I want one! Trump demands military parade like Macron’s

President Trump has told the Pentagon to plan a grand military parade which could put tanks and troops on the streets of Washington.
Preparations are under way for a display inspired by Bastille Day celebrations in France, it was reported last night.
Mr Trump was dazzled by the parade he watched with President Macron last year, which included tanks, jets painting a Tricolour over the Arc de Triomphe and a brass band performing hits by the electronic duo Daft Punk.

“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” a military official told The Washington Post. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”
Mr Trump said the Bastille Day parade was one of the best he had ever seen when he brought it up two months later at a meeting with Mr Macron.
Sitting next to the French leader, he said: “We may have to top it.”

That little Korean chap with the dodgy haircut also likes a nice parade.
