    Donald Trump wants a military parade to show off US strength

    Because Trump has asked the Pentagon to plan a grand parade of armed forces in Washington to celebrate US military strength. The president wants an elaborate parade this year with soldiers marching and tanks rolling, according to The Washington Post. No date has yet been selected for the parade.
    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the request, saying Mr Trump wants the Pentagon to ‘explore a celebration’ that will allow Americans to show appreciation for the military. Pentagon spokesman Charlie Summers said officials are aware of the request and are ‘looking at options’. The US has not traditionally embraced showy displays of raw military power, such as North Korea’s parading of ballistic missiles as a claim of international prestige and influence.
