Trumped: US president wants a parade like Macron

Ally Or Rival? Macron To Visit Trump On US Visit Late April

Citing two unnamed officials briefed on the planning for the parade, the Post said Trump's desire for a flashy show of strength came to a head in a January 18 meeting with top generals at the Pentagon.

"To hold a big official military parade without any particular reason for it - not to celebrate a victory or commemorate an event but simply to glorify military might - is, to my knowledge, unprecedented in American history", Feller, a historian of the Jackson presidency and the 19th century, said in an email.

Even before becoming the U.S. president, aides reported that Donald Trump had considered a military parade to mark his inauguration.

A date has not yet been set for the proposed parade, but likely occasions are Independence Day on 4 July and Veterans Day on 11 November.

New map and Capture the Flag mode coming soon!
As expected, the event will bring with it a hoard of new Legendary skins - some old, and some new - along with a new Capture map. Blizzard received a lot of feedback from the community on capture the flag and this new map is the result of that feedback.

"We're going to have to try to top it".

"I have seen the president's most ardent defenders use the now-weary argument that the president's comments were meant as a joke, just sarcasm, only tongue in cheek", said Republican Senator Jeff Flake.

Trump's call for a military parade might be hitting a few snags.

Initial planning for the military parade requested by President Donald Trump is now underway, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford has confirmed.

Kristaps Porzingis Out For Season
It's hard to properly gauge how the injury could affect Porzingis's future-and it would definitely be reckless to speculate. After the game, an emergency MRI at Madison Square Garden revealed that Porzingis had torn his ACL.

After witnessing the Bastille Day parade, which features heavy artillery including tanks, during a trip to France last July, Trump said that "it was one of the greatest parades I've ever seen".

Trump has instructed Pentagon officials to plan a grand military parade, which officials have confirmed is in the planning stages.

The last major USA military parade in the nation's capital was following the lightning-fast American victory over the Iraqi army in the 1991 Persian Gulf War. "I regret that without sustained, predictable appropriations, my presence here today wastes your time, because no strategy can survive without the funding necessary to resource it".

Others pointed to expenses - shipping military hardware and the fact that Washington's asphalt roads might not withstand the weight of the 70-ton M1 Abram main battle tanks.

Planets detected outside Milky Way for 1st time
This solid confirmation of planets beyond our galaxy is an incredible feat, and it opens up a world of possibilities in research. Experts say it is still impossible to directly see the newly discovered celestial bodies with even the strongest telescope.

Trump has said he was impressed by the military parade he watched in Paris on July 14. During the height of the Cold War, the USA would occasionally display military hardware as "counterpoint to the parades in front of Lenin's tomb at Red Square", presidential historian Michael Beschloss notes. The historically ignorant will insist it's unprecedented - apparently 1991 is long forgotten ancient history - and some paranoid types will insist the sight of American soldiers marching down American streets is too reminiscent of a military dictatorship, even though occupying forces usually don't wave and smile as ticker-tape runs down.
