    Also according to the part I quoted. Please do not pretend I was attempting to mislead you. Three meals per day for two weeks for every homeless veteran is a substantial amount of food, and I do not see why any of them should have to miss any meal because Trump had a random parade for no other reason than to feed his ego.

    Not relevant. Trump is not spending his own money, here.

    This a combination of Trump feeding his ego and his love of authoritarianism.

    Trump spoke about his vision of military parades in vague terms, suggesting it was something he might oversee in the future. But according to several sources involved in his inaugural preparations, Trump has endeavored to ensure that his first day as commander-in-chief is marked by an unusual display of heavy military equipment.

    During the preparation for Friday’s transfer-of-power, a member of Trump’s transition team floated the idea of including tanks and missile launchers in the inaugural parade, a source involved in inaugural planning told The Huffington Post. “They were legit thinking Red Square/North Korea-style parade,” the source said, referring to massive military parades in Moscow and Pyongyang, typically seen as an aggressive display of muscle-flexing.

    He thinks it makes him look strong, but it will do the opposite in the eyes of the rest of the world.

    So why does he not say "let's put it in the VA budget"?

    ďI stand with Sen. Schumer in his call for a parade to honor our veteran heroes, and New York City would be proud to host this important event,Ē

    But of course when Trump proposes one it's a huge ego-driven waste of money and we're on our way to a dictatorship.

    Is it money that could be better spent on something else? Probably. But I can think of a lot worse ways to waste our money than honoring our brave men and women who give their lives defending our country. So on my list of things to be upset over - this isn't exactly high on my list.
    Just like a good little Trumpanzee.

    President Donald Trump's military parade is set to kick off on Veterans Day, but at a cost that even conservative estimates show could feed every homeless veteran for at least two weeks, a Newsweek analysis found.



    Trump is more interested in his ego than actually helping anyone (other than himself). Why does anyone think this is a good idea?




    The parade is a dumb idea, that said, do these figures take in the logistics and locating all of these hungry veterans and bringing them this food for 44.5 days?
