Before Donald Trump had ever laid foot within the Oval Office, the American people already explicitly understood the sort of radical economic change that was on the horizon.
We were electing one of the world’s boldest and most iconic businessmen to arguably the most powerful office in all of the world…How else did we think things were going to go? This is a man who turned an inheritance into an empire in the course of mere decades, and a political team that just took down long-time Washington insider and the Obama-anointed Hillary Clinton. What was left to prove, other than truly making America great again?.
One of Donald Trump’s first true forays into saving Americans money came early in his political path when the Commander in Chief made good on his promise to mitigate the exorbitant costs of replacing Air Force One by negotiating directly with Boeing themselves.
Now, Trump has made yet another concession to the cost cabal, axing a proposed military parade because it would simply cost too much money.
President Donald Trump said he canceled his proposed military parade on Friday, blaming greedy local officials for driving up the costs.
“The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “When asked to give us a price for holding a great celebratory military parade, they wanted a number so ridiculously high that I canceled it.”
Trump said that he would go the “parade” at Andrews Air Force Base, presumably referring to the annual air show in Maryland as well as the parade in Paris, held on November 11th to commemorate the end of World War I.
“Maybe we will do something next year in D.C. when the cost comes WAY DOWN,” he wrote.
When was the last time you saw a rich democrat looking out for your tax dollars? (I’m not holding my breath for an answer on that one).
