Remember claimant Donald Trump’s consistent angry about how costly Air Force One is during the 2016 election season? Yeah, about that…
Apparently now that he’s President, angry phrases like “costs are out of control” and “cancel order!” per Air Force One in ubiquitous — well, those difference just aren’t very critical now are they?
Boeing is building a code new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, some-more than $4 billion. Cancel order!

Trump’s Air Force just done a $23.6 million understanding with Boeing to reinstate two “cold chiller units” on Air Force One — and given this is something that will advantage Trump privately rather than “our future presidents,” we haven’t listened a singular sight from him about the costs.
“The stream back reduce lobe cold chiller units being transposed are the strange blurb apparatus delivered with the aircraft in 1990. The units were formed on the record at the time and designed for short-term food storage,” Air Force orator Ann Stefanek told CNN. “Although serviced on a unchanging basis, trustworthiness has decreased with failures increasing, generally in hot/humid environments. The units are incompetent to effectively support goal mandate for food storage.”
“The units and compared aircraft constructional modifications are being specifically designed to yield scarcely 70 cubic feet of temperature-controlled (refrigeration/freezer) storage to support on-board crew for an extended duration of time, but having to restock while abroad,” Stefanek says.
In other words, 3 whole refrigeration units — 210 cubic feet of storage — can’t hold adequate food for Trump to eat during abroad trips, so they feel it required to fix the other two at a rather unreasonable cost. Or something. Ultimately, you’re profitable for it, though.
If the cost seems high, it’s substantially given it is. Former Obama comparison confidant Eric Schultz took a moment out of his day to ridicule Trump for the purchase, tweeting “we would have been impeached.”

When he was using for President, he pronounced he would use his private jet instead of Air Force One, but has been using the presidential jet given he took office.
