Donald Told Boeing Don’t Build The Plane, Here’s What They Did In Response…
There’s always a way to get a better deal, no doubt about it. I can recall many a time talking a salesman down on a price to get something that was more agreeable. That’s something that in case you haven’t figured out by now, Donald Trump is REALLY good at.
When Donald Trump talks, people listen. Remember when he sent a tweet telling Boeing to cancel their $4 billion order for a new Air Force One?
They got the message. Boeing will now complete the job for less. This is big league. From Fox News: Trump called on the government to cancel the contract and called the supposed $4 billion price tag out of control.
Boeing’s Dennis Muilenburg, who met with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., addressed the media after the meeting and said, “We’re going to get it done for less than that, and we’re committed to working together to make sure that happens.”
Anthony Scaramucci, a Trump adviser the founder of SkyBridge Capital, tweeted about the price reduction and called it a “big win for taxpayers.”
People are afraid to criticize Trump due to fear of backlash.
Same goes for big companies.
