“Being a great president has to do with a lot of things, but one of them is being a great cheerleader for the country,” Trump told the Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty, who asked the president-elect about how “greatness” can be measured. “And we’re going to show the people as we build up our military, we’re going to display our military. That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. That military may be flying over New York City and Washington, D.C., for parades. I mean, we’re going to be showing our military,” he added.

Trump responded by citing the sort of spectacles that were commonplace in autocracies like Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia — military parades.
