The event, which was originally scheduled for the day before Veterans Day has now been postponed to an unknown date in the year 2019, a spokesman for the Pentagon said in a statement Thursday.

The Pentagon did not offer a reason for the delay.

But the cost and the logistics were probably factors. Over the winter, the President, the budget Director said the cost would be between $10 and $30 million Since that time, the sky estimates shot up to upwards of $90 million.

While Trump has planned cross-party criticism for the parade, the Usama bin Laden slayer, Rob O’neill once tweeted that a “military parade in the third world is bulls – – -” trump ” accused on Friday, the District of Columbia leaders are trying to milk the Federal government for cash.

He would probably be able to buy many jet fighters with the money. A single F-35 fighter jet runs just under $ 100 million for the cheapest version.

But the estimates for a DC military parade, are still out of focus. Minister of defense of Jim Mattis controversial reported estimate of The Associated Press of around 90 million US dollars.

And DC mayor Muriel Bowser, hit back at Trump, threw a different picture, although it is not clear whether this includes direct Pentagon the costs for equipment and personnel.

“Yup, I’m Muriel Bowser, mayor of Washington DC, the local politicians, you tweeted finally to the reality star in the White house with the realities of ($21.6 M) of parades/events/demonstrations in Trump America (sad),”.
