As we reported on ILoveMyFreedom.org earlier today, President Trump is making major strides on other projects during his time in Vietnam. Killing two birds with one stone!
According to ABC News, Trump and Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Trong presided over the signing of several trade deals in Hanoi on Wednesday, including a major deal involving the Vietnamese purchasing 110 Boeing planes worth $12.7 billion.
The huge deal not only brings billions of dollars back to the United States, it also came just before the president’s high-stakes meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the Vietnamese capital.
“Hopefully great things will happen later on with our meeting but a lot of good things are happening before, and that’s the signing of trade deals with the United States, and we appreciate it very much,” Trump told Nguyen.
Here’s more from ABC News on the deal:
In the biggest of the deals, Chicago-based aircraft manufacturer Boeing Co. said it is selling 100 of its 737 MAX planes to Vietnamese low-cost carrier Vietjet. The privately owned carrier operates domestic and regional flights using Airbus planes.
Boeing and Vietjet said their deal was worth $12.7 billion at list prices. Airlines typically negotiate discounts for bulk orders.
Vietjet is doubling down on its bet for the 737 MAX, which is an updated version of the workhorse single-aisle 737 model. It already had 100 of the planes on order following a 2016 deal, though none have been delivered so far.
The deal marks a major confidence boost for Boeing, which has faced questions about the plane’s safety since a 737 MAX 8 operated by Indonesia’s Lion Air plunged into the Java Sea just minutes after taking off from Jakarta on Oct. 29, killing everyone on board.
So there you have it! Trump is has already done great things for our country while in Vietnam, and he’s just getting started.
