The United States spent nearly $500 million to deploy National Guard troops to Washington, D.C. ahead of President Joe Biden’s inauguration, military officials said according to a Thursday report.
The cost includes transporting the troops from various states to D.C., health benefits, housing, and other essentials, U.S. military officials said according to the Associated Press. The expenses cover the price of keeping between 5,000 and 7,000 troops in D.C. through March 14.
The article goes on to state the following:
Around 26,000 National Guard troops from all 5o states and four territories were deployed to D.C. after the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol building. The troops were located across the city to protect the city from reported threats of violence. After the Jan. 6 riot, the Department of Homeland Security warned against further violence in a terrorism bulletin, the Associated Press reported.
Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham responded to a report on the massive amount of money spent on the deployment. She tweeted, “Where are the budget hawks?
This is insanity. We are spending $500 million on a political commercial for Nancy Pelosi. The Republicans should be talking about this every day. “National Guard deployment at Capitol costing nearly $500M”.

It’s not just the fence that continues to surround the entire U.S. Capitol complex including the House and Senate Office Buildings. It’s also these large military vehicles – and, of course, the thousands of National Guard troops. This is what I saw today. pic.twitter.com/hW8tJlv9X0
