Pentagon: We Never Briefed Trump On Parade Costs

Is anybody still even bothering to count the lies?

President Trump canceled his desired military parade before Pentagon officials briefed him on cost estimates for the event, a Defense Department spokesman said Monday.

“The president was not briefed by any member of the Department of Defense on any cost associated with the parade,” Col. Rob Manning told reporters at the Pentagon.

The statement seems to contradict Trump’s own tweet from Friday morning, in which he claimed he axed the event after receiving a high price estimate. The parade’s $92 million price tag leaked to the media on Thursday.
