Default Trump takes over DC Fourth of July event, adding himself to program

Quote:
President Trump has effectively taken charge of the nation’s premier Fourth of July celebration in Washington, moving the gargantuan fireworks display from its usual spot on the Mall to be closer to the Potomac River and making tentative plans to address the nation from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, according to top administration officials.
Quote:
The president’s starring role has the potential to turn what has long been a nonpartisan celebration of the nation’s founding into another version of a Trump campaign rally. Officials said it is unclear how much the changes may cost, but the plans have already raised alarms among city officials and some lawmakers about the potential impact of such major alterations to a time-honored and well-organized summer tradition.
Quote:
Fireworks on the Mall, which the National Park Service has orchestrated for more than half a century, draw hundreds of thousands of Americans annually and mark one of the highlights of the city’s tourist season. The event has been broadcast live on television since 1947 and since 1981 has been accompanied by a free concert on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol featuring high-profile musicians and a performance by the National Symphony Orchestra.
Quote:
The new event, to be called “A Salute to America,” will shift the fireworks launch to West Potomac Park, less than a mile southwest of its usual location near the Washington Monument. In addition to a possible address by Trump, the location may feature a second stage of entertainment apart from the performers at the Capitol, officials said.
Quote:
The revised Independence Day celebration is the culmination of two years of attempts by Trump to create a major patriotic event centered on him and his supporters, including failed efforts to mount a military parade modeled on the Bastille Day celebration in France. The new event has become a top priority for new Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, who Trump tasked with the job three months ago, officials said.
Quote:
The president has received regular briefings on the effort in the Oval Office and has gotten involved in the minutiae of the planning — and initially argued that the fireworks should be launched from a barge in the Potomac River, administration aides said. The president has shown interest in the event that he often does not exhibit for other administration priorities, the aides added.
Quote:
“I think the president is excited about the idea, and we’re working hard on it, and I think it could be very, very meaningful,” Bernhardt said in an interview. “The president loves the idea, as probably all Americans do, of celebrating America on the Fourth of July, or thereabouts.”
Quote:
The city [is] concerned about moving the fireworks and about the logistics of the president traveling to the Mall to address the crowds, which could cut off the flow of visitors to and from nearby Metro stations.
“We have a lot of people come to the Fourth of July. Logistically, over the years, the kinks have been worked out,” the official said. “We don’t want to throw off what already works.”
Quote:
The president’s idea for a Trump-influenced Fourth of July celebration began within hours of attending a lavish Bastille Day parade in Paris in 2017, former aides say. Before Air Force One took off to return from France, Trump came to the back of the staff cabin and laid out the particulars of a proposed military parade in Washington — down to the types of tanks that he wanted in the streets and the kind of aircraft he wanted to fly overhead.
The idea later shifted to become a Veterans Day-linked parade instead, before collapsing altogether last August as costs for the potential event ballooned. Trump blamed local officials in canceling the event.
Then, this past February, Trump announced on Twitter that Americans should “HOLD THE DATE!” on July 4 for a “Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!”

Love it. If Trump blinks libs sh*t themselves, rofl.

Personally I don't have a prob with the POTUS addressing the country on the 4th of July. Seems appropriate. This is just more TDS.

Dems fume as Trump moves to amend DC's July 4 celebration, possibly address the nation

BBBut Trump is hiring ENTERTAINMENT and giving a SPEECH.

Correction: Park Service MAY hire additional entertainment, and Trump MAY give a speech.

So Trump must be bad.

From a local news outlet...Please notice the bold...

Quote:
President Donald Trump is putting his own mark on the annual Fourth of July celebration in D.C., including moving the location of the fireworks display and planning an address on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

The National Park Service said that this year’s fireworks — which have been launched from a location along the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool for the last several years — will blast off from West Potomac Park.
The fact that this news outlet points out that the location is changing from the "last several years" tells me that the current locations is NOT decades old and some ancient tradition....

That means it was changed before...and most likely, before that, too...

On other words, this is typical TDS...When someone makes a change, no biggie....But if that person is"Donald Trump", then OUTRAAAAAAAGE!!!!!!!...
