Not one to ever be outdone, President Trump reportedly has instructed Pentagon officials to being planning for a massive military parade to rival the one he witnessed in Paris last year during Bastille Day celebrations.
A senior administration official told NBC News that Trump has “given the directive to begin the planning so the planning has begun.”
Twitter is still kinda going nuts:
If this was all Trump did for the rest of his first term, I would immediately vote for him again.
He has directed the Pentagon to plan a massive military parade!

A #militaryparade will validate the worst traits and instincts of Trump. We’re not North Korea or Russia, Iran or any other dictatorship. The military is not to be symbolized and weaponized for the benefit of one political party. This is yet another step towards dictatorship. pic.twitter.com/NH8o8ZBv7j

Trump wants a Soviet-style military parade, something weak leaders do to try to look strong. https://t.co/HmL7TVGDnV

LEFTISTS: The idea of a #MilitaryParade is extremely offensive and un-American
ALSO LEFTISTS: Let's go march around in vagina costumes wearing pink p***y hats while we call Trump and conservatives a bunch of nasty names!
