Like most Trump stories these days, this one starts with a tweet made on Tuesday morning after the president elect realized how much the new Air Force One plane would cost.

“Cancel order” must have scared some people, because the stock took an immediate nosedive when it the market opened. The stock dropped two points, but of course liberals everywhere found a way to attack Trump.
