Donald Trump has been urging the Pentagon to give him a military parade with tanks like the one he saw on the Bastille Day event in Paris last year. Turns out Trump will be getting a parade after all, but it’s not what he thought it would be.
Trump’s dreams of having a “huge” military parade have been crushed according to CNN. The news site reported that Trump will not have any tanks at his parade.
CNN reported Friday that Trump’s grand military parade “will not involve any heavy military vehicles like tanks to avoid doing damage to the streets of Washington.”
CNN received a memo from the Joint Chiefs of Staff who said the parade will “include wheeled vehicles only, no tanks” and that “consideration must be given to minimize damage to local infrastructure.”
