President Donald Trump’s military parade this fall will reportedly cost an estimated $92 million, which is about $80 million more than previous projections. CNBC reports the figure includes $50 million from the Pentagon and $42 million from agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security. It also covers “security, transportation of parade assets, aircraft, as well as temporary duty” for troops. The Nov. 10 parade is reportedly slated to include eight tanks, armored vehicles, and flyovers with helicopters, fighter jets, transport aircraft, and historic military planes. Soldiers will wear uniforms that represent “past, present, and future forces,” according to the report. A projection last month put the cost at $12 million. The U.S. has not hosted a military parade since 1991 after Operation Desert Storm, and that one cost $8 million. The president recently said he wanted to “try to top” the French military parade he witnessed last September.
