Trump revives idea that Pentagon once nixed: Parading military gear in DC

Trump revives idea that Pentagon once nixed: Parading military gear in DC

"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".

Back in July, Donald Trump went to Paris.

"It was one of the greatest parades I've ever seen.Because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4th in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue", Trump said in a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at Manhattan's Palace Hotel. "It was 2 hours on the button and was military might", Trump said, according to a pool report.

The improvements "allow us to get out of this level of excessive expenditure" and help bolster France's political weight in Europe, he said.

I have a presence and an aura about me that's very reality-based. "And I want to be happy, and ideal my craft in doing so". Understanding the magnitude of the moment. "Because I knew it was going to be madness, and it turned out to be like that".

"I came back and one of my early calls were, I think we are going to have to start looking at that ourselves", Trump told Macron during a meeting in NY on September 18.

The annual parade commemorates the 1789 storming of the Bastille prison, a major turning point in the French Revolution. He said he was impressed by the military parade in central Paris in July, when he was visiting the French capital.

Trump hoped to have military vehicles in his Inauguration Day parade, but this plan never came to fruition.

Defense Department officials reportedly denied a request from Trump's transition team to include heavy military vehicles in his inaugural parade from the Capitol to the White House.

After spike, gas prices are slowly dropping in Mass.
During the same time in 2014, oil was (and usually is) the main driver of pump prices, as crude traded between $65-$75 per barrel. The most expensive gas reported Sunday in the city was $3.31 at a North Patterson Street retailer, according to gasbuddy.

"We're going to have to try and top it", he said of the Bastille Day parade.

Trump watched enthusiastically from a reviewing stand on July 14 as the French military showcased its tanks and fighter jets, including many USA -made planes, along the famed Champs-Elysees. Plenty of non-authoritarian states have military parades, including the United States in the past.

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. But it wasn't the first time Trump has talked about wanting a military parade in the streets of Washington.
