That is set to change this coming, American Independence Day, when, on demand and at the orders of President, the U.S. military will march down Pennsylvania Avenue in a parade expected to surpass France's famed Bastille Day march. But White House legislative director Marc Short shot back on MSNBC: "I'm not sure honoring the military is a waste of money". "As far as the parade goes again, the president's respect, his fondness for the military, I think is reflected in him asking for these options", Mattis told reporters.
U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the Pentagon is putting together options for a military parade President Donald Trump has requested after attending a similar display in France.
We fervently hope the White House will announce, as it often does after the president is mocked or a childish idea is leaked to the press, that this is all "fake news" - or better, a joke.
On "The Daily Briefing", Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin said the idea came to Trump after he visited France last summer for Bastille Day, witnessing a grand military parade down the Champs-Élysées.
"It's really a waste of money, and I think everyone should be offended by his need to always be showy.it's not our style, it's not the way we do business".
There were also suggestions on Twitter that the Mayor of Washington DC, which is a 90 percent Democrat-leaning city, could deny the Pentagon a parade permit.
"We have avoided doing this kind of display, in part to emphasize that contrast because this has been so commonplace in authoritarian countries", said Julian Zelizer, a presidential historian at Princeton University. But even if Trump did not require Americans to foot the bill and instead relied on wealthy donors, critics are bound to ask why the president is choosing to fund pageantry instead of areas that could tangibly improve the lives of veterans. The last major parade in Washington took place in 1991 after the Gulf War.
"I trust President Trump, Defense Department, Secretary Mattis to do it in the right way, and do it in a way that makes sense and is cost effective", Havens said.
