Trump’s 12th post-election lie: Saved $1 billion on Air Force One

 

During a recent rant (late February 2016), President Donald “Trumporleone” Trump falsely bragged that he saved American taxpayers $1 billion on the purchase cost of a new Air Force One plane. (Mary Papenfuss) At the time, The Don said:

  • “They were close to signing a $4.2 billion deal to have a new Air Force One.”
  • “Can you believe this? I said, ‘No way.’ I said, ‘I refuse to fly in a $4.2 billion airplane. I refuse.”

The Don went on to say:

  • “We got that price down by over $1 billion, and I probably haven’t spoken, to be honest with you, for more than an hour on the project.” he continued.
  • “I got the generals in, who are fantastic. I got Boeing in.”
  • “But I told Boeing, it’s not good enough. We’re not going to do it. The price is too high.”

In response to The Don’s fabricated falsehood, Air Force Spokesman Colonel Pat Ryder told Bloomberg News:

  • “To my knowledge, I have not been told that we have that information.”

Col. Ryder went to say that the price had not yet been determined nor had they yet been designed. He followed up by saying:

  • “That will give us a better idea of how much we’ll be looking at for the cost.”

So here we have The Don negotiating with Boeing to reduce the costs of building the Air Force One before Boeing has suggested or submitted a price to the Air Force. Magical stuff, right Homer? It is painfully clear that The Don continues to retain his exalted position as America’s League Leading Liar.

 

How many bald-faced lies will The Don have to tell before his supporters proclaim they’ve had enough? It appears The Don will have to get into triple figures before any of them decided to detach the umbilical chord.
