We asked, you voted: 89 percent said no to Trump?s military parade
By: Tara Copp 3 days ago
As the Pentagon continues to work on parade options to present to
President Donald Trump, an overwhelming number of Military Times
readers have weighed in: Don?t have one.
The informal poll was launched Wednesday after news reports that Trump
had requested a military parade and that the Pentagon was working
on parade options for him.
As of Thursday afternoon, more than 51,000 readers had responded. The
majority, 89 percent, responded ?No, It?s a waste of money and troops
are too busy.?
The other 11 percent responded ?Yes, it?s a great opportunity to show
off U.S. military might.?
On Thursday, Pentagon press secretary Dana White said any parade plans
were in the very beginning stages, and that the Pentagon had tapped the
Army to lead the effort.
?We are looking at several different options right now,? White said.
?The Army is the executive agent. But we don?t have those options yet.
Its still in nascent stages and when we have those options we?ll
provide that to the White House and the president will decide.?
