The military parade, proposed by President Donald Trump, to be held on November 10, will cost 12 million US dollars, US officials told CNN.
Trump suggested holding a military parade in the capital after he admired the military parade in Paris. The estimated cost of the parade in the amount of $ 12 million is a “planned figure”, according to CNN, American officials.
The parade, which will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, will include wheeled vehicles, but without tanks, to avoid infrastructure damage, according to the Pentagon memorandum since March. Some troops will take the form of historical periods, and by the end aircraft will also be involved.
The memorandum says that the route of the parade will run from the White House to the Capitol. Trump seized on the idea of a military parade after taking office, an idea that many in the Pentagon resisted, because the US has a tradition of holding grandiose parades after military victories such as World War II and Desert Storm. In addition, many forms and vehicles will be reconstructed at the expense of taxpayers.
