President Trump's Military Parade Could Cost Up To $30 Million

Estimates are coming in for what would be the first military parade in Washington D.C. since the end of the first Gulf War in 1991. Mulvaney said the exact cost would be determined by a number of factors, like how long the parade lasted and what equipment was involved. That's according to a report in the Military Times, which quoted the White House budget director.

The White House said Trump requested the parade out of support for USA service members.

More than 8,000 troops marched down Constitution Avenue as stealth fighter planes soared overhead and tanks and Patriot missile batteries rolled past an estimated 200,000 people. That one cost $12 million.

Officials are reportedly considering staging Trump's parade on Veterans Day, which is November 11.

"We'll continue to work with you folks if we made a decision to push forward", Mulvaney told the lawmakers.

Mulvaney said the administration would have to seek an appropriation from Congress or redirect existing funds to finance the parade. "We've not done much research on it", he added.
