This, right here, is exactly how Donald Trump will save the American taxpayer trillions of dollars over the next four years.
A few weeks ago, Trump famously tweeted that he’d like to cancel his order of the newest Air Force 1 because he found out that it would cost close to $4 billion. Well since then the left has been attempting to say that Trump had no facts and that the place wouldn’t cost nearly that much. Even though the last one was up around $3.2 billion all in.
So what did that tweet do? It forced the hand of Boeing, a company who just said that it’ll make one anyway…but at a fraction of the cost.
The CEO of Boeing told President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday that his company can build a new Air Force One for less than originally quoted — after Trump complained about the cost.
Boeing’s Dennis Muilenburg, who met with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., addressed the media after the meeting and said, “We’re going to get it done for less than that, and we’re committed to working together to make sure that happens.”
Anthony Scaramucci, a Trump adviser the founder of SkyBridge Capital, tweeted about the price reduction and called it a “big win for taxpayers.”
Run America like a business right? Well it’s off to a great start. If this is what we can look forward to, America will dig itself out of the massive hole that Obama put us in.
