"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 tweet
"The plane is totally out of control. It's going to be over $4 billion for the Air Force One program. I think it's ridiculous. I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number."
- Trump statement
This is classic Trumped Up Truth, consisting of overblown statements not based on fact. Boeing is not building the plane. Costs are not more than $4 billion. And no order has been placed. According to Boeing:
“We are currently under contract for $170 million to determine the capabilities of these complex military aircraft that serve the unique requirements of the President of the United States.”
