A month later, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg met with Trump and declared they had made "great progress" in discussions about holding down the program's cost.
"We're going to get it done for less than that, and we're committed to working together to make sure that happens," CEO Dennis Muilenburg said. "And I was able to give the president-elect my personal commitment on behalf of the Boeing Co. This is a business that's important to us. We work on Air Force One because it's important to our country, and we're going to make sure that he gets the best capability and that it's done affordably."
