    As long as he stands before the parade wearing his military medals I have no problem with it. If Putin can do it why not Trump. What's the difference?

    I wish thousands of people turned their back on him and mooned him as he spoke.

    Re: Trump still wants tanks displayed at July 4th celebration

    The Trump-O-Rama.



    Abrams tanks arrived in Washington by rail and under cover of darkness Monday night.








    The military have shipped two Bradley fighting vehicles (left), an M88A2 Hercules recovery vehicle in case they break down (center) and a support Humvee, and two M1 Abrams tanks from Fort Stewart in Georgia.





    The current National Weather Service forecast for Thursday in Washington, D.C., predicted temperatures of 92 degrees and rain with the possibility of thunderstorms. The fireworks will be cancelled in case of heavy rain, thunderstorms or high winds.


    Trump is essentially producing the holiday show himself, having extensive briefings on the subject and weighing in on all aspects – from where the fireworks should be launched to how the military will be honored.

    The president has added extra touches to this year’s event.

    The fireworks display will be twice as long as those in the past and include new elements – such as a massive American flag and the words ‘U.S.A.’ spelled out in the sky.

    The fireworks display will run from 9.07pm to 9.42pm.

    There will also be a flyover from Air Force One, the Blue Angels – the US Navy’s flight demonstration squadron – and other military planes. [Blue Angles had been scheduled to have holiday time June 30 through July 6.]



    Fourth of July Events
    National Independence Day Parade


    11:45 a.m. – 2 p.m., Constitution Avenue NW from 7th Street NW to 17th Street NW

    Marching bands, fife and drum corps, floats, military units, giant balloons, equestrian, drill teams and more celebrate Independence Day.

    Salute to America

    6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., Lincoln Memorial

    President Donald J. Trump honors America’s armed forces with music, military demonstrations, flyovers and much more. Participants include the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, the U.S. Army Band (“Pershing’s Own”), the Armed Forces Chorus, the United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Team, and many others. Gates open at 3:30 p.m.

    Capitol Concert – A Capitol Fourth

    8 p.m. – 9:30 p.m., West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol

    This all-star salute to America’s 243rd birthday with performances by Grammy Award-winning music legend Carole King, multi-platinum recording artist Vanessa Williams, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat, the National Symphony Orchestra, and a special appearance by the Sesame Street Muppets!

    Fireworks Display

    9:07 p.m., National Mall & Neighboring Parks

    Independence Day culminates with a spectacular fireworks display launched from West Potomac Park and behind the Lincoln Memorial which will be visible from many locations throughout D.C. and Northern Virginia.


    The Republican National Committee will offer major donors tickets to the VIP section to hear the president’s address, the Huffington Post reported. ‘He’s going to have tanks out there. It’s going to be cool,’ one fundraiser told the publication. White House officials deny that is the case – even though the Republican Party is handing out tickets to a special VIP section to hear the president’s remarks.

    ‘That’s absolutely ridiculous,’ Deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley said Tuesday morning on Fox Business Network. ‘This is all about a salute to America. The president is not going to get political. He’s going to celebrate the greatest country, the greatest idea in the history of the world, and that is the United States of America.’

    President Trump is still pushing Defense Department officials to include tanks or other military hardware in his planned “Salute to America” celebration on the Fourth of July.
    The commander in chief wants Abrams tanks or Bradley Fighting Vehicles for Thursday’s event on the Mall, The Washington Post reported Monday
    The president has wanted a military-style parade of some sort since he watched the Bastille Day parade in Paris with French President Emmanuel Macron in July 2017 and came away impressed by the show of military might.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Just like any other dictator, Trump wants to show off his big guns. But July 4th is the celebration of America's independence from England, it shouldn't be a display of military might. He wanted a big military parade down Pennsylvania Ave but that was nixed because of, oh you know....all those pesky telephone poles and asphalt that would crumble under the weight of tanks.

    Trump's strongest support comes from the Armband Right to include its Christian soldiers literal and metaphorical.
    Well, you are clearly clueless about Trump. Jeez, he's their worst nightmare, especially after ass kissing Obama. Oh, they sure wish he was back. Begging Putin, throwing money at Iran and Cuba... oh, quite the good times for the dictators of this world.

    I think our dumbass president should read a book or google tanks.


    “You’ve got to be pretty careful with the tanks, because the roads have a tendency not to like to carry heavy tanks," he said. “So we have to put them in certain areas, but we have the brand new Sherman tanks and we have the brand new Abram tanks."

    The M4 Sherman, best known for its role in World War II, went out of service in 1957. The M1 Abrams came online in 1980.
    Yeah Trump is an idiot so what else is new. Still doesn't change the fact that he lives rent free in your head.

Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    Probably no increase at all. How's that for your non sequitur of a question?

    I know exactly what this board is about. Doesn't change the fact that several posters on here including humble are obsessed with Trump. Not everything involves Trump and not everything he does is some horrible event. There is a difference between discussing something and being obsessed.

    I get it that you have to defend any one who shares your hate of Trump but at some point it's just silly. I am sure that when someone on the left talks about how the right is obsessed with AOC for talking about her so much you chime in with this little bit about this being a discussion board right. We both know you don't. Your hate for Trump just blinds you to the truth

    And I could care less if some one is criticizing Trump for legitimate reasons. Of which there are plenty due to Trump being an idiot and an embarrassment to this country.
