President - Business Standard

President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron, along with Brigitte Macron, attend the annual Bastille Day military parade on Champs-Elysees Avenue in Paris July 14, 2017.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser's spokeswoman said the District had no formal request for a parade but "just like the wall, he will have to pay for it", a reference to Trump's plan to build a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border and have Mexico pay for it. He now commands Hollywood Post 43 of the American Legion, and he, too, thinks a military parade may not be such a bad idea. During a January 18 meeting, he directed top generals to organize such a parade on the scale of France's Bastille Day celebrations, reports Greg Jaffe and Philip Rucker for The Washington Post. Now the plan has become an official marching order and it seems that preparations are underway. "Lots of military might", he told the French president.

"After all, these men risked their lives to protect us", Schumer said at the time.

According to the Post, no date has been selected, but officials are considering July 4, Memorial Day on May 28, and Veterans Day on November 11.

Part two of " Celebrity Big Brother's " premiere airs Thursday at 8 p.m. on CBS. Manigault Newman retorted with a slow nod, saying, "yes".

When the parade takes place, it will be the first such showing of military prowess in the United States since 1991, when the country celebrated victory over Saddam Hussein's Iraq at the end of the First Gulf War. "DOD officials say its certainly not unprecedented".

Maj. David Eastburn, a spokesman for the Department of Defense, told BuzzFeed that Mattis is expected to present recommendations to the president, but that Trump would make the final decision.

Lawmakers from both parties, ex-administration officials and members of the media, including Fox News, criticized the idea, calling it a waste of money and warning that it would appear "totalitarian" and evoke similar demonstrations in North Korea and Russian Federation.
