President Donald Trump has garnered quite a bit of criticism over his request for a military parade, but his wish isn't entirely unprecedented.
It was reported this week that Trump expressed during a Jan. 18 meeting his desire for a military parade. His request was heard by top generals as a presidential directive, so the Pentagon has started exploring possible dates for the event, according to NBC News.
In 2014, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) also called for a military parade, though there were some differences between then and now. While the president has reportedly asked for just a general parade, Schumer's request was much more like the 1991 parade that took place under then-President George H.W. Bush.
