- Trump apparently wants to redesign the official presidential planes because they don’t look “American” enough.
President Donald Trump reportedly wants to make his bed onboard Air Force One larger and more comfortable like the one on his personal jet, Axios reported on Thursday.
The report described Trump’s sleeping accommodations on his private plane to be an “executive livery package” compared to his current situation of “couch-like sleeping” on Air Force One.
During the presidential campaign, Trump used his personal plane, a Boeing 757 airliner-turned-private-jet, to travel around the country. It reportedly cost $US100 million.
Here’s what his bed looks like on his private plane:
A photo of former President George W. Bush shows the commander in chief’s bedroom, with a coach pulled out into a bed. The Trump White House hasn’t released any photos of the private suite, so it’s unclear if Trump has the same configuration aboard Air Force One today.
Trump’s reported request for a bigger bed comes as he wants to redesign his official presidential planes because they don’t look American enough, according to an unidentified source who talked to Axios. The president is apparently interested in changing the colour of Air Force One to red, white, and blue.
The colour scheme of the Boeing 747s – which take on the “Air Force One” call sign when the president is onboard – is currently light blue and white. The But Trump reportedly believes they do not sufficiently represent the United States.
