Letter: Don’t waste money on parade; use it to help nation’s veterans

Don’t waste money on parade; use it to help nation’s veterans

President Trump, our narcissistic, con man, would-be king, wants to spend several million of our taxpayer dollars to have thousands of our dedicated servicemen and women march by his viewing throne and salute him to inflate his already grotesque ego. Remember that Trump, with his daddy’s help, manufactured a sore heel deferment to avoid serving his country. In his subsequent career, he has never served anyone other than himself.

Those millions would be much better spent helping the Wounded Warriors Project, our Gold Star Families and Mission 22, which assists veterans with critical suicide prevention services.

We Americans should turn our backs on this embarrassment, and help instead those who have served us so nobly. And let the Donald curl up in his bed, eat cheeseburgers and have his staff tell him how he is the greatest president in recent memory.
