Never mind the fact that Trump might never get to fly in one of the two new Air Force One aircraft, which are expected to enter service some time between 2018 and 2022.

The irony of the fact that the comes from a backdoor Russian source while the Trump’s administration is under investigation for colluding with Russia will be lost on no one.
