Week In Review Ending July 22: How Trump's Policies Moved Stocks

4. BOEING: On Wednesday, the White House Press Secretary issued a statement on the Air Force's award of a firm fixed price contract to Boeing (BA) to design, modify, test, certify, and deliver two Presidential, mission-ready aircraft by 2024. "The contract sets the total price for the two completed 'Air Force One' replacement aircraft at $3.9B, saving the taxpayers over $1.4B from the initially proposed $5.3B cost-plus contract. President Donald J. Trump has emphasized the need to minimize the cost of replacing the two existing Air Force One aircraft. Yesterday's action meets that objective and reflects the President's commitment to our military and to protecting taxpayer dollars," according to the White House's statement.

"It's a done deal," Cornyn said in an interview. The measure, which has been attached to a defense spending bill, could be signed into law as soon as this month, the report noted.
