U.S. President Donald Trump says military tanks will be part of a special 4th July show in Washington this week. The show is part of a yearly celebration of the country's declaration of independence from Britain in 1776. But this celebration does not usually include U.S. military vehicles. These and some of Trump's other ideas for the special show are changes from the usual Independence Day traditions. We are going to have a great 4th July in Washington, D.C., the President said. It'll be special. And I hope a lot of people come. And it's going to be about this country and is a salute to America. Last year, Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, spent the day at the White House with invited guests and their families. This year, he plans to give a speech at the Lincoln Memorial. The event is free and open to the public. And the area can hold a large crowd. Trump has also expanded the yearly fireworks show and moved it closer to the Lincoln Memorial. In addition, military fighter jets will be flying overhead. These changes have caused concern among some U.S. officials, who note that they will cost additional money and effort. Others worry that Trump's plans will make the show feel more like a political campaign event than a celebration of the country's independence. In the past, the 4th July has not supported a political party or candidate. Because Trump is seeking reelection in 2020, some American worry he will give a political speech. However, the top official for the event says Trump's speech will be patriotic. And some D.C. officials are concerned about the tanks. They say the heavy vehicles could damage the city's streets. Trump did not say earlier this week where they tanks would be. He said they would be stationed outside. The President said two years ago he wanted a military parade of tanks and other equipment in the nation's capital. He saw a similar parade on France's Bastille Day during a visit to Paris in 2017. At the time, his proposal was not accepted, partly because of cost. But the President seems to have held on to the idea.
