WASHINGTON — The grand military parade that President Donald Trump wants to hold in the nation’s capital in November is now expected to cost $92 million — $80 million more than the original estimate.

According to a report by CNBC, the Department of Defense now assesses that the parade will cost significantly more, including $50 million from DOD and $42 million from interagency partners. The original cost estimates were in the realm of $12 million.

A massive parade down the streets of Washington is an expensive endeavor, which would include a large-scale security operation on top of the other costs to put it on this fall.
