A report from the DC insider yentas at Axios suggests that President Donald Trump is considering a new "more American" look for Air Force One compared to its current pain job, which the president described as "Jackie Kennedy color".

The White House announced in February that it struck a deal with Boeing over the development of two new Air Force One planes.

"It's just the concern that President Trump the showman is going to go too far with changing the look of this iconic plane that so many people are familiar with and a lot of people wonder why do it?"

He added to Axios, "JFK and Jackie Kennedy approved that timeless design (created pro bono by the premier mid-20th century industrial designer Raymond Loewy) to replace an earlier version of Air Force One that had simply said "MILITARY AIR TRANSPORT SERVICE" and which made conspicuous use of the color orange, which Kennedy rightfully found 'gaudy'".
