President Donald Trump has made an art out of humiliating Barack Obama, and he’s just done it again. Now, Democrats have no choice but to shut up after Trump just came through on yet another “yuge” campaign promise to Americans.
Donald Trump inherited a mountain of bad deals on top of one of the most corrupt governments in our nation’s history when he took office. Millions of American patriots chose Trump because of his promise to drain the swamp and clean up the obscene amount of financial waste from the Obama era. Luckily for us, he’s delivering.
According to Daily Caller, a report was released on Tuesday, February 27, 2018, revealing that Trump has kept his promise to save taxpayers a boatload of cash on the rotten Airforce One deal made by Obama with the Boing corporation.
There are very few people in our country who would not consider $1.4 billion to be a lot of money. Thanks to our brilliant President, that’s the amount of money he just saved taxpayers on the next generation of Air Force One aircraft. But, I still would not be surprised to hear Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) call that “breadcrumbs.”
The President made the stupendous announcement today through an exclusive statement to Fox News. This is another promise kept and we “Deplorables” could not be happier about it. Thank God, there is finally someone with some financial skills running our government.
The informal deal struck between Trump and the Boeing Corporation to save taxpayers $1.4 billion is a result of careful negotiations that started before Trump’s inauguration. “President Trump has reached an informal deal with Boeing on a fixed price contract for the new Air Force One Program. Thanks to the president’s negotiations, the contract will save the taxpayers more than $1.4 billion,” Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Tuesday.
The new deal is reportedly worth $3.9 billion, which is far less than the over $5 billion deal Obama tried to saddle us with. According to a statement from the Boeing Corporation, the cost covers the building of two aircraft “including things unique to Air Force One such as a communications suite, internal and external stairs, large galleys and other equipment.”
The company’s statement also read, “Boeing is proud to build the next generation of Air Force One, providing American Presidents with a flying White House at [an] outstanding value to taxpayers. President Trump negotiated a good deal on behalf of the American people.”
Notably, Trump began negotiations during the transition period between former President Barack Obama’s administration and his own. Our President publicly humiliated Obama over the rotten deal on Twitter on December 6, 2016, saying, “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!”
It’s since been revealed that the costs would have easily been over $5 billion. According to an official with knowledge of the program, the total cost estimate was always over $5 billion — the official explained that Trump simply “was given bad information in 2016” when he tweeted that the cost was $4 billion.
The bottom line here is that Donald Trump saved Americans a ton of money in a deal where Barack Obama got suckered because he has no business acumen.
“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,” Trump said in December 2016.
