Donald Trump may attend Russia’s Victory Day parade next year in May

Trump says he’s considering attending Russia’s Victory Day events in May

U.S. President Donald Trump says he's weighing up an invitation from Russian President Vladimir Putin to attend the May 9 Victory Day parade in Moscow next year.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was barred on Monday from running in next year's presidential election after officials ruled he was ineligible to take part due to a suspended prison sentence he says was trumped up.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said that in June President Putin had invited Trump to attend the Victory Day military parade in Moscow.

"It is in the middle of our campaign season, but I will certainly think about it", Xinhua news agency quoted Trump as saying to the media on Friday. "I am thinking about it", Trump told reporters at an event, as quoted by CNN. But I would love to go if I could."George W. Bush was the last US president to attend the parade, in 2005, while President Bill Clinton attended 10 years before.Trump has in the past expressed affection for displays of military might".

The comments, which seemed created to help Trump stay in Putin's good graces, drew a rapid clap-back from Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris.

The 2020 events will mark the 75th anniversary of the 1945 Allied victory over Nazi Germany and will likely have more pomp than in recent years.
