President Donald Trump diverted $2.5 million from the National Parks Service to pay for the July 4 parade, which included military tanks and armored vehicles. Do you agree with this?

ABC News has not independently confirmed the report. The National Park Service and Interior Department did not respond to questions about the use of fees, though the park service said the spending for the event will follow Interior Department policies.
