[Ed. – Have been meh all along about the parade. It’s ridiculous to depict it as a gesture of creepy nativism, considering that there have been military parades in Washington, D.C. on numerous occasions in the past, under presidents of both parties. But I don’t care if we have one. If we do, I’ll watch and enjoy it. The media, of course, are at pains to showcase this in a negative light. I simply don’t accept their narratives anymore.]
The multimillion-dollar military parade through the nation’s capital requested by President Donald Trump has been delayed until 2019, a Defense Department spokesman said Thursday.
“The Department of Defense and White House have been planning a parade to honor America’s military veterans and commemorate the centennial of World War I,” said Col. Rob Manning. “We originally targeted November 10, 2018 for this event but have now agreed to explore opportunities in 2019.”
Earlier Thursday, a defense official told NBC News that the upper estimate of the cost of the parade was $92 million, a figure first reported by CNBC.
