Trump says he's considering July 4 parade 'to show our military strength'

President Donald Trump on Monday raved about France's Bastille Day parade and said he is considering having his own military procession in Washington on July 4.

"We're actually thinking about, Fourth of July, Pennsylvania Avenue, having a really great parade to show our military strength," the president said before a bilateral meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron as part of a week of United Nations events.
In France, the July 14 national holiday commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, as part of the French Revolution.

Trump visited France earlier this year during Bastille Day, seeing a display of the country's military in Paris.

Trump has long shown interest in displaying American military might

This is something that tends to happen in dictatorships. You know, Russia, North Korea, etc. Bastille Day is something a lot different from what Independence Day is too. So it isn't comparable.

Remember that he wanted military tanks and equipment in his inaugural parade? He was told we don't allow that in this country. I'm sure he was thinking, but, but, but, Hitler did it. Kim jon-Un does it, so why can't I???

Kim Jong-Un does this so since he showed off his military might, Trump wants to show ours off. Sounds a lot like a, that's nice but mines bigger and better, type of thing. School yard bullies.

The tanks would tear up the roads on top of all the other equipment.

Would he personally pay for the repairs?

They have jobs to do! Parading around to boost Trumps ego isn't one of them.

So? That's the best you got? So you're ok with the Prez showing off his big dick, oops I mean his military? Because you realize that's all it's about for him, his ego.
