Trump 'Salute to America' on July 4
President Trump on Sunday said his administration would hold one of the "biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C." on July 4.
"HOLD THE DATE!" Trump tweeted. "We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C., on July 4th.
"It will be called 'A Salute To America' and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!"

Trump said earlier this month that he was thinking about putting on a Fourth of July gathering in Washington, D.C., and he suggested that the event could become a "tradition."
"It could be a very exciting day," Trump said. "It'll be a, really a gathering, as opposed to a parade I guess you'd have to say. Perhaps at the Lincoln Memorial. We're looking at sites. But we're thinking about doing something which would become perhaps, become a tradition, Salute to America, on July 4th or July 4th weekend, somewhere around that area."
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
