On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney said there were “other contributing factors” that led to President Donald Trump’s cancelation of a military parade.
Mulvaney said, “If the parade had been canceled purely for fiscal reasons, I imagine I would have been in the room when that was made and I wasn’t. So my guess is there were other contributing factors.”
He continued, “This is a city that voted 70 or 80 percent against the president. So I think maybe the City Council of Washington, D.C. is not trying to help the president accomplish what he wants to accomplish shouldn’t be news to anybody.”
He added, “The $20 million you just mentioned is a number, that’s a number that I’m not familiar with. The numbers that I saw from the city were much higher than that.”
