It will be decided whether Washington’s first Grand military parade for 27 years
Who came up with the idea of holding a parade in the city, and who speaks out strongly against at the TASS.
The last full-fledged military parade in the USA was in 1991. In the capital, and largest city — new York. As Americans celebrated the end of the Gulf war, which made President George Bush Sr. the winner and the people’s favorite.
Americans love parades?
Love. In only one new York city every year they pass more than two dozen — dedicated to the holidays of parades on veterans Day and thanksgiving to ethnic and religious (Persian parade and the St. Patrick’s Parade).
But the large military parades in the country have not been. Now in the U.S. I remember the parades on the day of the inauguration of John F. Kennedy and Dwight Eisenhower, as well as a 30-strong parade of 1942 in new York.
Who came up with the idea of holding such a parade?
The President of the United States Donald Trump. In September, he visited the annual military parade on the Champs Elysees in Paris, timed to coincide with Bastille Day, where he invited the President of Emmanuel macron. Since then he became obsessed with the idea of holding an even more ambitious parade in the us capital.
