Boeing CEO praises Trump’s ‘business sense’ after meeting, vows to reduce cost of new Air Force One

Under budget and ahead of schedule!

That what President-elect Donald Trump pledges for the new Air Force One.

After meeting with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg Wednesday, Trump’s team said the manufacturer will build the aircraft for less than $4 billion.

Trump negotiated the price down after balking at the hefty original price tag two weeks ago.

The real estate mogul knows something about plane costs: He owns several airplanes, including a Boeing 757.

Sean Spicer, communications director of the Republican National Committee, shared the good news on Twitter.

Earlier this month, Trump expressed outrage over the $4 billion price tag of the new Air Force One, and threatened to cancel the Boeing order, suggesting he could negotiate a better deal.

After meeting with Trump, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg praised the brash billionaire for his excellent “business head” and promised Air Force One will be built for less than the original quoted price.

“We’re going to get it done for less than that,” Muilenburg said. “I was able to give the president-elect my personal commitment on behalf of the Boeing Co.”

He added: “This is a business that’s important to us. We work on Air Force One because it’s important to our country and we’re going to make sure that he gets the best capability and that it’s done affordably.”

During his campaign, Trump repeatedly promised to weed out “waste, fraud and abuse” in the government, which is buckling under a $19 trillion national debt.

“You have tremendous waste, fraud, and abuse. That we’re going to take care of,” Trump vowed.
