President Trump is planning to take a starring role in the capital’s Fourth of July celebrations.
Plans are in the works to move the giant fireworks display that the National Parks Service has hosted on the National Mall for more than half a century to a park less than a mile away, and Trump plans to make a speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, according to The Hill.
The Trump Administration claims the move will allow more people to attend. The fireworks display usually draws hundreds of thousands of people and is a big part of the tourism season in Washington DC.
The president is personally involved in the planning and is getting regular briefings in the Oval Office on the festivities, the Washington Post reported.
