Mil­i­tary pa­rade tab put at $10M-$30M

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - NATION -

2 WASHINGTON >> Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s mil­i­tary pa­rade will not come cheap.

Mick Mul­vaney, the White House bud­get di­rec­tor, es­ti­mated Wed­nes­day that the pub­lic dis­play of Amer­ica’s mil­i­tary might that Trump has called for could cost be­tween $10 mil­lion and $30 mil­lion, and said the govern­ment would have to come up with a way to cover the cost.

Fund­ing for the pa­rade was not in­cluded in the White House’s 2019 bud­get re­quest, which was re­leased Mon­day, be­cause it was a rel­a­tively new idea, Mul­vaney said at a House Bud­get Com­mit­tee hear­ing on Wed­nes­day.
