President Donald Trump on Monday said he loved France's Bastille Day so much he might bring the idea of a military parade to America as part of a July 4th celebration.
The most benign reason for a procession is the one Trump wants to emulate, marking a national holiday a la France's Bastille Day. People don't know what great warriors they are in France, but when you see that and you see all the victories, it was a tremendous thing.
"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 watched enthusiastically from a reviewing stand on July 14 as the French military showcased its tanks and fighter jets, including many US -made planes, along the famed Champs-Elysees.
"I came back and one of my early calls were, I think we are going to have to start looking at that ourselves", the president told Mr. Macron.
Google Introduces UPI-Based Payment Service App Tez In India
Tech giant Google on Monday joined the bandwagon of Unified Payment Interface (UPI) -based payment apps launching its "Tez" app . If that person is with you, then simply scanning the QR code and utilizing the Cash Mode will make the payment.
It makes me chuckle that Macron invited him to the Bastille Day parade in France thinking that nothing would impress an ostentatious alpha male quite like some military muscle-flexing, and he was totally right. During the Cold War, the practice was avoided as it was feared that it would look like the US was mimicking the Soviet Union.
A Huffington Post report from March revealed that Trump's inaugural committee was "seriously considering adding military vehicles to the Inaugural Parade". "And we're going to show the people as we build up our military, we're going to display our military". "Having a really great parade to show our military strength..."
The government will work to trim public spending to 16 billion euros (19.19 billion USA dollars) next year, down from the original target of 20 billion euros (23.8 billion dollars) revealed in July. The parade usually includes military vehicles and flyovers, and Trump was visibly happy during the event.
"We're spending this year 700 billion, more than we've ever spent, on the military, which is good news for you 'cause we're friends", Trump told Macron.
