WASHINGTON (AP) – President-elect Donald Trump wants the government’s contract for a new Air Force One canceled.

The president-elect tweeted that the contract with Boeing for a new presidential plane is costing $4 billion.

He later told reporters at Trump Tower that the manufacturer is “doing a little bit of a number” and the cost is “ridiculous.”

Trump added that, “We want Boeing to make a lot of money, but not that much money.”

The government has contracted with Boeing to build two or more new planes that would go into service around 2024.
