A mistake in a tweet sent by President Trump that referenced "Aircraft One" forced the Commander-in-Chief to delete the message. The president has been taken with the idea of a military display since attending Bastille Day celebrations in Paris in 2017.
He called the history of the United States "the epic tale of a great nation of people who have risked everything for what they know is right and what they know is true". According to the Department of Interior, this year's annual Independence Day celebration on the National Mall, will feature music, flyovers, fireworks, and an address by President Trump.
Trump promoted the event all week, promising there would be tanks on display.
"As we gather this evening in the joy of freedom, we remember that we all share a truly extraordinary heritage".
A celebration of patriotism, not politics - that's what U.S. In a letter to acting secretary of defense Mark T Esper, secretary of the interior David Bernhardt, and secretary of transportation Elaine L Chao, he expressed worry that the Trump administration is wasting scarce national park, infrastructure and defence funding on a military-style vanity project that some warn could cause damage to the National Mall and other infrastructure.
He was the first president in almost seven decades to address a crowd at the National Mall on Independence Day.
In addition to raising questions about whether this is a frugal use of taxpayer money, the decision is also controversial, because the Republican National Committee and Trump's 2020 reelection campaign are distributing passes to VIPs to the event.
