Trump says cancel Air Force One contract
WASHINGTON - Donald Trump wants the government's contract for a new Air Force One canceled.
The president-elect tweeted that the contract with Boeing for a new presidential plane is costing $4 billion.
He later told reporters at Trump Tower that the manufacturer is "doing a little bit of a number" and the cost is "ridiculous."
Trump added that, "We want Boeing to make a lot of money, but not that much money."
The government has contracted with Boeing to build two or more new planes that would go into service around 2024.
