President Donald Trump said Friday he’s considering accepting Vladimir Putin’s invitation to attend Russia’s May Day parade, a military event held in Moscow commemorating the capitulation of Nazi Germany.
“President Putin invited me,” Trump told reporters on the White House lawn. “It’s a very big deal, celebrating the end of the war, etc., etc. A very big deal. I appreciate the invitation.”
Trump said his only hesitation in attending is that the parade falls during a pivotal time in the 2020 campaign.

“It is in the middle of our political season, so I will see if I can do it, but I would love to go if I could,” he concluded.
May Day is not only a flex of Russian military might, but also a show of support for workers’ rights and communism, the latter being a topic Trump has vociferously opposed.
Does anybody seriously doubt whether or not Trump is going?
Of course he’s going!
This is a chance to see a military parade next to his best buddy in the place that elected him president.
How could he possibly skip it?
