WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is promising military tanks along with “Incredible Flyovers & biggest ever Fireworks!” for the Fourth of July in Washington.

But the District of Columbia’s government’s says “Tanks, but no tanks.” Others say Trump will politicize the festivities.

Trump said Monday that tanks will be part of a special event he’s headlining Thursday to honor the military. An Associated Press photographer found at least two tanks and other military vehicles on flatcars in a railyard in southeast Washington.

Trump tweeted Tuesday: “Big 4th of July in D.C. ‘Salute to America.’ The Pentagon & our great Military Leaders are thrilled to be doing this & showing to the American people, among other things, the strongest and most advanced Military anywhere in the World. Incredible Flyovers & biggest ever Fireworks!”

    We never done this before in the USA because of cost
    But it seams to #45 he does not care because it is not his money

    Impeach the idiot

    • We the people

      Wings, it’s called respect to the ones that gave their all, and being a patriot to our country, no other President had the balls to do what he is doing, a what little money is spent doing this is well worth it, he could be giving money to other things that would hurt our country like Obama did and the same ones you support, it’s a shame on people like you and others that don’t support the true American ways.

        Little money, think again, over 92 million think again
        I am all for patriotism so do not go there with me.
        Impeach the idiot
