Having a military parade is one thing. Most of them do such on military bases, have air shows, and show up for the public.
But what the President is wanting, is a grand military parade, and similar to other countries. However there are a few things that should be noted.
If it were just troops in dress uniforms, that would be one thing, and would be fine, the cost would not be that bad. However, the President is also wanting military hardware as well in this parade, and that is going to make the cost skyrocket. And here is how it breaks down, first there is getting the military equipment there to the city, and the fuel to move it down the road. And as it is military equipment, it will require military troops there to guard said equipment. And that is just the movement and equipment. What also needs to be added into the cost, should also be the repairs that would be required to both public and private property from said military equipment moving through the streets.
So who is going to pay for all of this?

he is now inviting his ...#notmypresident and love to hate Trump anti-fan clubs to riot?
Because that will happen.
Personally I think it is a little bit sad but did you see the "protesters" on his way to the state of the thingy...?
A military parade from Trump for Trump...

is that because it's a slow march to make the spectacle last longer?
I suppose the more militaristic nations do their parades at a faster pace.
