President Trump is unveiling his long-planned "Salute to America" tonight, a an Independence Day event which will include a presidential speech, a military parade, and what promises to be an impressive fireworks display donated by the country's two largest pyrotechnics companies.
And while we all know Trump loves nothing more than to take shots at political enemies when he's got the stage, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told Fox News on Tuesday that "The president is not going to get political."
The "Salute to America" will include flyovers by the US Navy's Blue Angels and an Air Force One jet. Trump reportedly pushed for the inclusion of an F-35 stealth fighter and a Marine One helicopter, according to the Washington Post.
The space immediately around the Lincoln Memorial has been reserved for VIPs and White House guests only, which will include members of the military, government employees, and friends and family of the administration. Up to a dozen top Pentagon officials will attend according to the Defense Department, which was provided 5,000 tickets according to The Hill.
