This man doesn’t sleep!
Determined to make good on his bold campaign promises, president-elect Donald Trump is leaping into action before Inauguration Day.
Trump tweeted his latest bold move to Twitter and has the social media world buzzing.
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
According to Breaking 911:
Boeing won the contract in January 2015. But it wasn’t much of a competition. Boeing’s 747-8 was the only plane made in the United States that could meet the requirements for the presidential aircraft while also being “consistent with the national public interest,” Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James said in a statement at the time.
She insisted that the Pentagon “will insist upon program affordability through cost-conscious procurement practices.”
The Air Force and Boeing didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Trump however, provided a quick comment, calling the obscenely expensive plan for a new and improved Air Force One “ridiculous.”
“I think Boeing is doing “a little bit of a number,” he added.

It’s impossible to ignore the CNBC commentators stunned and seemingly disgusted reactions. Because what might be great news for taxpayers, apparently doesn’t sit well with a lot of liberals who are gunning for a Trump fail:

And some just used the opportunity to vent their unhinged rage:

Newsflash: It’s not “complaining” to question the cost of that “updated technology.” Why wouldn’t you save taxpayers their hard-earned money and possibly deny corporations the inflated profits liberals supposedly love to hate? Unless, it’s Trump doing the dealing, of course.
Trump supporters were there to push back against the haters. And pushback they did:
