TRUMP WANTS TO CANCEL ‘$4 BILLION’ AIR FORCE ONE, ‘RIDICULOUS AND OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING!’

Posted on Updated on

Trump dumps the new Air Force One: President-elect announces that the U.S. should cancel Boeing order because ‘ridiculous’ $4billion costs are ‘totally out of control’

  • President-elect tweeted that ‘costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!’
  • He spoke to reporters less than an hour later, saying Boeing ‘is doing a little bit of a number. We want Boeing to make a lot of money, but not that much money’
  • Congress set aside $1.65 billion last year to cover the entire Air Force One replacement through 2019
  • It’s unclear where Trump’s $4 billion number originated but his spokesman cited aircraft construction plus ‘research and development’ costs
  • White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Trump’s numbers ‘don’t appear to reflect the nature of the financial agreement between Boeing and the Department of Defense’ 
  • The ‘mobile Oval Office’ includes 4,000 square feet of space on three separate levels, a dining room, a medical operating room and missile defenses
