Donald Trump demands his own military parade

Trump tells Pentagon to plan military parade in Washington

The White House confirmed Tuesday that Trump had asked the Pentagon about such an event, which drew instant ridicule from his critics. "'This is being worked at the highest levels of the military'".

"I don't know", co-host Brian Kilmeade said Wednesday.

"What an absurd waste of money!"

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" namesake Joe Scarborough repeated that somebody had better say "no" to Trump's idea, while the panel on ABC's "The View" mocked it relentlessly.

"Most of the reasons why Trump's idea of huge military parade is a awful one are immediately obvious". She said, "You think every dollar counts, so why divert time, energy and financial resources to the planning of a parade as the president has asked?"

This is not a club Americans should want their country to join.

The Pentagon is reportedly eyeing holding the parade on Veterans Day, which this year coincides with the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. "This would only be about feeding one man's ego". A parade will not alter that perception.

And at least one veterans group is already anxious.

Lessard said, however, he has questions about cost and logistics, and added, "I hope it is not a show of force, rather to represent the military and the sacrifices they have made". Any commander in chief who respects the traditions of the military would understand that.

"While the District of Columbia, as the nation's capital, is proud to host grand federal celebrations, such as the inauguration, we will fight a shutdown of our city that simply assuages Trump's desire to brag and boast in a series of tweets".

Despite these critiques, the White House is shrugging off concerns, noting that the affair is a celebration of our military and Trump's support of them and an opportunity for Americans to "show their appreciation", in the words of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The Democratic side of the aisle has been a touch more fiery in their rejections of Trump's plan. When it comes to issues related to physical and mental health, homelessness, unemployment and sexual abuse, advocates say the military is often underfunded and undersupported. "Permanently." But officials admit that if the White House wants to go ahead, the city can not stop it.

The president has more than a few hurdles to jump to get the project on the move.

According to the Post, Trump was inspired by a Bastille Day parade he saw in France and has requested one just like it.

"In the meantime, we do know that, just like the wall, he will have to pay for it", she said, referring to Mr Trump's proposed border wall between the USA and Mexico.

There's no polling showing what service members want most from their president, but the likelihood of a parade being at the top of the list is low.
