After Seeing France's Military Parade, Trump Wants An Even Bigger One

The military parade was "I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France", Trump said Monday.

"I'm proposing additional elements (to the deal) that are independent, but that will alleviate concerns that the United States and countries in the region may have", Macron said. It was really a attractive thing to see. So much so, he wants to see if the US can "top it" with a military parade of its own down Pennsylvania Avenue for the 4th of July.

"We should also fight against the financing of terrorism".

Since that July visit, he's been seriously thinking of staging a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., on the Fourth of July.

The president's infatuation with military parades dates back to at least December, when emails obtained by the Huffington Post revealed that his team had explored - and ultimately rejected - the idea of including military vehicles in his inaugural parade.

Without prompting, he cautioned Republicans on Sunday against the instinct to "ram through our proposal" with a party-line vote. Cassidy-Graham faces a steep climb, with some Republican senators including Rand Paul of Kentucky already vocally opposing it.

" It is in everyone's interest", Trump said, "to seek a future where nations can be sovereign", a word he used 19 times in his speech.

French and European diplomats said Macron had also had a frank exchange with Iran's president Hassan Rouhani on Monday, warning him that Tehran should stop destabilizing the region and stoking Trump's furor. And to a large extent, because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4th in Washington, down Pennsylvania Avenue.

"You know, we're spending this year $700 billion - more than we've ever spent on the military - which is a good thing for you because we're friends", he told Macron".

"Frankly, I don't think you've heard the last of it", the US President added. "I'm speaking with General Kelly and with all of the people involved, and we'll see if we can do it this year", he added, referring to his Chief of Staff John Kelly.

The move would "yield no results for the U.S., but at the same time it will generally decrease and cut away and chip away at global trust placed in the United States of America", he said.
