Donald Trump is more than just America’s president – he’s America’s CEO.
When we’ve racked up over $20 trillion in debt, it’s about time we have someone running the show whose used to needing to raise more in revenues than they’re paying out. Sure, we’ve been told that Trump has “gone bankrupt four times,” but what actually went bankrupt were individual businesses. Given that Trump has stakes in over 500 businesses, four failures is nothing (especially when you consider that MOST new businesses fail within five years).
He’s already negotiated with businesses to bring back hundreds of thousands of jobs before taking office, and now that he can control fiscal policy he can design tax incentives nationally to create more jobs.
He’s also done what no President has even tried to do before in negotiating down the cost of government. The most recent example comes from negotiations over Air Force One, whose cost Trump has complained about excessively. As the Gateway Pundit reported:
President Trump said Saturday that he has reduced the price of two new Air Force One planes by more than $1 billion after spending about an hour on negotiations.
Trump previously slammed the cost of the $4.2 billion Boeing program on Twitter as being too high and secured a personal promise from Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg to complete the program for under $4 billion.
“I refuse to fly in a $4.2 billion plane,” Trump said at his Melbourne, Fla., rally. “We’ve got that price down by over $1 billion and I probably haven’t spoken for more than an hour on the project. I got the generals in who are fantastic … but I told Boeing that isn’t good enough, the price is still too high.”
One billion saved from just one hour of negotiations! To give some perspective, given that Obama spent $100 in taxpayer dollars on vacations during his eight years in office, that’s enough savings to fund 80 years of Obama vacations.
Not bad – let’s see what he cuts next.
