"Donald Trump’s “Salute to America” event on the Fourth of July cost US taxpayers a total of $5.35m (£4.75m), officials have revealed.

The Department of Defence said it contributed $1.2m (£1m) for last week’s military parade in the capital, while the city of Washington, DC put in $1.7m (£1.4m) to cover the event’s logistics.

The Interior Department and National Park Service spent another $2.45 (£2m) million on staffing costs, barricades and medical services, according to a letter shared with ABC News.

Congressman Raul Grijalva was among the Democrats condemning the cost of the president’s lavish celebration.

Mr Grijalva, chairman of the House committee overseeing the Interior Department, said the park service’s spending was “especially wrong” considering it had not yet paid off the bills from Mr Trump’s inauguration festivities." (More)
