Donald Trump isn’t going to waste a dime as President. While Barack Obama racked up $20 trillion in debt, and enjoyed all the luxuries of the Presidency, whether it be by taking vacations or his golf hobby, Trump isn’t going to do the same. He’s already said he won’t be taking any vacations as President – or a salary. The ‘no vacation” promise shouldn’t be difficult for a man whose been living with the lifestyle of a businessman his entire life (work – and more work).
He won’t even be accepting the new Air Force One jet he’s supposed to ride on because it’ll cost $4 billion in taxpayer money to build. As the Gateway Pundit reported:
Donald Trump slammed Boeing in a Tuesday morning tweet.
The president-elect complained about costs being out of control for the new Air Force One presidential plane.
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!

Here’s video of comments he made to Fox News on the matter:
Donald Trump: “Well the plane is totally out of control. It’s going to be over $4 billion for the Air Force One program. And, I think it’s ridiculous. i think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number. We want Boeing to make a lot of money but not that much money.”
We really need to save every penny we can. Thanks to eight years of Barack Obama, we don’t have much wiggle room when it comes to government waste. To put that in perspective, here’s what “only” $1 trillion looks like stacked in $100 bills.
And we owe TWENTY times that! Good riddance to the Obama presidency, or God knows how far the debt would’ve risen.
