Let’s just say for argument sake that a Democratic president-elect had said this very same thing about any American corporation, or any corporation for that matter. Do you think congressional Republicans would allow that president-elect to be sworn in as president?
But Trump set a new low and Republicans are happy to descend to that level even if it means attacking one of their sacred gods – Corporate Profits.
Tuesday morning came another tweet from Donald Trump apparently announcing the cancellation of an updated Air Force One. Trump tweeted that “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!”

A reporter asked if he was saying that he cancelled the Boeing order, Trump responded;
“Well, the plane is totally out of control. It’s going to be over $4 billion. It’s for Air Force One program, and I think it’s ridiculous. 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.”
Any elected Democrat making this statement would be run out of the country.
