Military parade trump will cost in the range of 10 to 30 million dollars, said Wednesday responsible for the budget of the White house Mick Mulvaney (Mick Mulvaney).

“Preliminary estimates I have seen range from $ 10 million to $ 30 million depending on the duration of the parade,’ said Mulvaney. – It is obvious that time parade is different from the five-hour parade from the point of view of cost, equipment and different things”.

This was the first estimates of the military parade trump planned by the Pentagon this year. Democrats and some Republicans doubt the need for such events, suggesting that it may have an authoritarian form.

A member of the house of representatives Barbara Lee (Barbara Lee) asked Mulvaney:

“I want to ask you about this military parade, which was proposed by the President, a parade similar to those held in authoritarian countries like North Korea”.

Mulvaney said that “we actually were military parades in the country, including in 1990-ies”. Although Mulvaney did not specify what he was talking about. In Washington in 1991, held a parade to celebrate the US victory in the first Gulf war. It was attended by over 8 thousand us troops and helicopters, tanks and fireworks. In 1991, the parade cost about $ 12 million, which is about $ 21 million or $ 22 million in today’s dollars.
