Veterans day parade

The 2018 Washington Veterans Day Parade (colloquially called “Trump’s military parade”) was a planned military parade that would have taken place in Washington, D.C. on 10 November 2018 in honor of the Veterans Day holiday (which will take place on 11 November).

A Government official estimated the cost of the parade between $3 million to $50 million, earlier in 2018. Another suggestion of the cost was closer to $92 million, with at least $50 million being used to cover Pentagon costs for aircraft, equipment, personnel, and other support. This number was refuted by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis who stated; “I’m not dignifying that number ($92 million) with a reply. The $92 million estimate was to be divided between the Defense Department and the Department of Homeland Security, which would have contributed $50 million and $42 million respectively. Still no one knows the real cost of this parade.

Cancellation of parade 2018

On August 17, 2018 U.S. President Donald Trump stated he cancelled the parade due to the “ridiculous” $92 million price tag. He blamed local politicians for the price and suggested hosting another parade in 2019, and ended his tweets with; “Maybe we will do something next year in D.C. when the cost comes WAY DOWN. Now we can buy some more jet fighters!
