The Banana Republic beat goes on.
Why did Donald Trump send out this tweet?
ProPublica explains: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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 6, 2016
Trump's incorrect tweet slamming Boeing came minutes after critical story on Trump trade that quoted company CEO.
Talking Points Memo has the details:
The article recounts a speech Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg gave before the Illinois Manufacturers' Association on Friday in which he was mildly critical of Trump's plans both for the Export-Import Bank and more protectionist trade policies.-RW
