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.

Driving the news: On Wednesday, both companies said that if a court doesn’t overturn or further pause a new ruling forcing them to reclassify California drivers as employees, they’ll suspend their services in the state until November’s election, when voters could potentially exempt them by passing a ballot measure.

President Trump announced a "historic" deal Thursday which will see Israel and the UAE open full diplomatic relations and Israel suspend its annexation plans in the West Bank.

Why it matters: This is a major breakthrough for Israel, which lacks diplomatic recognition in many Middle Eastern countries but has been steadily improving relations in the Gulf, largely due to mutual antipathy toward Iran.
