US military parade ordered by Trump postponed to 2019

Washington, A military parade ordered by US President Donald Trump for later this year has been postponed until at least 2019, a defense official said Thursday.

“The Department of Defense and White House have been planning a parade to honor America’s military veterans and commemorate the centennial of World War I,” Pentagon spokesman Colonel Rob Manning said in a statement.

“We originally targeted November 10, 2018 for this event but have now agreed to explore opportunities in 2019,” he added.

The parade had been planned for the Veterans Day weekend, and was expected to include a large show of air power.
