NEW YORK, NY – Say what you want about President-Elect Donald Trump but one thing that`s been consistent on his path to the White House is that he’s done things his way.
Now Trump is continuing in that mindset as he prepares to officially move into the oval office.
On Tuesday he ridiculed Boeing for building a new Air Force One plane that he claims will cost $4 billion! Trump ended his tweet stating “Cancel order!”
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 later reiterated his beliefs at Trump Tower, “It`s ridiculous, I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number. We want Boeing to make a lot of money but not that much money.”
Boeing is looking to replace the two current Air Force One models currently in use because it says they are outdated.
The airline company responded by releasing a statement saying “We are currently under contract for $170 million…We look forward to working with the U.S. Air Force on subsequent phases of the program allowing us to deliver the best planes for the President at the best value for the American taxpayer.”
Trump’s future presidency isn`t just affecting how the president potentially travels but his security as well.
Individual brokers at Trump Tower are reportedly advertising the Secret Service’s presence as a new hot feature of the property in an effort to attract premier tenants.
Just think, all of this drama and Trump hasn’t even been inaugurated yet.
