When asked whether he would appropriate the money, Jordan said "we'll have that debate" and "whether we need a parade or not, I'll leave that up to the commander-in-chief". For the last two and a half years since the start of his campaign for president, Trump has promoted himself as a man who cares deeply about the United States military and veterans.
"At a time of stress and strain on our military budget, President Trump is proposing a costly parade that would divert needed resources from our military's core missions", Reed said.
No White House official has been in contact with Bowser, she told a reporter Wednesday.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says President Donald Trump's desire for a massive military parade reflects his respect and fondness for the US military. "We'll send them up to the White House for a decision".
While a parade similar to Trump's vision has been uncommon in recent years, the US previously held a national military parade in 1991 to celebrate winning the Gulf War.
US military units often participate in parades on the Fourth of July and other holidays to mark appreciation and remembrance of veterans, but these typically do not include displays of military hardware.

USA military members commonly participate in parades on the Fourth of July and other holidays to mark appreciation and remembrance of military veterans, but these typically do not include gaudy displays of military hardware.
Trump was awestruck by the tableau of uniformed French troops marching down Avenue des Champs-Elysees with military tanks, armored vehicles, gun trucks and carriers-complete with fighter jets flying over the Arc de Triomphe and painting the sky with streaks of blue, white and red smoke for the colors of the French flag.

US Senator Lindsey Graham, a prominent Republican voice on defense matters, said he favored highlighting the country's armed forces but not its weaponry. Sadly, the Giant Tank Parade is canceled.

Gayoom's lawyer and nephew Maumoon Hameed said on Twitter that his uncle had been informed of the imminent transfer by police. Several countries have warned against travel to the country, which depends heavily on tourism, at the peak of the season.
The president has repeatedly mused about how he would like a military parade. He's actually claimed that his experience at an exclusive military boarding school for children of the rich gave him real military experience and it's a sore spot for him. We saw it in Germany in the forties, Bulgaria, other countries throughout the world that live in not so great places with not so great leaders.
According to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, SIPRI, U.S. military spending will be three times that of China and ten times more than Russian Federation.
