President Donald Trump has no problem whatsoever when it comes to exorbitant
expenditures paid for by the American peopleeven if he used to troll former
president Barack Obama for the very same.
The president seems to have no issue with a $24 million upgrade to Air Force
One, the jet Trump uses to go to Mar-a-Lago and golf nearly every weekend. The
presidential plane is primed to receive new refrigeratorscause you know Trump
has to have somewhere to store his Big Macs and KFC original recipe chicken
CNN reports that the U.S. Air Force awarded Boeing a $23.6 million contract in
December to replace two of the five cold chiller units aboard the aircraft.
The fridges hadnt been updated since 1990, and because its Air Force One, many
of its components require unique testing by the Federal Aviation Administration,
which obviously drives up the price.
When he was running for president, Trump boasted he would swap out Air Force One
with his private jet because the entire Air Force One programs costs were out
In fact, Obama reportedly had to scrap plans to upgrade his helicopter fleet in
2009, after those costs were made public.
At least one person in the Obama administration clapped back on the fact that
ole hypocrisy personified seemed to have no problem with Air Force One these
Former senior adviser to President Obama Eric Schultz said if his boss would
have even attempted that crap, we would have been impeached.
But in Trumps world, the rules dont apply to him.
Perhaps that impeachment thing will though . . .
