Washington D.C. [U.S.A], Feb. 7 (ANI): President Donald Trump has asked for a 'military parade' and the Pentagon is reviewing potential dates, Pentagon spokesman Charlie Summers said on Tuesday.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that Trump had asked the Defense Department to "explore" the idea.

"President Trump is incredibly supportive of America's great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe. He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation," CNN quoted Sanders as saying.
