Trump's military parade estimated to cost btw $10-$30M

Rapidly becoming the most expensive, emolument evading, first family of nepotism in US history. Virtually every single tweet that Donnie Dinkydigits posted in criticism of his predecessor Obama, he has topped and/or exceeded. This clan of entitled by birthight aristocrats collectively thumb the noses @ protocol, convention, and decorum.

And it's one the US Military does not want to have. These guys pride themselves on being quiet and going about their business without any fanfare.

This is literally the exact opposite of what they want.

Even my really pro Trump family members have been quiet about this. There really is no upside.

As of last November 130 of Trump's appointees were lacking permanent security clearances according to MSNBC.

"White House officials who are listed as not having permanent security clearances as recently as this past November include Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and senior adviser; Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser; Dan Scavino, the president’s director of social media; and Christopher Liddell, assistant to the president for strategic initiatives, according to the documents."

~SNIP~

"One of [Trump’s] central arguments against his Democratic opponent in the 2016 presidential election was that Hillary Clinton’s alleged mishandling of classified information not only disqualified her but was grounds for imprisonment."

Good for the goose, but not the gander, eh Donald?

Probably not in an election year, but depending on the outcome, DC might become host to a military parade in '19.
