Pentagon REJECTS President’s request for huge military-style farewell…

Read Time: 4 minutes

The president wanted his departure from Washington to involve a ‘military-style sendoff and a crowd of supporters,’ a person who has discussed the matter with Trump told CNN.

Two senior Defense officials told Defense One that no military farewell is being planned for the commander in chief.

President Donald Trump’s wants a military-style farewell parade as he exits office, but the Pentagon said it will not participate in any such event
On Wednesday January 20, Trump will vacate the White House and Joe Biden will be inaugurated in a ceremony that has been closed to the public following the storming of the Capitol two weeks ago and subsequent threats made after

Usually, presidents will also engaged in an Armed Forces Farewell tribute before leaving office to thanks those who put their lives on the line to defend the country. Vice President Mike Pence, however, was tasked with this show of appreciation

Trump has often pushed military parades during his presidency as a show of U.S. power. He finally hosted one of these costly parades on Independence Day 2019.

Millions were diverted from other funds to host the ‘Salute to America’ parade two summers ago as tanks rolled through the streets of the nation’s capital and military aircraft participated in a flyover of the National Mall. The events included a speech from Trump and the traditional fireworks show.

The whole ordeal was a massive break in tradition from Washington’s usual annual celebration of U.S. independence.

It isn’t clear if Trump wanted his farewell parade to take place at the White House, Joint Base Andrews or his final destination of Palm Beach – but the issue is moot now that the Pentagon says it won’t participate regardless.

When Trump’s term officially ends at noon on Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day – Wednesday, January 20 – Trump expects to be at his Mar-a-Lago club in South Florida or playing at his nearby golf course.

Trump has still not conceded that he lost the election to Biden, but has repeatedly vowed there will be a ‘peaceful transition of power.’

Ever since Ronald Reagan’s presidency, the Department of Defense has hosted an Armed Forces Farewell tribute as presidents’ terms come to a close. The ceremonies include members of the military getting to meet or see the president in person and usually their commander-in-chief exhibits his appreciation for their commitment and sacrifice.

This president, however, is not participating in any of the traditional end-of-term events.

On Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence delivered remarks to sailors at Naval Air Station Lemoore, and will visit on Sunday the 10th Mountain Division in Fort Drum, New York. On Wednesday, the White House announced Pence’s upcoming plans, claiming his remarks would celebrate ‘the Trump Administration’s historic foreign policy achievements.’

Trump often boasts of his support of Military members

In a show of bitterness, Trump will also not engage in any hand-off rituals that incumbents typically do to welcome newly elected Presidents – such as leaving a letter of advice to the new president or hosting a one-on-one conversation.ADVERTISEMENT

President-elect Biden’s inauguration celebration is being closed to the public because of the chaos at the Capitol on January 6, which left five dead, after Trump riled up his supporters at a rally near the White House.

In the last few weeks, more than 20,000 National Guard troops were deployed to the nation’s capital and will continue patrolling the streets of Washington D.C. until at least inauguration.

The FBI is also tracking several threats of violence, including a rumored plan for thousands of ‘armed patriots’ to descend on the Capitol or White House.
