WASHINGTON – The White House is pushing forward with the idea of throwing a grand parade to honor the AMERICAN armed forces, brushing aside Democratic criticism.
In response to Sen. Dick Durbin’s comment that such a parade would be a “fantastic waste of money,” the White House legislative director Marc Short tells MSNBC: “I don’t know in honor of the army is a waste of money.”
The brief says that it is still too early to know how much the parade would cost.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed Trump’s request for a parade on Tuesday. She says Trump wants the Pentagon to “explore a feast”, which make it possible for the Americans to show appreciation for the military.
A spokesman of the Pentagon, Charlie Summers, says Pentagon officials are aware of the request and “looking for opportunities.”
