Boeing Co. on Tuesday became the latest company to be singled out by President-elect Donald Trump, who suggested the aircraft manufacturer was trying to rip off taxpayers in the planned construction of jets to replace the existing Air Force One fleet.
“I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number,’’ Mr. Trump said in brief remarks in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York City. “We want Boeing to make a lot of money but not that much money.”
Using Twitter, Mr. Trump wrote of the planned deal, “Cancel order!”
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!

Later this morning Donald Trump spoke briefly with reporters in Trump Tower about the Air Force One program.
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.”
