U.S. military parades throughout history

Trump Saw A Military Parade In France And Now He Wants One Of His Very Own

US President Donald Trump has told Pentagon officials to plan a large-scale military parade in the nation's capital this year.

President Donald Trump's dream of a grand military parade through the streets of the USA capital attracted scorn, skepticism and even a dash of wit from local officials on Wednesday. "He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation".

Following the report in the Washington Post, it was later confirmed by Gen. James Mattis and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that a parade was in the works, but that it was in the early stages. On a logistical level, some have expressed concern that the weight of military tanks could do significant damage to Washington's roads. He raised the idea at the start of a meeting in NY with French President Emmanuel Macron, as he gushed about the Bastille Day military parade in Paris that Trump attended in July as Macron's guest.

President Andrew Johnson called the parade in an effort to forge national unity, and improve the national mood just one month after the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

President Trump wants a parade celebrating our military and troops.

That same day, he would tell Macron, "We're going to have to try to top it".

One option under consideration is for a parade on November 11 - which would be the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.

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.

Trump reminisced about watching France's Bastille Day military parade when he visited Paris in July. "And I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France". After giving a short news brief on the parade, co-host Steve Doocy seemed fine with the idea, saying, "There are a lot of people at the Pentagon who would love to show off all the equipment".

Trump is said to have mused to advisers on the way home about his desire for a similar event to tout American military might in Washington, D.C.

Those in the White House, however, have denied that it would be considered a waste. "I don't believe we should have tanks or nuclear weapons going down Pennsylvania Avenue", said U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin.

The Washington, D.C. City Council - which is dominated by Democrats - mocked the idea of the city hosting a parade featuring military hardware.

The cost ranged between $4.3 million (3.5 million euros) to $4.9 million (4 million euros), which comes out of the French defense budget. A parade - one that honors them, not Trump - is overdue.
