the White House was for creating a US-version.

But it seems like the Donald Glover's Atlanta may have the Award in their favor in its very first season. This year Westworld tied up with the Saturday Night Live for getting the most nominations in the event.

Trump attended Bastille Day on July 14 to celebrate the anniversary of the French revolution. "It was military might, and I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France". So we're actually thinking about Fourth of July, Pennsylvania Avenue having a really great parade to show our military strength. "I don't know, we're gonna have to try to top it". During the Cold War, the practice was avoided as it was feared that it would look like the US was mimicking the Soviet Union.

Washington already holds quite a few parades, including some with military participation that are held on Memorial Day and July 4. Indeed, historically the USA has scorned the large military parades in nations like North Korea as signs of a childish nation obsessed with its own sense of military might.

The day is a celebration of the country, in some ways similar to American Independence Day, but it begins with the world's oldest and largest military parade.

Trump said he was so impressed by the military parade in France that he would like to recreate it in Washington.
