Trump plans military parade for Independence Day

Kurds one stateless people across four countries

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday he continued to talk to U.S. leader Donald Trump about re-entering the Paris climate pact but that there was no scope for a renegotiation of the existing terms.

Although Trump is deeply unpopular in France, he was invited for the 100th Bastille Day ceremony in Paris by Macron in an effort to strengthen the relationship between the two countries and their new leaders.

Macron tried to convince him to change his mind during Trump's July visit to Paris.

The military parade was "I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France", Trump said Monday.

Trump also noted that the US spent over $700 billion on military spending this year.

"To a large extent because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4 in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue", he told reporters.

Trump attended Bastille Day on July 14 to celebrate the anniversary of the French revolution.

Oklahoma State is now ranked No. 6, just ahead of Washington . - UCLA, which lost 48-45 at Memphis. In the Big 12, Oklahoma state rose three spots to No. 6 after a 59-21 victory at Pittsburgh.

It was one of the greatest parades I had ever seen.

"I came back and one of my early calls were, I think we are going to have to start looking at that ourselves", Trump told Macron during a meeting in NY on September 18.

"We're going to have to try and top it", Trump went on. "I mean, we're going to be showing [off] our military".

The president's infatuation with military parades dates back to at least December, when emails obtained by the Huffington Post revealed that his team had explored - and ultimately rejected - the idea of including military vehicles in his inaugural parade.

It would take place on July 4 in Washington with, as Trump envisions it, tanks and planes rolling down and streaking above Pennsylvania Avenue. "Having a really great parade to show our military strength..."

When asked Monday about the president's designs for a grand military parade on Independence Day, the White House told BuzzFeed News it had "nothing to add at this time".

Trump said he was so impressed by the military parade in France that he would like to recreate it in Washington.
