Trump says the F-35 program and cost 'out of control'


U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said on Monday the cost of Lockheed Martin's F-35 fighter jet program is too high and that he would save billions on that once he takes office.

"The F-35 program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20th," Trump said on Twitter.
