The National Park Service will eventually bring-in approximately $2.5m (£2m) to meet the expense of the event.
Mr. Trump tweeted his 4 July observance will be “the show of a lifetime”.
What will befall?
Also with tanks, Mr. Trump’s 4 July bash will highlight a military jet flyover, a widespread fireworks show and a speech by the president at the Lincoln Memorial.
While the shielded vehicles were carried from a railyard in south-eastern Washington DC on Tuesday evening, military officials advised residents not to be terrified.
Army Col Sunset Belinsky addressed a regional News associate that citizens of the capital city “will notice the vehicles move through their neighborhoods, but should not be terrified”.
Moreover, Mr. Col Belinsky didn’t reveal where the tanks to be exhibited on the National Mall in the city centre.
“The Pentagon & our fabulous Military Leaders are excited to be performing this,” Mr. Trump responded in a tweet on Tuesday. “Unbelievable Flyovers & most significant Fireworks!”

The show will be open to the public at free of charge, leaving the ticketed space for VIPs facing the Lincoln Memorial.
