The source is kind of leftist unreliable, but the story is accurate and the general is real AF.

He published this statement on the VoteVets website.

"Donald Trump has continually shown himself to have authoritarian tendencies, and this is just another worrisome example.

“For someone who just declared it was ‘treasonous’ to not applaud him, and for someone who has, in the past, admired tactics of everyone from Saddam Hussein to Vladimir Putin, it is clear that a military parade isn’t about saluting the military – it’s about making a display of the military saluting him.

“The military is not Donald Trump’s to use and abuse in this way,” Eaton’s statement continues. “Our military is the very best in the world – they are not to be reduced to stagecraft to prop up Donald Trump’s image.

“Any commander in chief who respects the traditions of the military would understand that. Unfortunately, we do not have a commander in chief, right now, as much as we have a wannabe banana republic strongman.”

When you have multiple former service men talking about what a stupid Idea this is, I can only imagine that yes, Trump will do it.
