WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Miller said the Trump’s company stock was sold when asked about president elect's shares in airplane maker Boeing.
“The president-elect sold all of his stock back in June,” he said.
The spokesman didn’t explain why Trump sold the shares, nor would he disclose their value or say if Trump has made any stock purchases since, the Washington Post reported after the call. The newspaper noted that the incoming president won’t be legally required to file another personal financial disclosure until May 2018.
Earlier Tuesday, Trump said he wanted to cancel the US government to cancel its $4 billion order from Boeing for a new Air Force One because the plane’s price and associated research and development program are "ridiculous."
According to media reports, the Air Force has budgeted $1.65 billion for the next version of Air Force One, the US president’s official aircraft, between 2015 and 2019. Two planes will be needed to replace two current Boeing 747-200s that in 2017 will reach the end of their 30-year service.
