Trump Administration Wants to Buy Jets Meant For a Defunct Russian Airline

by Tammy Levent

President Trump is making another controversial decision as of late. They want to buy two 747-8 jets that were made by Boeing. But these jets were originally meant for a defunct Russian airline. That has cast some doubt on the executive office and their decision making abilities. Reporters wonder if President Trump is doing the right research ahead of time.

Key Takeaways:

  • President Trump made another puzzling move with a potential buy. He wants to buy a couple of 747-8 jets made by Boeing.
  • However, it seems these jets were originally made for use in Russia. That could disqualify the president from buying the jets for America.
  • The bungled jet buy was another setback for the new administration. Many are wondering if the president has what it takes to move forward.

“The U.S. Air Force is in talks to purchase two 747-8 jetliners from Boeing Co. that were originally bound for Transaero Airlines, once Russia’s second-largest airline, said a person briefed on the talks.”
