Trump says he's 'thinking about' attending Russia's May Day parade.

Donald Trump says he's considering attending Russia's May Day parade in 2020.

The president told reporters outside the White House that he was "invited" by Russian President Vladimir Putin and is "thinking about" attending the procession, which commemorates the end of the Second World War with a display of the country's military might.

Not to be confused with May Day parades, the Moscow Victory Day Parade on 9 May 2020 will mark the 75th anniversary of the fall of Nazi Germany on the war's Eastern front.
