Trump military parade plans unravel over costs

The $92 million number came from a CNBC report released yesterday, which said the Pentagon required $50 million to fund the parade, while Homeland Security required $42 million.

The cancellation of those drills, like Trump's demand for a parade, initially caught the Defense Department unawares.

Instead of a parade, Trump will attend an event at Andrews Air Force Base on another day. I would discount that, and anybody who said (that number), I'll nearly guarantee you one thing: They probably said, 'I need to stay anonymous'. "I'll just leave it at that".

Late Thursday, the Pentagon said the controversial event, originally scheduled for November 10 in Washington, was being pushed back to a possible date in 2019. The Pentagon later said the Korea drills would have cost US$14 million.

What I find incredible here is that Trump tried to shame Bowser by claiming she was price-gouging his parade, but the estimate she cites is a fraction of what the event was actually projected to cost.

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

The parade was expected to include troops from all five armed services - the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard - as well as units in period uniforms representing earlier times in the nation's history. But officials said the estimates were still preliminary and so were not submitted to Mattis or Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The November parade was supposed to go from the Capitol to the White House, passing by the Trump International Hotel en route.

"It's pretty clear that the president is upset about the parade", she continued, "and it appears that he didn't want to take on his own agencies ... or the Pentagon, so he decided that we were a good target". "Maybe we will do something next year in D.C. when the cost comes WAY DOWN". (The actual cost of military medical care specifically for trans troops is around $2.4 to $8.4 million annually-way less than a parade.) Nope.

The American Legion has come out against President Trump's plans to hold a military parade, saying that while the group appreciates Trump's support for troops, the money would be better spent on veterans until all troops return from overseas. As the invited guest of French President Emmanuel Macron, Trump watched enthusiastically from a reviewing stand as the French military showcased its tanks and fighter jets, including many US-made planes, along the famed Champs- Elysees.
