Trump Focuses on the Military during US Independence Day Celebration
Thursday, 4 July 2019 23:40 WIB | GLOBAL |AmerikaGlobal

The United States welcomes its Independence Day holiday Thursday (4/7) featuring traditional fireworks, family and friends meeting events in various communities and unconventional speeches by President Donald Trump.

This Fourth of July celebration commemorates the declaration of American independence from Britain in 1776. In the state capital, Washington, this holiday attracts thousands of people to National Square to watch concerts or watch fireworks.

This year, Trump announced the addition of the "Salute to America" program to discuss American military power, which also featured his speech from the steps of the Lincoln Monument.

The Defense Department confirmed that Acting Secretary of Defense Mark Esper and America's highest military official, Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford had accepted the president's invitation to attend this Thursday event.

Other high-ranking defense officials, including the deputy chief minister of the Army, Minister of the Navy, Acting Minister of the Air Force, deputy commander of the Marine Corps Development Command and commander of the American Coast Guard will also open the event.

In addition, the Department of Defense stated that the White House has provided 5,000 event tickets for the person.

The American president usually does not invite much publicity at the Independence Day celebrations. Trump critics must announce that he will turn this event into a campaign meeting because he is ready to campaign for the election for the future he wants.

There are also questions about the costs of adding military hardware and missions as part of the celebration.

White House officials replied that Trump would be free of politics and the meeting was patriotic.

Trump cheated Wednesday the cost "will be much smaller than the meaning."
