President Donald Trump says he will give an address at "one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C." this July 4.

A planned event "will be called 'A Salute To America', the President tweeted Sunday morning, "and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial."

Trump's tweet said the event will include fireworks and entertainment, along with "an address by your favorite President, me!"

The President did not say if this would include a military parade, which he planned but canceled in 2018, citing a high cost.

Washington D.C. already celebrates Independence Day annually with fireworks on the National Mall and a parade on Constitution Avenue.
