Who loves a parade? Trump wants to showcase military might

Kerber exorcises New York demons in Tokyo

So impressed was Trump with the Bastille Day spectacle that he revealed Monday he has asked his chief of staff, retired Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, to look into planning a Bastille Day-like parade of USA military might on July 4.

Macron chuckled as Trump recalled the "beautiful thing" he witnessed in Paris, saying one of his "early calls" when he returned to the White House was for creating a US-version.

Although Trump is deeply unpopular in France, he was invited for the 100th Bastille Day ceremony in Paris by Macron in an effort to strengthen the relationship between the two countries and their new leaders.

"I was your guest at Bastille Day, and it was one of the greatest parades I've ever seen", Trump told Macron, who sat next to him. "It was a tremendous thing for France, and for the spirit of France". "We're thinking ... of having a really great parade, to show our military strength".

There is nothing like a military parade for the enjoyment of Donald Trump.

"We're going to have to try and top it", Trump went on.

"Mostly because of what I've witnessed, I'm thinking about doing something like this on July 4 in Washington, Pennsylvania Avenue", the U.S. president said.

He noted that France's parade featured representatives from different wars and armed forces wearing different uniforms.

What the ignorant commander-in-chief doesn't understand, however, is that becoming more like North Korea won't help the US avert a nuclear war. And he told The Washington Post in January that he hoped that during his tenure, USA military might would be on display. He continued on to say that he's speaking with his chief of staff John Kelly to see how to make it happen. "Having a really great parade to show our military strength..."

But, France wants Kurdistan to consider supporting Iraq and not separation, he said. But those patriotic processions typically involve marching bands and uniformed elements, not the grand display of military hardware that Trump envisions. He also told The Washington Post he wanted to have several military parades, to display America's military might.
