WATCH LIVE: Trump’s ‘Salute to America’ Military Event

President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to hold a July 4th celebration — stocked with tanks and other military equipment — is going full steam ahead regardless of his critics.

The “Salute to America,” as it’s been dubbed, is being held at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. It is expected to include military flyovers and, according to Trump, the “biggest ever fireworks.”

Another fireworks display will be held at 9 p.m.

Those fearing that Trump will turn the event into a partisan speech might be reassured by White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley, who told Fox Business Network on Tuesday, “That’s absolutely ridiculous. This is all about a salute to America. The president is not going to get political.”
