The tanks and aircraft are already owned by the US Government. The crews of both got practice time in. The military are salaried, there is no overtime. #NeverTrump losers are just blowing up the estimates of costs. How much fuel do you think the military uses when driving tanks on ranges at Fort Knox? How much jet fuel is used when those same pilots are getting their required hours in flying over McGuire AFB?

This is in addition to $2.5 million diverted from the already depleted National Parks Budget and $1.7 million from Washington DC's already depleted Emergency Planning fund.
All for Trump's campaign publicity stunt.

Pentagon: July 4 Flyovers, Tank Displays And Performances Cost $1.2 Million
The Pentagon's comptroller said it cost an extra $1.2 million to put on its portion of President Trump's "Salute to America" program for an expanded Fourth of July celebration in Washington, D.C., last week.

I wonder what the real price tag for this princess party actually was?

Meanqhile, sure. Drain the anti-terror funds. Why not? We will never need them.

*Rolls eyes*

Your thoughts?
My thought is that he needs to pay for his princess party out of his own damned pocket (assuming he has that kind of money)

But realistically, he'll probably take it from the military like he did the wall Mexico was supposed to pay for.

Hey wait, maybe we can send Mexico a bill for the whole thing - They LOVE Donald Trump! :smirk:

Nothing spent in service to the emperor is too much.
