Republican Missouri AG Offers To Host Trump’s Parade

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports:

President Donald Trump faced criticism from former military personnel and veterans’ groups when he said he wanted a military parade, complete with tanks, through the streets of Washington, D.C. But he’s gained some support here in Missouri.

On Monday morning, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley tweeted the military parade should roll through the Show Me State. Hawley is widely considered to be the Republican favorite to take on Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., in the 2018 elections, though rumors of buyer’s remorse have been circulating lately.

Hawley first appeared on JMG in 2015 when he proposed the legalization of anti-LGBT discrimination even though such discrimination is already legal in Missouri because no protections exist in state law.
