White House says Trump has asked for military parade

Washington: US President Donald Trump has asked for a military parade to showcase American muscle and underscore his role as commander-in-chief, the White House said today.

Trump, who has toyed with the idea of a parade in Washington since before being sworn in, has made the request to officers, who are looking for a date.
“President Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe.

He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation,” said press secretary Sarah Sanders.
