Story and background from CNBC news – Trump got his hair brain idea and he was inspired by the parade in France he saw in the ceremony celebrating France's Bastille Day military parade in Paris on July 14, 2017.
Then in September, Trump met with French President Emmanuel Macron and recalled how much he enjoyed watching their parade, and he said: “It was a tremendous day, and to a large extent because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4 in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue. We're going to have to try to top it, but we have a lot of planes going over and a lot of military might, and it was really a beautiful thing to see, and representatives from different wars and different uniforms.”
