Trump and the RNC have set aside special seating for their big donors. It's not even the 4th. yet and the DC celebration is a political rally.

After talking with Putin and Kim He's in dictator mode now. Wanting troops and tanks to parade by him to fluff up his ego. If nothing, he's predictable.

Trump learned a lot about egoism from watching Obama all those years.

Hey, Katie-

Trump's wealth is legendary (in both senses).

Why, then, if he wants to throw a party on the Mall to celebrate himself on July 4, does he not offer to pay all expenses himself, rather than stick the struggling and underfunded National Park Service (plus the D.C. police) with the bill?

Nailed it.

Only a true narcissist would want to hijack the 4th of July celebration and find a way to insert himself.

Most Trump supporters are aware of this, but they'll either deflect or ignore. Can you imagine what the very same Trump supporters celebrating Trump's speech tomorrow would have said if Obama did this 3 years ago?

Too bad he didn't learn decency and honor as well.

Don't be ridiculous. Everyone knows Trump is incapable of learning.

Why do democrats care where Trump decides to give a July 4th public address ?
If you think it's just Dems who are disgusted you are wrong. I have plenty of R and I family members who are shaking their heads as well. Many people dislike Trump and his adolescent, narcissistic behavior AND love the National Park system and hate seeing much needed funding wasted for this extravaganza.

There were many Rs who either didn't vote or held their nose and only voted for Trump because he wasn't Hillary.

Trumps parade is going to be pathetic by comparison.
