Congress to investigate costs of Trump's Fourth of July 'Salute to America'

Congress to investigate costs of Trump's Fourth of July 'Salute to America' | 03 July 2019 | The top House Democrat with oversight over the National Mall said Wednesday she'll probe the administration’s decision to shift money to pay for President Trump's July Fourth celebration. Rep. Betty McCollum, Minnesota Democrat and chair of the subcommittee that oversees National Park Service spending, called the president's plans to tap park user fees "absolutely outrageous." Mr. Trump has downplayed the cost of the event, saying on Twitter he thinks he's giving Americans a good deal. "The cost of our great Salute to America tomorrow will be very little compared to what it is worth. We own the planes, we have the pilots, the airport is right next door (Andrews), all we need is the fuel. We own the tanks and all. Fireworks are donated by two of the greats. Nice!" he wrote.|
