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.

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.”
