  • Military parade requested by Trump initially estimated to cost $12M, official says

The number is only an estimate and could change based on the size and scope of the "military-themed Veterans Day Parade", the official added.

President Donald Trump's upcoming military parade is expected to cost $12 million, a USA official told ABC News.

CNN quoted three officials at the Defense Department as confirming the cost, which they termed "a planning figure".

'We save a fortune by not doing war games, as long as we are negotiating in good faith - which both sides are!' Trump tweeted in June after the meeting.

Pentagon spokesman Col. Rob Manning told reporters earlier this month that the now-canceled U.S.

He said: "We have time in these negotiations". "We have time, we have changed tact once and we can change again", he said. Farage described it as a well delivered speech but added: "it is hopeless to expect Mrs May to deliver on any of it".

The parade was initially set for November 11, but was changed to accommodate global celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, according to The Military Times.

The cost estimate falls roughly in line with the canceled US military "war game" with South Korea, which was estimated to cost around $14 million - a cost Trump said was "tremendously expensive". According to a memo from Gen. Joseph Dunford, the parade will stretch from the White House to the Capitol and will feature "a heavy air component at the end of the parade".

Trump said in February that he is willing to give up his plans for a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue if it exceeds a 'reasonable cost'.

Trump has been wishing to stage a military parade in Washington ever since visiting France past year, where he attended Bastille Day celebrations and was feted with a military parade along the Champs-Élysées and dinner at the Eiffel Tower.
