Trump Targets Boeing for 'Out of Control' Air Force One Costs

By   Election FOXBusinessOpens a New Window.

Trump criticized Boeing on Tuesday for what he called “out of control” costs associated with a project to build two new Air Force One jets. He called for the federal government to cancel the company’s contract.
“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!” Trump wrote in a message on Twitter (TWTR).
Trump later spoke to reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York, saying the project is “ridiculous.”
“I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number,” Trump said. “We want Boeing to make a lot of money but not that much money.”
The last time that the government ordered two new 'Air Force Ones', which were based on the same Boeing 747 airframe, they cost approximately $325 Million apiece, in 1990. Boeing says that the two new planes will cost about $2 Billion each, about 6 times the price of the older ones.

HJL,We went to Bismarck this weekend and had chance to get a bit more information. In talking to one of the “protesters”, he is paid $1500 per week with legal and medical costs covered. In addition, he receives a bonus each time he is arrested. Their encampment receives supplies and propane for free with multiple deliveries each week. He looks on it as a job, and this is not his first protest.
