Pentagon puts off military parade until 2019

Trump's military parade is estimated to cost $92 million – $80 million more than earlier estimate

President Trump has long sought a military parade, but it won't be happening in 2018.

"We originally targeted November 10, 2018 for this event but have now agreed to explore opportunities in 2019", he added.

The Republican president had requested a parade to honour USA military veterans and commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One after marvelling at the Bastille Day military parade he attended in Paris past year.

Earlier in the day, CNBC and ABC News, citing unnamed officials, reported that the cost estimate of the parade - which was estimated in July to cost approximately $12 million - had swelled to $92 million.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss early planning estimates that had not yet been finalised or released publicly.

The cost for the parade would reportedly be split between $50 million from the Pentagon and $42 million for other agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security.

Officials said the plans had not yet been approved by Defence Secretary James Mattis. It also is expected to involve a number of military aircraft flyovers.

A Pentagon memo from March said the parade route would have a "heavy air component at the end of the parade".

The announcement was seen as a setback for the president, who had ordered the show of air power after being impressed by France's Bastille Day parade previous year.

"Maybe we will do something next year in D.C. when the cost comes WAY DOWN", the U.S. president said, adding: "Now we can buy some more jet fighters!" But they noted that "Trump has said he wants to try to top the French Bastille Day parade he attended a year ago in Paris, which lasted just over two hours".

The parade's budget director had offered an estimate of between $10m (£7.8m) and $30m (£23.6m) when the White House announced its request in February.

Pentagon spokesman Jamie Davis cautioned that "planning for the Military Veterans Day Parade continues and final details are still being developed".

The last military parade held in the nation's capital ran in 1991, after the end of the Gulf War.

Many Americans were outraged when Trump first suggested the parade, and many more were angered by the militaristic and nationalistic vanity project when the Commander-in-Chief returned from a Bastille Day parade in France and announced his parade was definitely a go.
