The US military has not used the Sherman tanks since WW II and the 1950s.


I guess he is going to show off brand new B-25 bombers and M1 rifles as well.
Don't forget his invisible fighter jets.

Trump orders tanks for Independence Day parade - BBC News

Any Americans in London, can celebrate with us Brits, even though we lost, although we have kegs and bottles rather than tanks.

Here's a few places in London to celebrate 4th July.

Independence Day Events: Where To Celebrate 4 July 2019 In London

Donald Trump is making Great Britain glad they lost.

Anybody believe that he won't politicize the event and make it all about himself is delusional.

"It's all about Meeeeeeee, It's all about Meeeeeee,
Wherever I go, whatever I do,
It's....All......About....Meeeeeeeeeee!

FYI, I'm having a John McCain Tee shirt delivered via Amazon on Weds. Just in time to wear for the 4th.
Trump Derangement Syndrome is real, folks!

America has little to celebrate as long as Off Brand Nixon is in office. We have gone from the leader of the world to the laughingstock of the world in less than three years.

I get that you're still angry over Her epic loss, but that's no reason to throw a tantrum and not celebrate the country's history of independence.

Have a hot dog and a beer, and chill!

Sorry, Donald. No matter how badly you want to be seen as such, you will NEVER be an honored and respected military member.

If you wanted to be seen as a hero and veteran so badly, you should've served in Vietnam and not received FIVE deferments to avoid military service. Coward.

Things worked out very well in the end, Britain was able to pass the global mantle to the US, a country built on very good principles.

I am sure America will survive Trump, in the meantime we Brits are happy to have a drink and even buy Americans a drink this 4th July.

Trump's fourth of July is partially an invite only affair. Much of the area around the publicly owned Lincoln Memorial national monument will be reserved for Trump's friends, family, and VIP guests. The White House will distribute tickets per its selection for the area from the steps to halfway down to the reflecting pool.

The United States is now seen in the eyes of the world the way Macron, Theresa May, and Christine Lagarde, the International Monetary Fund managing director looked at Ivanka when she tried to butt into a conversation where she wasn't welcome.

We have been considerably diminished by this nitwit adminstration.

Maybe he can borrow some goose-stepping North Korean soldiers. And some missiles.

Just so long as it doesn't result in "Red Dawn" being replayed in real life.

I remember when North Korea was our enemy.
