PLANE – It was a central tool in Donald Trump’s victorious presidential campaign in 2016. The real estate mogul’s Boeing 757 is getting a makeover and will be used for future political meetings, the former president announced on Friday May 21 .
“Many people wonder about the magnificent Boeing 757, which has become so emblematic of Trump meetings,” the 45th President of the United States wrote in a statement.
From the engines to the painting of the fuselage, the aircraft “is currently being completely renovated,” added Donald Trump, promising a return to service before the end of the year.
“It will be better than ever”
“Once finished, it will be better than ever and used again for future gatherings,” continued the billionaire, without going so far as to mention a new campaign for the White House.
In 2016, Donald Trump had chained the presidential meetings organized along the tarmacs of various airports.
According to a well-organized ritual, the Republican candidate disembarked from his aircraft branded with the enormous golden letters “TRUMP” and spoke in front of his supporters, with his plane clearly visible in the background.
