Trump’s Military Parade Postponed Amid Rising Costs
Consider it rained on. The military parade requested by President Trump to honor veterans and commemorate the 100th anniversary of WWI’s end is being postponed at least until 2019, according to the Defense Department. The decision followed new cost estimates three times higher than those stated earlier by the White House. Planned for November, the parade’s now expected to cost $92 million — up from earlier figures echoing the cost of 1991’s Persian Gulf War victory parade. Trump was reportedly inspired by Bastille Day celebrations he attended in Paris last year.
