Trump Saves Millions on F35 Fighter Program
More good news from the Trump Administration: As a result of President Trump's complaints over the money being spent on the F35 fighter jet development, a new deal has been reached between the Pentagon and F35 developer Lockheed Martin:
"Trump, as president-elect, made headlines in December when he tweeted that the costs for the F-35 program were “out of control.This led to meetings and negotiations with the defense mega-contractor, apparently culminating in Friday's nearly $9 billion agreement.Lt. Gen. Chris Bogdan, F-35 program executive officer, called the contract a "good and fair" deal for taxpayers."
No other presidents seem to have dared tread here as this plane has been in development for years and I've heard nothing positive about it the whole time. The word going around was the F35 was a boondoggle.
Trump: love him or hate him (I'm on the fence, if anything), you have to give credit where credit is due.
