President Donald Trump has always supported the United States military. The president has been very generous with veterans over the past.

UPI reported in 1995 how Trump was credited with ‘saving’ the New York Veterans Day Parade. The parade that year was marking the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II.
Police estimated 500,000 people attended the largest military parade ever held in New York. Organizers, who placed the turnout at closer to a million, said the parade would not have been a success if it hadn’t been for real estate developer Donald Trump, who contributed $200,000 and raised another $300,000.
“Donald Trump saved the parade,” said parade director Tom Fox, himself a Vietnam veteran. “We had asked for donations from 200 corporations, and none of them came through,” he said.
“This donation is the single most important thing I’ve ever done,” said a beaming Trump. “This is more important than all of my buildings and my casinos. This is my way of saying thank you to all the men an women in the armed services who have made it possible for me to become a success. Without them freedom and liberty would be gone.”
Last week the Trump administration announced they would ask the military to plan a great military parade in Washington DC.
Democrats were disgusted.
On Wednesday NBC News far left reporter Hallie Jackson asked Secretary Mattis if it was really wise to spend money on a military parade.
It is interesting that these are the same hacks who said nothing when Barack Obama doubled the national debt to nearly $20 trillion.
Hallie Jackson: To follow up on Catherine’s question, You just laid out the argument to fulling funding the military, why you think every dollar counts. So why divert time, energy, financial resources to the planning of a parade as the president has asked?
