Why isn't Trump going to Arlington or a military cemetary on Memorial Day?

"President Trump will recognize Memorial Day at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Baltimore, the White House confirmed Wednesday. "

Memorial Day is to remember our honored dead. There's no one buried at Fort McHenry.

Oh, here's why:
"Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over airports, it did everything it had to do and at Ft. McHenry under the rocket’s red glare had nothing but victory. When dawn came, the star-spangled banner waved defiant."
-Donald Trump 7/4/19

Yes. Quite the victory. Right after British forces burned Washington to the ground and freely plundered Northern Virginia, all but completely eliminating the American government and sending much of the fledgling nation into chaos and ruin.

If people don't follow health and distancing guidelines, the memory of this year will be that more Americans died than in WWII.

Because he’s a stable genius and plus this way the taxpayers pay for another of his campaign ads.

It's on the way to his golf course in New Jersey.

What is Fort McHenry famous for?
Fort McHenry is primarily known for the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812, when American troops stopped a British invasion. The battle inspired Francis Scott Key to pen what would become the national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner” – originally entitled “Defense of Fort McHenry”.

O say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly you hailed at my awesome hair's last gleaming,
Whose broad pants and small hands, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ratings I watched, were so gallantly rising ?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that TRUMP was still there;
O say does that TRUMP 2020 banner yet wave
O'er the land of the suckers and the mansions of the rich ?

I think the reason he's not going to Arlington is because he DOESN'T CARE about dead veterans.

I never knew, when did that begin?

I don't think he could handle the hill one has to climb to get to the amphitheater.

Our mayor has asked him not to come. Unfortunately, it's a National Park so our mayor can't control whether it opens or not.
