"George, check this out", Trump praised ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, as he blinked mock-ups off his vision for the next generation of the presidential aircraft. "Here's your new Air Force One."
In July, Trump announced that he intended to renew the design of the aging fleet. But on Wednesday, during an exclusive interview with ABC News, Trump showed his plan to change the iconic sky-blue and white color work for a patriotic red, white, and blue.
"We had different choices here," Trump said, pointing to pictures he said he designed himself. "
" Air Force One "refers to each aircraft carrying the US president and usually referring to a pair of Boeing 747-200B series airplanes.
The current fleet comes with several modifications, including a presidential suite, a hospital, and a kitchen that "can feed 100 people at a time," according to the White House.
"Is the frame still a 747?" Stephanopoulos asked.
"It's a 747, but you know, it's a much bigger plan," Trump replied. "It's a much bigger wing."
Despite his desire to share the preliminary sketches, the president still holds some details near the west.
