Clinton Thinks Trump Doesn’t Need A Military Presence To Be Patriotic

To celebrate Fourth of July, President Trump is hosting a military parade through Washington, DC–and many fellow politicians aren’t thrilled about it. Hillary Clinton, Trump’s Democratic opponent in the 2016 election, inferred that it was all about Trump’s ego in a Twitter post.

“We need a strong national defense, but a president shouldn’t need it next to him in a parade to show his patriotism,” Clinton tweeted.

Many criticized the cost of the military parade, which is diverting millions of dollars from the National Park Service to pay for the festivities. Others say it resembles parades in countries ruled by military dictators, like North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. But Trump forged on, hyping the parade on his own Twitter account.

“People are coming from far and wide to join us today and tonight for what is turning out to be one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country, SALUTE TO AMERICA, an all-day event at the Lincoln Memorial, culminating with large scale flyovers of the most modern and advanced aircraft anywhere in the World,” Trump tweeted. “Perhaps even Air Force One will do a low & loud sprint over the crowd. That will start at 6:00 P.M., but be there early. Then, at 9:00 P.M., a great (to put it mildly) fireworks display. I will speak on behalf of our great Country!”
