Estimated cost of Trump\'s military parade jumps 666%, reports say

The estimated cost of President Donald Trump's military parade jumped $80 million, The Associated Press reported citing an unnamed Pentagon official.

Last month, the Military Times reported that initial estimates of the parade's cost were $12 million. The official says the new projection is $92 million. That represents an increase of 666 percent.

No final plan has been approved and the cost could still change, the official said. The price would depend on the final numbers of troops and type of equipment involved, and how those troops will need to be transported to Washington, such as whether they would need to be moved by train.

In February, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney put the cost at $10 million to $30 million.

The parade is currently planned for Nov.10, the day before Veterans Day.
