Donald Trump asks for military parade to underscore role as commander-in-chief, says White House

Washington: US president Donald Trump has asked for a military parade to showcase American muscle and underscore his role as commander-in-chief, the White House said on Tuesday.

Trump, who has toyed with the idea of a parade in Washington since before being sworn in, has made the request to officers, who are looking for a date.

"President Trump is incredibly supportive of America's great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe. He has asked the Department of Defence to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation," said press secretary Sarah Sanders.
