Winning! Every day, it seems Trump brings home another win for U.S. taxpayers!

The cost of the new Air Force One was projected to be $ 4.2 billion. On December 6, Trump tweeted this out:

Today, he met with the Boeing CEO. And the Boeing CEO said this (via CNBC):

 

The Washington Times reported: 

“After meeting Wednesday with Donald Trump, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said he would find a way to lower the price for a new Air Force One fleet, the cost of which the president-elect earlier complained was “out of control.”

The aerospace executive said Mr. Trump had a good “business head” and said the price of the Air Force One project would be more affordable than the previously anticipated $ 4 billion.

“It went great. Very productive, and really encouraged by the dialogue. Good, open discussion,” he told reporters outside Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, where the president-elect is holding a meeting this week.

“We’re all focused on the same thing here, we’re going to make sure that we give our warfighters the best capability in the world and that we do it in a way that is affordable for our taxpayers,” Mr. Muilenburg said. “It was a terrific conversation. Got a lot of respect for him. He’s a good man. And he’s doing the right thing.”
Asked specifically about the $ 4 billion price tag for the two planes for the Air Force One fleet, he said it would be done for less.”
