President Trump Seeing Veterans’ Day for Military Parade
President Donald Trump is eyeing Veterans Day for a military parade but says he will scrap the idea if it cannot be done at a “reasonable cost.”
President Trump was not asked to define “reasonable cost” during a telephone interview Saturday night. But White House budget director Mick Mulvaney recently told Congress that a parade could cost between $10 and $30-M.
President Trump says officials are discussing Veterans Day in November as the likely date for the Pennsylvania Avenue parade, although he likes July 4th better.
The President says a parade would be “something great” for the Nation’s spirit.
President Trump got the idea for having a military parade after he attended France’s Bastille Day celebration last year in Paris.
Most like the idea, and some have panned the idea.
