Trump's military parade to cost $80M more than initial estimate: report

President Trump's planned military parade in Washington, D.C., is reportedly estimated to cost $92 million, $80 million more than was initially thought.

CNBC reported Thursday that the Department of Defense's updated cost estimates includes $50 million from the Pentagon and $42 million from interagency partners, including the Department of Homeland Security.

The development comes about a month after CNN, citing three U.S defense officials, reported that the parade would cost close to $12 million.

The soaring costs will fuel opposition to the parade from Democrats and some Republicans, who fear the display, planned for Nov. 10, may look "totalitarian" as it winds its way through the streets of D.C.
