Rep. Jim Jordan said that President Donald Trump is considering a military parade because he "loves our military."

"Whether we need a parade or not, I'll leave that up to the commander in chief," the Ohio Republican said Wednesday on CNN's "New Day" program. 

"That's the president's call. What I know about this president… I've had the opportunity to be around him. I wish every American could spend some time with him, and you would see how much he loves our men and women in uniform, how much he loves this great country, how much he loves our military," Jordan said.

"How that's expressed, how that's shown, I'll leave that up to the commander in chief, but if it's a parade, it's a parade," he added.

Retired military officers on Wednesday blasted Trump's call for a parade. Retired Admiral John Kirby told CNN: "This is not about showcasing our military. This is about the president showing off. It's all about his ego. And it's just an inappropriate use of military time, talent, and resources."
