First reported by the Washington Post and later confirmed by NBC and ABC, President Trump has tasked the Pentagon with planning a parade designed to show off the US armed forces. The cost of the would-be parade is estimated to be in the millions.
Apparently, Trump was inspired by France's Bastille Day celebrations.
The Guardian writes:
"The White House confirmed that an event is in the works, though it did not offer further details. 'President Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe,' press secretary Sarah Sanders said. 'He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation.'"
How do you feel about this?
