(Newser) – President Trump is once again proposing a parade. This time, it's an Independence Day parade at the Lincoln Memorial. According to USA Today, Trump told Cabinet members Tuesday that a July 4 parade at the memorial "could be an exciting day" and might "become a tradition." Trump made headlines pushing for a military parade last year that was projected to cost up to $92 million; the idea was ultimately axed. His new idea might not actually be for a parade, per se, he continued, per the Hill: "It'll be a, really a gathering as opposed to a parade I guess you'd have to say," the president said, calling it a "Salute to America." Washington DC does have already-established Fourth of July events including a parade down Constitution Ave., a concert, and a fireworks show. (Trump said his military parade was scuttled due to local politicians' greed.)
