President-elect Donald Trump criticized the F-35 fighter jet early Monday, saying the “program and cost is out of control.”
Trump said that when he takes office he will work to control costs of military contracts.
“The F-35 program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20th,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Trump’s tweet comes after he attended the annual Army-Navy football game, where four F-35s conducted a flyover before the game.
