Trump Wants A Grand Military Parade For The Fourth Of July

Trump raised the idea at the start of a meeting in NY with French President Emmanuel Macron, as he gushed to Macron about the Bastille Day military parade in Paris that Trump attended in July as the French president's guest.

"I was your guest at Bastille Day, and it was one of the greatest parades I've ever seen", Trump told Macron on Monday at the UN.

Of all the leaders gathered in NY for the annual U.N. General Assembly, Trump is arguably closest to Macron, despite their differences in age and political philosophy.

"We're going to have to try and top it", he said of the Bastille Day parade.

Trump has also been critical of the United Nations and has promised to cut the U.S. contribution to its budget, which is the largest. (China, Russia and the United Kingdom round out the group.) That is an immensely powerful clique, one that can potentially sway the rest of the world's leaders into declaring war, imposing sanctions, or block them from taking any action at all.

French President Emmanuel Macron speaks to President Donald J. Trump during the Bastille Day military parade in Paris, July 14, 2017. "We will act to prevent Iran from establishing permanent military bases in Syria for its air, sea and ground forces", he said.

Trump and Macron held talks on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

Seated beside the USA president, Macron said: "The strength that unites our relationship is that we say everything".

"We'll see if we can do it this year", he said. It would be "a grave error" to renounce or fail to respect it, he said, adding he told both USA and Iranian leaders that yesterday.

Mr Trump said he was prepared "to totally destroy North Korea".

Still, the French leader called the United States a "historic partner" of France - "now and in the future". Hook said the president left Paris with a "lot of good examples".

Trump said he has discussed the parade idea with his chief of staff, John Kelly, a retired Marine general.

Macron's statements on Iran were in sharp contrast to the speech delivered by both President Trump and Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu. "I continue to talk to the United States with the hope that it comes back into the global fold and clarifies its vision of things".
