It is no secret that President Donald Trump is a strong supporter of the U.S. military and has prioritized them throughout the duration of his presidency. In recent days, it was revealed that President Trump is proposing a military parade to honor troops and veterans.

According to the New York Times, a celebration like this has not been done in America since 1991 under former president George H. W. Bush. Trump’s military parade idea has received major criticism from a number of politicians and mainstream media hosts in the sense that it would be a “waste of money.”

CNN, “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, and ABC’s “The View” mocked the President’s idea, reported Fox News. However, Trump has also received support from Fox contributors and members of his administration.

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was one of several people who condemned the potential military parade. On Thursday morning, the ex-White House employee expressed his views on the situation via social media.

Scaramucci stated, “I really hope we are not having a military parade...We should honor and support our veterans all the time, but there are more productive ways to do that.”

“[President Trump] has been laser-focused on fixing the broken VA healthcare system and getting veterans greater access to mental health services,” he said. “That’s where resources should be focused going forward.”
