President Donald Trump is promising military tanks along with “Incredible Flyovers & biggest ever Fireworks!” for the Fourth of July in Washington. But the District of Columbia’s government’s says “Tanks, but no tanks.” Others say Trump will politicize the festivities.

Trump said Monday that tanks will be part of a special event he’s headlining Thursday to honor the military. An Associated Press photographer found at least two tanks and other military vehicles on flatcars in a railyard in southeast Washington.
