SOT, Jaquie, protester: "What New York would say to the president is 'resign now and then go back to Mar-a-Lago'. But what does Veterans Day mean to me, he [Donald Trump] has completely defiled Veterans Day by trying to wrap himself in the flag and take away from a day that should belong to veterans, he's not a veteran, and so he's so narcissistic that he's tried to make it all about him and that's a crime."

SCRIPT
The annual Veterans Day Parade took place in New York on Monday, with marching bands and veterans on procession.
Some demonstrators protesting US President Donald Trump were present on the sidelines, holding signs calling for his impeachment.
Other attendees, such as Linda Graham, praised Trump, who kicked off the parade with a speech: "He [Trump] supports the veterans, we love him, he is making America great and he is going to keep America great."
This year was the 100th annual Veterans Day Parade in New York.
