Posted on 11/07/2019 7:21:33 AM PST by caww
Veterans have invited the sitting president to attend the event every year for 25 years, and Trump is the first to accept the invitation.........Trumps support for the parade goes back decades, as in the 1990s he personally offered financial support to save it from financial insolvency.
In 1993, almost 25 years ago, the parade was in difficult financial straits, and the president of the United Statesthen [known as] The Donaldno questions asked, just said, Yes, I will do it.
He wrote a ginormous check, saved the Veterans Day Parade. He was honored at the Pentagon way back then, White added.
President Donald Trump will be opening New York City Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11 with a speech, making history as the first time a sitting president has accepted an invitation to attend the annual event.
Trump will open the 100th edition of the parade with a speech addressing veterans and military officials at Madison Square Park in Manhattan on Monday, the White House confirmed on Nov. 6....After his tribute, Trump will then lay a wreath at the Eternal Light Memorial in the park.
The parade, which begins at noon, is expected to see more than 25,000 parade participants march along Fifth Avenue. Veterans, military groups, and their supporters will be among the participants.

Good for him
Those who are so inclined and not doing so already, please pray for the safety and protection of President Trump.
And that all efforts against him fail.
Why is he the first? That strikes me as odd.
God Bless him and Protect him.
Notice they’ve asked Presidents for the last 25 years. That would include Clinton, W, and Obama. Not surprising.
Reagan would have gone in a heartbeat.
Reagan, the best President of the 20th Century, Trump the best President of the 21st Century. Can’t imagine any better.
Two of the best Presidents of all time.
We pray EVERYDAY for him...
It’s strictly a NY veteran parade, not national and I don’t know if it’s even televised.
If the same God who protected Daniel in the lion’s den fails to protect Trump in this nest of vipers, the rest of the world will conclude he’s lost his mojo, and is no longer worthy of worship.
Bad for us, cosmically empowering for the one who fell like lightening from Heaven, and all his minions.
If he’s heading the parade, they’d better have him tucked inside that bulletproof presidential limo. Sadly, New York is too unsafe.
Prayers for his safety. I always worry about him being out in public crowds.
I don’t know but I don’t like it.
I pray for my President every day, for the Good Lord to watch over and protect him.
While the Secret Service has done a fine job so far, I would love to see a POTUS MOBILE like the POPE has, just to make certain nothing unspeakable happens.
I still get chills remembering how somebody nearly climbed on the stage to attack Trump in Dayton, Ohio, and stormed the podium in Nevada. I think there was another frightening incident in Nevada as well.
PRAY for our awesome Commander-in-Chief.
He is doing so much for all of us—and we desperately need him to remain in charge for another five years to KAG!!!
I ordered some Trump Christmas wrapping paper. Can’t wait to use it on presents to my liberal relatives.
I looked but there’s no Joe Biden wrapping paper.
Absolutely!! Well said and right on.
