Type: Takes Undeserved CreditMay 02 2017 Severity: About: Military & Defense
President Trump gave a speech to the US Air Force Academy Falcons, presenting them with the Commander in Chief's Trophy. In that speech, Trump complained about saving 'billions and billions' from plane contracts but receiving no credit: "I have cut billions and billions of dollars off plane contracts sitting here. Do they give me credit? No, but that’s okay." Problem is those savings he cites were already negotiated between the Pentagon and Lockhead Martin before Trump became involved.
