A shamed Trump cancels HIS parade altogether…
Will attend traditional ones….
Maybe the Pentagon can wait him out of it….
If the Democrats take over the House?
They might not approve the money , instead use it for something more useful than stroking Trump’s ego using taxpayers money (Especially before the MidTerm elections, eh?)….
The Defense Department said Thursday that the Veterans Day military parade ordered up by President Donald Trump won’t happen in 2018.
Col. Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, said the military and the White House “have now agreed to explore opportunities in 2019.”
The announcement came several hours after The Associated Press reported that the parade would cost about $92 million, according to U.S. officials citing preliminary estimates more than three times the price first suggested by the White House.
According to the officials, roughly $50 million would cover Pentagon costs for aircraft, equipment, personnel and other support for the November parade in Washington. The remainder would be borne by other agencies and largely involve security costs. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss early planning estimates that have not yet been finalized or released publicly.
Officials said the plans had not yet been approved by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.
The parade’s cost has become a politically charged issue….
