Donald Trump loves to be flashy and the center of attention, but his latest move could be criticized for being quite dictator-like. It was reported on Tuesday that Trump ordered the Pentagon to hold a grand military parade through Washington, D.C. on his behalf.
According to The Washington Post, during a January 18 meeting in the Pentagon’s “tank room” Trump ordered for a military parade in his honor later this year, adding that it has always been an “abstract desire.”
“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” a military official with knowledge of the meeting told the Post. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”
Trump’s obsession came after he attended a military parade during a visit to France last September.
Trump wants the event to be held for him on July 4th.
