On Thursday an official said the cost of such an event could top $90 Million. Which is nearly three times as much as the White House earlier estimated. The difference ministry postponed the event eventually planned for November 10th in Washington.

He also said that he will attend a parade at joint base Andrew in Maryland but has not named any date. A spokeswoman at the base was not able to provide the date for the event.
