President Trump said Monday he’s considering having a military parade in Washington, D.C. on July 4 after seeing a similar parade on a recent trip to France.
In remarks alongside French President Emmanuel Macron, Trump marveled at the “military might” on display during France’s annual Bastille Day celebrations and said seeing the parade inspired him to do something similar in the US.
“Because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4th in Washington down Pennsylvania [Avenue],” Trump said. “We’re thinking…of having a really great parade, to show our military strength.”
Trump also noted that the US spent over $700 billion on military spending this year.
