Trump Hits Boeing for ‘$4 Billion’ Air Force One: ‘The Plane Is Totally Out of Control’

Tuesday in the lobby of Trump Tower, President-elect Donald Trump elaborated on an earlier tweet he posted decrying Boeing’s escalating costs of the new Air Force One.

Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 6, 2016

Trump called the price tag “out of control” and accused the aerospace giant of “doing a little bit of a number.”

“The plane is totally out of control,” Trump said. “It’s going to be over $4 billion. It’s for the Air Force One program. And I think it’s ridiculous. I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number. We want Boeing to make a lot of money but not that much money.”
