Donald Trump Tours 'Beautiful' Plane He Vowed to Never Fly On

Today, Donald Trump took a break from screaming at random reporters to tour Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner. That’s despite the fact that he tweeted (as, regrettably, he so often does) about never flying on the plane.

Well, okay, Trump wasn’t wrong about the Dreamliner having issues with lithium ion batteries. Strangely, however, none of that concern was on display today.

This isn’t the only time Trump has had beef with Boeing, either. Late last year, Trump bitched and moaned on Twitter about the company’s plan to upgrade Air Force One. I guess Trump has come around.

On Friday, the master negotiator spoke about his ongoing discussions with Boeing and Lockheed, whose F-35 he also complained about earlier this year. “We’re going to save billions and billions of dollars,” Trump said. “Many billions of dollars. Most important we are going to have a great product from both Boeing and Lockheed.”

“God bless Boeing,” Trump said.
