But will he stop the supply chain from all over the world to ensure it is an entirely American built aircraft and thus protect jobs?

Is this the football equivalent of the chairman's vote of confidence?

Volvo might consider expanding to Fence Construction as there may be a lucrative market coming up in the United States. It would be a Fad at best because once the first surge of buying is over the market would probably decline rapidly unless it took off in other places in the country.

Draining the swamp

Draining the swamp, has become associated with Trump's enthusiasm for a simpler and less bureaucratic Washington. Out of context this seems fine (making no comment here about whether it's only anti-trump and anti GOP bureaucracy he's against), or even in it's reference to Reagan's use of the term.
But it's worth remembering the Democrats earlier used the term in reference to increasing Oligarchy, and it was coined By Winfield Gaylord.
The Democrat.
In 1903.

Anyhow better hope those Trent blades weren't made in Mexico.

What I don't understand is, us Europeans are told in no uncertain terms not to concern ourselves with US politics and internal affairs, while you, spearheaded by your president are extremely preoccupied with what goes on over here.
Interesting strategy, but hey, if it is worse somewhere else it can't be too bad here.

This won't work in Jet Blast since it simply plays the same old tunes.

Now if the thread were to keep mostly to new jokes that at least matched the B787 and Trumpet together it might work in JB.

me thinks you and others missed the point that Trumpet was trying to make, indelicately with a between the eyes approach.

he wasn't attempting to suggest what others beyond our bordesr should do. But only searching for a recent baddie anywhere in the world to point out examples of what he was trying to protect the USA from.

Of course I can't make an apology for his moronic words, but his intent was honorable and fit the crowd but not the TV audience.

I wish our gullible-for-news media folks would stop covering his stupid speeches and work only from interpretations that his staff gives them.

The Future for Aviation with Trump at the helm!

Not shure what this thread is all about.?

But I am super interested in what The Donald has in store for us.

For you locals that like him and have taken better notes, can any of you please tell me what he plans with regards to the following items.;

Future of the US Export Import bank that assists Boeing and other aviation companies?
MiddelEast airliners subsidy of long haul ( as claimed by Delta)?
Norwegians destruction of US mainlines?
Any new policy that we here in Europe should keep in mind.?

I do value any news on this , as I have a hard time following him.
Regards

Quite easy to miss the point when the Trump opens his mouth.

Perhaps it is more the listener that is at fault for that....as one must listen as well as hear!

It is at least possible that the Trump is inarticulate, capricious, and volatile. It is virtually certain that he speaks without thinking....to wit:

"The largest Electoral vote victory since Reagan..." A thinking and circumspect President would have said what was absolutely true, instead...

"I accomplished the most unexpected victory in Electoral history...."

Trump is not immune to the American addiction to a flawed perspective.

"Confusing the "urgent" with the "important" "

imho

I really don't like getting political in this forum, but if some of the above opinions about Trump are permitted, then I trust that I may be allowed to submit mine: He's an arrogant, ignorant, misinformed and dangerous man who may wreak havoc throughout the USA and the world. I may be wrong of course. I certainly hope so!

doubt it
they (Iran) just bought 2 of Olympic airways four A340-300's that have sat on the ramp at ATH for 8 years since OA went under in 2009! no paperwork i gather - disgruntled OA employees destroyed the tech logs i heard - that is why OA and then the Greek Govt were never able to be sold -
2 of the 4 lovely aircraft were scrapped a year or 2 ago
