Duckworth Statement on President Trump’s Request for a Military Parade
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] — U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) released the following statement in response to reports that President Trump has requested the Pentagon begin planning for a military parade to be held later this year.
“This parade would not only waste millions of taxpayer dollars, it would also cost our military precious time and resources. Our troops in danger overseas don’t need a show of bravado, they need steady leadership, long-term funding and resources so they can stay safe while protecting and defending our nation.”
