1991 military parade in Washington

It looks like President Trump is going to get the Veterans Day parade he wants. But it will cost about $92 million.

Yep, $92 million.

According to Reuters, "In February, Trump asked the Pentagon to explore a parade in celebration of American troops, after the Republican president marveled at the Bastille Day military parade he attended in Paris last year. Earlier this year, the White House budget chief said the parade would cost U.S. taxpayers between $10 million and $30 million."

But D.C. officials now say that figure is $92 million. Which means Trump's parade is over budget by as much as $80 million.

At that cost, it better be one fine parade.
