Sorry, but I'm a stickler for accuracy these days. My stomach contracts when I see false thread titles. Trump did NOT cancel anything -- as said in
your thread title and in your second paragraph. You added an "s" to the title which makes it an action not a "quote" of what Trump DESIRES or what
he said (with a typo to boot).
Your statement, "He cancelled it. Think HRC would have cancelled it? " is just not true. This is how crap and memes (regardless of topic) get started
and why I am increasingly becoming frustrated reading here. People are turning truth and accuracy into pretzels to make their political point.
At any rate, Trump is not even sworn in yet. He has not done anything. He has not reviewed the contract or conferred with the procurement
officials/lawyers to get out of it yet. We do not even know what is included in the procurement. "Hardening" Air Force One and providing it the
capability of managing a global war from its location may require such things as a separate satellite for state-of-the-science space-based weaponry
and communications -- of which that technology can be used by the USAF in other areas. We just don't know what is lumped into the contract. Boeing,
as a prime contractor, has multiple team members with separate components. Acquisitions like this are complicated and can cross over into other things
as new technology is developed and infused.
Simplifying it and stating what Hillary would do is silly without the facts. How is the "let's lock her up" working for you now? Or, there is no
global warming and is a ruse by China, but let's meet with Gore just in case. Or "get rid of all the generals" -- but let's appoint them into the
cabinet anyway. Or, Hillary is in bed with the Banks because she gave a speech, but let's put 3 Goldman Sachs execs with no government experience in
to run things. I want to see Trump Inc. pay 35% taxes on all of the Trump empire apparel that he has made overseas (from his line of ties/shirts to
Ivanka's clothing). I could go on... Sooner or later, folks will learn to judge Trump by ACTUAL actions not wishful thinking or his garbage
At any rate, the contract will likely get re-negotiated. Especially after the huge article that Bob Woodward had about DoD spending in the Washington
Post this morning. But, how about discussing it from a fact-based starting point?
