President Donald Trump on Saturday night said he is hopeful that a military parade “with a lot of plane flyovers” can be staged in Washington on Veterans Day but acknowledged that the expense could be a concern.
“We’ll see if we can do it at a reasonable cost, and if we can’t, we won’t do it, but the generals would love to do it, I can tell you, and so would I,” Trump said during a call into a Fox News television show. “I think it’s great for our country.”
The parade Trump envisions would cost between $10 million and $30 million, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said earlier this month.
