US President-elect Donald Trump has said he wants to cut government costs by cancelling the order for new planes to carry the American president.

Six weeks ahead of taking office, he tweeted that Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than 4 billion dollars, so the order should be Cancelled.

Trump would not fly on the new planes unless he won a second term in the 2020 election.

The president-elect also announced yesterday that Japan's SoftBank has agreed to invest 50 billion dollars in the US aimed at creating 50,000 new jobs.
