Donald Trump considering military parade for Fourth of July

Trump Considering Holding Military Parade on July 4

Trump, 71, and Macron, 39, who both took office this year as political outsiders, got off to an awkward start with a now-famous handshake in May during they which they gripped each other's right hand so firmly their knuckles turned white. The troops were accompanied by 241 horses, 63 airplanes, and 29 helicopters.

Trump attended Bastille Day on July 14 to celebrate the anniversary of the French revolution. During the Cold War, the practice was avoided as it was feared that it would look like the US was mimicking the Soviet Union. So we're actually thinking about Fourth of July, Pennsylvania Avenue having a really great parade to show our military strength. Because of what I've witnessed, we may do something like that on July Fourth, in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Huffington Post reported in March that emails were exchanged between the Presidential Inaugural Committee and Pentagon officials asking for photographs of "military tactical vehicles" that could be used. The parade cost $12 million, more than half of which came from federal funds.

"I was your guest at Bastille Day, and it was one of the greatest parades I've ever seen", Trump told Macron on Monday at the UN. "And people don't know what great warriors they are in France, but when you see that and you see all the victories, it was a tremendous thing".

Ryanair offers pilots €12000 bonus to forgo annual leave
Those cancellations were sparked by changes to the holiday roster which left Ryanair with too few pilots to cover the flights . Mr O'Leary insisted the airline is "not short of pilots" as he explained the reason behind the cancellations.

"I deplore the USA decision, and I continue dialogue with President Trump because I am convinced that in the end he will see that it is in the interest of Americans to be a part of the Paris climate pact". But Trump wasn't joking.

"We're going to have to try and top it", Trump went on. Plenty of non-authoritarian states have military parades, including the United States in the past. You know, we're spending this year $700 billion - more than we've ever spent - on the military. How it would be funded remains a mystery, as well.

The funniest thing about the military parade idea is that rank-and-file liberals will fall all over themselves attacking Trump for it but the wider public will probably enjoy it and then Democratic presidents will be too scared of being called "anti-military" to end the practice.
