On Tuesday, Donald Trump attempted to cancel the pending order for the new Air Force One the only way that he knows how: on Twitter.

The dig was directed at Boeing, the aircraft company who he claims is "doing a little bit of a number," with the cost, according to the New York Times. For someone who has dedicated his life to building luxury properties around the world, it's interesting to see Trump drawing the line on this cost. But it could be that Trump just has an affinity for his own plane, a Boeing 757 that he uses to jet around the world.

There are some obvious hurdles to Trump using his personal plane when he's the President, mostly related to security issues. The new Air Force One also would be used for future U.S. presidents beyond Trump's term (though it's hard to even imagine a time when this is all behind us) so it doesn't really make sense that he would object in the long-term investment anyway.

Luckily, Trump doesn't have the final say on this decision so his tweet amounts to nothing, aside from creating some suspicion about what he could be hiding on his own personal plane. After all, there must be something on there that he can't live without if he, the man of ultimate luxury, doesn't want to start using a bigger, faster plane after his inauguration.
