Trump Says Tanks Will Be Part of July 4th Celebration in Washington

July 2, 2019

WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump said he plans to display battle tanks on Washington’s National Mall as part of a pumped-up Fourth of July celebration that will also feature flyovers by fighter jets and other displays of military prowess.

 

Trump said modern M1 Abrams tanks and World War Two-era Sherman tanks would both be on display.

 

“You’ve got to be pretty careful with the tanks because the roads have a tendency not to like to carry heavy tanks, so we have to put them in certain areas,” Trump said.

 

This year, the president is organizing an event called “Salute to America” that will honor the U.S. military.
