In his exclusive interview on ABC News with George Stephanopoulos, in addition to admitting he’s a colluding shitbag and has every intention of doing so yet again given the opportunity, Donald Trump unveiled his new plans for Air Force One to the host.
Evidently, Donald wants to ditch the current design and robin egg blue color of the plane, designed by John F. and Jackie Kennedy in the early 1960s (which Trump refers to as a “Jackie Kennedy color”), and plans to reinvent the aircraft to look “more American.”
Trump announced the $39 billion dollar makeover for the plane this time last year, but this is the first time anyone has seen actual images of the prospective redesign.
“George, take a look at this,” Trump proclaimed to Stephanopoulos during the exclusive interview, as he pulled out mockups of his visions for the aircraft. “Here’s your new Air Force One.”
“We had different choices, here,” Trump stated as he pointed out different versions of the images he designed himself. “These are all slightly different.”
Of course, Air Force One refers to any aircraft that is carrying the POTUS, most commonly a pair of Boeing 747-200B series aircraft — complete with several amenities according to the White House, including a presidential suite, a medical operating room, and a kitchen that “can feed 100 people.”
“Is the frame still a 747?” the ABC host asked.
“It’s a 747, but you know, it’s a much bigger plane,” Donald replied. “It’s a much bigger wingspan.”
Of course, Trump being Trump, he had to make it clear that he is still keeping a few secrets about his big, exciting airplane.
“There are a couple of secrets,” Donald teased. “You know what, there are a couple of secrets I don’t think we’re supposed to be talking about.”
While Trump certainly seems to be giddy at the prospect of his new toy, Twitter unsurprisingly does not share in his elation:
Because there are apparently no other MORE important issues to deal with? WTF!

The big secret is the 24k gold commode he’s putting in for himself #Chump45

Trump redesigning Air Force One is the ultimate misuse of tax payers money when the National debt is soaring out of sight. When farmers need to be bailed out as a result of his trade wars. When facilities have to be built or opened up to house his inhumane treatment of children!

Frankly, no one is excited about his airplane but him. We’re all just hoping he’ll be long gone before he gets a chance to use it.
