Trump’s Fourth Of July Salute To Himself Will Feature ‘Military’ Parade And Flyovers And, presumably, extended attacks on his political opponents.

The festivities will lean heavily on military themes, with the Interior Department somewhat flimsily billing it as an event to “honor America’s armed forces.” This is in keeping with Trump’s longstanding obsession with recreating France’s Bastille Day parade. Trump initially demanded a lavish military parade down the streets of Washington, a plan that staff eventually dissuaded him from because of the stiff costs, including street damage from the heavy tanks and mobile missile platforms Trump wanted as centerpieces of his erectioncelebration.

Trump’s new Fourth of July event is indeed to feature a 10-block “military-themed” parade down Constitution Avenue—likely news to D.C. city officials who will now have to scramble with the additional logistics. It will also feature flyovers by military planes, including one used as Air Force One. (This, too, is the extension of a previous Trump obsession. Trump previously used his personal brand-emblazoned jet as backdrop for campaign rallies, at least once requesting a flyover of his campaign event so that the assembled crowd could properly gape at the majesty of the … passenger plane flying overhead.)
