    Trump’s ‘marching orders’ to the Pentagon: Plan a grand military parade - The Washington Post https://apple.news/AzLHpkHoPTGefzVyOhpreIA

    After The Washington Post first published this story, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement confirming that plans are underway.
    “President Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe,” Sanders said. “He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation.”

    “The Pentagon also confirmed the plans following The Post’s initial report. “We are aware of the request and are in the process of determining specific details. We will share more information throughout the planning process,” Defense Department spokesman Thomas Crosson said in a statement.”

    I love our military but completely against marching them in a parade like a dictatorship country.Reminds me of NK,China,or Russia propaganda.

    instead of voicing financial concerns or cost, watch how Trump spins the lefts opposition to a parade

    I agree the parade is not necessary

    Especially since, unlike France we don't do it annually
    That said November will be the 100th anniversary of the end of WWIII

    I’m not big on this idea but maybe if they did it on Veterans Day or Memorial Day as a tribute to our Veterans and people who actively serve I would get on board with it.

    I liked the patriotic days of the Reagan years.

    CNN has an AC360? I didn't know that. I haven't had CNN on since Gulf War One.

    Does it have as much firepower as our US AC130????

    The marching band could play a Michael Jackson medley ?
    What do you think?

    Although a military parade would be very impressive, I'm against it. It not only wastes a lot of money but it could also show off some stuff that we really shouldn't be showing to our adversaries. And if we don't show the good stuff, then some people would question whether we actually have it or not. I would rather keep them guessing on what we actually have.
    Then of course, there are the leftists in our country. They would do everything possible to turn it into a negative.
    I don't see where we gain much more than showing ultimate patriotism that will last less than a week with a parade, and I doubt that it's actually worth doing. A military parade reminds me of the wannabe superpowers showing off their strength, and I really think that we are above that.
    But if we do have one, I will be in full support once the decision to have it has been made, because the military has no bigger supporter than myself.

    Yep. Just like with the immigration issue, less than ten years ago Schumer was against the illegals coming here, now he can't get them here fast enough.
    Whatever Trump is for, the dems are suddenly against.

    It's been said of Trump last year that he admires dictators, you may have heard that

    No. We haven't heard that because we aren't stupid enough to watch Morning Schmo and his skanky sidekick.

    Ya, those are the same people who hate our way of life and despise those who have risked their lives to give them the freedom to express their hatred for our way of life.
