Trump hails US military in 4th of July address

President Donald Trump has hailed the “brave men and women” of the US military during a speech at a controversial Independence Day event. The “Salute to America” event featured military flyovers and fireworks. Opponents accused Trump of wasting money and politicising the holiday ahead of his re-election campaign.

The Pentagon has not revealed the cost of the extravaganza, which many believe was inspired by Trump’s visit to a Bastille Day parade hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron in 2017. Some reports say the National Park Service diverted nearly $2.5m to cover the cost.
