President Donald Trump was apparently so inspired by France’s Bastille Day parade that he has proposed holding a similar event in the U.S. next July 4.

Speaking to the press before a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the United Nations, Trump called the Bastille Day event “one of the greatest parades ” he had ever seen.

“We’re actually thinking about Fourth of July, Pennsylvania Avenue, having a really great parade to show our military strength,” Trump said, recalling the celebration of the anniversary of the French revolution he attended on July 14, where he enjoyed the two-hour display of French and American troops marching on the city’s Champs-Élysées avenue and flying overhead.

“It was military might, and I think a tremendous thing for France, for the spirit of France, and people don’t know what great warriors they are in France,” Trump said, adding that he would like to showcase America’s military might in a similar fashion.

“And to a large extent, because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4 in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue,” he said, as Macron broke into a laugh.

“We’re going to have to try and top it. But we had a lot of planes going over, and we had a lot of military might and it was really a beautiful thing to see. They had representatives from different wars in different uniforms. It was really so well done,” he continued.

“We’re spending this year 700 billion, more than we’ve ever spent, on the military, which is good news for you ’cause we’re friends,” Trump told Macron. “And I think we really, we’re looking forward to doing that.”

Macron told Trump “our people” were proud to have him and First Lady Melania Trump visit on Bastille Day.
