"Three years from now, the United States will celebrate the biggest and most important milestone in our country's history—250 years of American independence," Trump wrote on Truth Social. "That's why as a nation we should be preparing for the most spectacular birthday party. We want to make it the best of all time."
And Trump's campaign said in a news release that the former commander-in-chief will hold a White House task force known as the "Salute to America 250" to hold anniversary celebrations across the United States between Memorial Day 2025 and July 4, 2026.
"I will work with all 50 governors, Republican and Democrat alike, to create the Great American State Fair, a unique one-year exhibition featuring pavilions from all 50 states," he said in a video, proposing a "legendary," special "one-time festival" in Iowa.
"And finally, and most importantly, I will ask America's great religious communities to pray for our nation and our people as we prepare for this momentous occasion," Trump also remarked. "America has been a country sustained and strengthened by prayer and by our communities of faith as we chart a course toward the next 250 years. Let us come together and rededicate ourselves as one nation under God."
Other initiatives include the Patriot Games, an Olympic-style event for high school athletes, and the re-issuance of an executive order to restore the Trump-era National Garden of American Heroes that was ultimately blocked by President Joe Biden. That park would have honored great Americans and historical figures, Trump has said.
