In an interview with CBS News, Trump said that two new replacements of the presidential jet due to be unveiled in several years will be painted red, white and blue, in a departure from the plane's current light blue color scheme.

Trump told CBS in an interview that aired on Tuesday that the new model Air Force One would be updated on the inside and have a different exterior color scheme from the current white and two shades of blue dating back to President John F. Kennedy's administration.

U.S. media reported last week that Mr Trump was planning to redesign the aircraft.

"I said, "I wonder if we should use the same baby blue colours?' And we're not".

He boasted that he helped negotiate a great deal with Boeing, saving the country $1.5 billion.

The program, managed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, is led by a two-star general and has about 100 employees in the Presidential Airlift Recapitalization Directorate at the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center headquarters. "I hate to say this, it's gonna be a long time".

Assistant Chief Constable Mark Williams stated that officers were committed to tracing the person who flew the aircraft. The US government reportedly spent more than $60,000 on President Donald Trump's weekend stay at his Turnberry resort.

Mr Trump has also reportedly expressed complaints about the softness of Air Force One's hand towels, a White House aide told the Huffington Post. It's gonna be the top of the line, the top in the world. "Red, white and blue".

Boeing chief executive Dennis Muilenburg and Trump have met multiple times to discuss the Air Force One contract.

The new Air Force One jets are scheduled to arrive by 2024.

Trump conceded more presidents than him may enjoy the new plane, which got a lot of use this past week as Trump traveled to and around Europe for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, his visit to the United Kingdom, and his meeting in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "It's a very complex project. But by the time it gets built, you're gonna have many presidents, hopefully, use it and enjoy it", he told the network. Trump wanted the new planes done by 2021.

When will Air Force One be ready?

But in 2016, Trump claimed that the initial price tag for the new planes was roughly $4 billion, a figure that he decried as "ridiculous" at the time.
