Reporters Owe Donald Trump an Apology for NOT Checking Their Facts Emmanuel December 6, 2016 Politics You Might Like After Donald Trump Tweeted about the out of control costs of Air Force One, reporters jumped on his back and tried to further their claims of President-elect Trump having “faulty facts” that he can’t back up. Well, they owe him an apology. See below… 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! — Donald J.
