All the crap talking by the Democrats against our president I'm 100% behind a show of force to the world. The Democrats want to play trump.off as a sh^# talker with no balls.

And you ask why the democrats are against this showcase of bullcrap which no other president before had felt necessary to have...
Sure, ask away. There are good answers you do not want to hear.
Most recently, in 1991 more than 8,000 troops marched down Washington D.C.'s Constitution Avenue in a victory parade celebrating the end of the Persian Gulf War. Stealth fighter planes passed overhead while tanks and Patriot missiles rolled by a crowd of 200,000, according to William J. Eaton and Beth Hawkins of the Los Angeles Times. The attendance was below the 1 million-plus spectators predicted to turn out to view the $12 million event. But by that evening's fireworks display, the turnout swelled to 800,000.
so no where near those levels and hey least hes not bringing nuclear cannons lol
The inauguration of President John F. Kennedy in 1961 included a parade featuring dozens of missiles as well as soldiers and sailors aboard Navy boats towed along Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Nicole Chavez for CNN. President Dwight Eisenhower's 1953 inaugural parade included 22,000 military service members. The marchers were joined by a cannon capable of firing a nuclear warhead. It was "the most elaborate inaugural pageant every held," according to the Eisenhower Presidential Library & Museum. When World War II still raged, more than 30,000 men and women marched down Fifth Avenue in New York City for Army Day Parade in 1942, an occurrence The New York Times heralded as the "first big military display" of the war. Victory parades also celebrated the war's end, including a display led by the 82nd Airborne Division under General James M. Gavin down the Fifth Avenue in New York City.

How many times will Trump blame "Democrats" in his speech? Maybe he'll surprise us and not include any of the usual toxic partisan rhetoric. I won't hold my breath though.
And...you live in Germany so your take on the situation is invalid! P E R I O D

It's funny how spending a ton of money so Trump can take part in a pissing contest is no big deal but forgiving student debt, which will ultimately help the economy, is the worst thing in the world.
