Donald Trump came under fire for saying the Boeing Air-Force-One replacement program was ridiculously too costly at a $4 billion price tag:
Immediately the Trump opposition, which is essentially the entire MSM apparatus, went into apoplectic rage and attack mode because, according to them, there was no basis for the price assertion at $4 billion.
However, Pentagon contract documents obtained by The Daily Mail show Donald Trump was precisely correct, and all the moonbat antagonists were precisely wrong.
[…] The Defense Department budget documents show a total of $2.872 billion in existing and planned spending on the main Boeing project between 2015 and 2021, all for Research, Development, Test & Evaluation – or RDT&E, in government-speak.
A separate schedule identifies another $330.7 million in ‘other’ costs, described as ‘facilities’ for the Presidential Aircraft Recapitalization program – the official bureaucratic name for the catch-all Air Force One project.
All that money, however, won’t get either of the two redundant planes built. That will require a separate $1.062 billion ‘procurement’ request, which the Pentagon spelled out last year. (link ).
Yeah, that’s a total of $4.265 Billion. Just like President-elect Donald Trump said it was…
