Before meeting with French president Emmanuel Macron on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, President Trump announced he is talking with Chief of Staff John Kelly about hosting a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue on the 4th of July after watching France's Bastille Day parade.

Quote: "It was military might and, I think, a terrific thing for France, for the spirit of France. People don't know what great warriors they are in France, but when you see that and you see all the victories it was a tremendous thing. To a large extent because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4th."

Flashback: Trump asked for military vehicles to partake in his inaugural parade, but that didn't pan out.

About the meeting: Macron mentioned he would like to talk about nuclear proliferation as well as moving forward on the Paris Accord.

Sen. Kamala Harris appealed to Black voters in Georgia on Friday, urging them to "honor the ancestors" by casting ballots, and again calling President Trump a "racist."

Why it matters: The U.S. saw a significant decline in African-American voter turnout between 2012 and 2016, reaching its lowest point since 2000. Higher turnout among Black Americans this year could tip the balance in favor of Democrats in key battleground states, including Georgia.
