Trump considering holding DC military parade on July 4th

"So we are thinking of holding a really big parade on July 4, on Pennsylvania Boulevard, to show our military strength", Trump added.

The Pentagon might have vetoed Donald Trump's interest in parading US military vehicles across the streets of Washington during his inauguration festivities. "And we're going to show the people as we build up our military, we're going to display our military".

Paris is trying to set up an global contact group on Syria to revive stalled peace talks in Geneva, but the United States has adopted a staunchly anti-Iran stance since President Donald Trump took power, complicating peace talks between major powers.

He later told reporters the event might occur as soon as the next Independence Day, adding it might take another year to plan.

"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.

He said that the U.S.is spending $700 billion more than ever before on its military, likely alluding to a $700 billion defense policy bill in the Senate, and quipped that it's a boon for France "because we're friends".

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

'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. The lengthy parade seemed to thrill the president, who has long held a fascination with military force. "And I think we really, we're looking forward to doing that".
