Veterans' parade? No, it's Trump's parade

If President Donald Trump can solicit $30 million or more from the Pentagon for a parade, why not use that for veterans in VA hospitals?

Use it for more doctors and nurses so that our veterans are not put on waiting lists. I’m sure the veterans, who have many medical problems, and their families would appreciate that.

Use it to shelter our homeless veterans.

The parade will last a short time; veterans’ problems last for years.

The parade is only for Trump.

He wants to be able to stand up and give a thumb’s up and clap for himself using our tax money.
