President Donald Trump will be opening New York City Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11 with a speech, making history as the first time a sitting president has accepted an invitation to attend the annual event.

Trump will open the 100th edition of the parade with a speech addressing veterans and military officials at Madison Square Park in Manhattan on Monday, the White House confirmed on Nov. 6.

After his tribute, Trump will then lay a wreath at the Eternal Light Memorial in the park.

Doug McGowan, chairman of the United War Veterans Council, which hosts the annual parade, made an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday to announce the news.
“I am proud to announce—honored to announce—that the commander-in-chief has accepted our invitation and will be leading the New York City Veterans Day Parade, the centennial, this year,” McGowan said.
