Why is Trump holding his parade on Nov. 11th?
November 11th will be the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War One. Shouldn't the parade honor the sacrifice of the military who died in wars, not a draft dodger who claimed to have bone spurs that miraculous healed by itself?

He was impressed with a military parade that was held in France in honor of their president. Unfortunately Trump is delusional and thinks he should be honored by the military.
Perhaps people would have a little respect for him if he took that money and spent it on homeless & sick Veterans (of any of the USA wars).

Because he thinks everything is about him.

To make it look like Trump is honoring veterans. Trump wanted the parade, no one else requested it. The parade will be a big ego trip for him.

Give up the draft dodger BS. Receiving a medical (Trump) or education (Clinton) deferment is NOT dodging. Dodging is leaving the country or going into hiding. ANYONE who received a medical deferment got it because the military doctors granted them one.

I assume you don't know much about military service. There are literally dozens of ailments that cause athletic people to fail a MEPS physical. Bone spurs and flat feet are not issues if you train 6-8 hours a day wearing 30 pounds of football gear. Try training 16-18 hours a day carrying 75-125 pounds of tactical gear. The toll on the body is immense, MOST people cannot pass a military physical. MOST people do not have to explain why the cannot pass a military physical, they just don't pass.

It’s not “his” parade. It’s the American people’s.

True. Maybe he just wants to be strange or something so he can be remembered.

Because he loves attention. Being Commander in Chief feeds his ego. Just like Kim Jung Un.
