The president first teased the prospect of a July 4th event at the Lincoln Memorial earlier this month.
Speaking to members of his Cabinet, Trump said he was thinking about the idea of a Fourth of July parade, potentially at the Lincoln Memorial, that could “become a tradition.”
“We’re thinking about doing, on the 4th of July or thereabouts, a parade, a ‘Salute to America’ parade. I guess it’d be really more of a gathering than a parade. Perhaps at the Lincoln Memorial. We’re looking at sites. But we’re thinking about doing something that would, perhaps, become a tradition,” he said.
President Trump has for a while wanted to host a celebration or parade in the nation’s capital.
So lock it in.
