Latest from the eye of the Twitter-storm: Trump tweets about Lockheed again

CHLOE

And in ongoing Trump Twitter-verse drama, the President-elect sent out another tweet Thursday afternoon, seeming to put pressure on military contractor Lockheed Martin:

After sending out two tweets that wreaked temporary havoc on Lockheed Martin and Boeing stocks, Trump met with both CEOs Wednesday at his resort in Palm Spring, Florida. Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg seemed open to negotiation, telling reporters after the meeting that the company would work to cut costs on the Air Force One.

And, of course, by making it Twitter official.

Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson did not publicly make similar concessions.

“It’s a dance, you know. It’s a little bit of a dance,” Trump told Bloomberg Wednesday. “We’re going to get the costs down and we’re going to do it beautifully.”

Could Twitter be one of Trump’s method of “beautifully” cutting costs?

Marcus Weisgerber, vice president of the Pentagon Press, seems to think so.

Lockheed Martin is a Maryland-based global aerospace and defense company with locations in Denver, Englewood and Littleton.
