The White House confirmed on Tuesday that President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to explore organizing a major military parade — a desire he first expressed after the martial welcome he received on a visit to France last year.
“President Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation.”
“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” a military official told The Post. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”
