Lawmakers rain on Trump's idea for military parade through Washington

Trump has been imagining a military parade for over a year

Trump tells Pentagon to plan military parade in Washington

From all accounts, we're doing this because France has an annual Bastille Day Parade and when Trump visited France recently, he was invited to be in the reviewing stand alongside President Macron.

Trump has been talking about one since before his inauguration, and was re-inspired this summer after seeing one on Bastille Day in France.

"We're going to have to try to top it", he added.

"This all revolves around the simple fact that this has nothing to do with the military and military families, but everything to do with Donald Trump forcing the military to publically salute him", Fischer told the Daily News on Wednesday afternoon. He gave the marching orders during a meeting with top generals at the Pentagon on January 18, according to the Post. "He has asked the Department of Defence to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation", Sanders said. The meeting was attended by Vice President Mike Pence, White House chief of staff John Kelly, Defense Secretary James Mattis, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Joseph Dunford. "This is about the president wanting to honor the military", White House Legislative Director Marc Short said on MSNBC Wednesday.

USA military members commonly participate in parades on the Fourth of July and other holidays to mark appreciation and remembrance of military veterans, but these typically do not include gaudy displays of military hardware.

The cover art puts T'Challa's ( Chadwick Boseman ) necklace front and center, featured against a black background. As for the soundtrack , Lamar has contributed five tracks in total, including the title track " Black Panther ".

One possibility would be to stage the parade on Veteran's Day in November, which would coincide with the centennial of the end of World War I. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, tweeted Tuesday night that "a military parade costs millions".

Though the US has held a few military parades throughout its history, Slate points out that the distinction is that these events were held in celebration after successfully winning a war, such as World War I, World War II and the Spanish-American War. ".the President has great affection and respect for the military".

As for when the parade would occur, the Post reported the president would like to tie it to a patriotic holiday. For one thing, Washington's streets are not built to support 70-ton tanks.

The cost of the march has yet to be calculated, but would likely run into the tens of millions. The route would be similar to Trump's inaugural parade, which goes right by the Trump International Hotel in D.C., several outlets pointed out. Not surprisingly, military parades do not come cheap.

Parades also marked the end of World War; one of the biggest, in NY, took place on January 12, 1946. We have the best and most expensive military ever assembled.
