He wants to change the paint scheme on Air Force 1 -- NOT SO FAST CON-BOY

President Donald Trump may not be seeing red, white and blue on a newly revamped Air Force One after all.

A House Democrat added a provision to the annual defense policy bill to put a stop to the president's patriotic design project. It will keep two new versions of the Boeing 747 aircraft within the projected spending target by banning certain paint jobs and other extras.

Rep. Joe Courtney, D-Conn., said the provision is necessary to avoid extra spending that goes beyond the project's $3.9 billion budget. The contract for the planes includes an "over and under" clause that could allow the project spending to go out of control, he warned.

So, lets hope at least that bad idea is dead.
