Trump Slammed on Twitter for Proposed Military Parade: ‘Repulsive Tinpot Strongman Bullsh*t’

After a Washington Post report detailed Donald Trump’s plan to make White House and Pentagon officials carry out a massive military parade in Washington, D.C., pundits and journalists took to Twitter to mock the idea as ridiculous or slam it as authoritarian.

“The president wants to do something that highlights the service and sacrifice of the military and have a unifying moment for the country,” a White House official said regarding the plan

While Trump has proposed such ideas in the past — specifically while he met with French President Emmanuel Macron — this appears to be the first time the Pentagon actually looks to carry out the event.

Nothing official has been set in motion yet, but many media figures expressed concern and anger over even the notion of such a move from the White House:
