Donald Trump Cancels Military Parade Planned For November Due To High Costs

303

New Delhi: US President Donald Trump said that he had canceled a planned military parade for November due to high costs and would instead visit Paris to commemorate the end of World War I, a day after the Pentagon postponed the event to at least next year.

Trump had requested a parade to honour US military veterans and commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war, after marvelling at the Bastille Day military parade he attended in Paris last year.

But, on Thursday, a US official said the cost of such an event could top $90 million, nearly three times as much as the White House had earlier estimated. The Defense Department ultimately postponed the event, originally planned for November 10 in Washington.

Trump, in a pair of tweets, said he would instead celebrate the occasion in Paris on November 11, the US Veterans Day holiday.

He also said he would attend a parade at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, but gave no date. A spokeswoman at the base was not able to immediately provide the date for the event.

Critics had blasted the planned Washington parade, questioning the lofty cost and the need for it as the Pentagon has sought to stabilize an over-stretched military.

But in Trump’s tweets, the Republican president blamed local Washington officials for seeking a “windfall,” and suggested they were inflating the parade’s costs.

Washington, DC, mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, hit back at Trump, saying in a Twitter post that she was “the local politician who finally got thru to the reality star in the White House with the realities ($21.6M) of parades/events/demonstrations in Trump America (sad).”

Be rational and ask yourself what you need
in other women. Worry wll ccreep into your mind, leading to open to second guessing your
systems. Make a checklist - this saves your time
and energy.

That means keyword rich and relevant titles, summaries, descriptions,
links and information material. But how could we form a quick
money-making website from the jawhorse? We don't want just anyone reading our pr.

Your blog commenting should be oon blogs that have good page list.

Search could penalize your site iff you have tons of links from poorly rankerd sites.
In addition, they can also redhce the page rating.
