Donald Trump’s spokesman Jason Miller says the president-elect sold all his stocks in June, but did not specify whether he owned shares of Boeing. Americans still don’t know what he owns because he refuses to release this tax returns.
Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!

Trump attacked Boeing’s contract to build the new Air Force One plane as being too costly and demanding that the contract be canceled. He falsely claimed billions of dollars in cost overruns. Boeing’s stock took a bit of a hit after Trump’s tweet but has since recovered.
RELEASE: #Boeing statement on #AirForceOne: https://t.co/U4UcrTv1M8

Boeing issued a statement saying that they are in the planning stages, therefore there can’t be cost overruns. Um, facts never stopped Donald Trump from spewing venom, but will the mainstream media call him out?
What should raise concerns is that we don’t know what Donald Trump owns. His spokesman said he sold all his stocks, but who’s to say this cancel order wasn’t meant to depress the stock and for him to later purchase shares at a lower price? Or his family, for that matter. Of course, this is just a hypothetical theory, but what’s to say Donald Trump couldn’t do this? Also, he refuses to divest himself from his company, so we really don’t know what we are dealing with. Pretty scary stuff.
Sen. Ron Wyden gave the perfect answer to David Frum’s question about Trump selling all his stocks:
