Instead, the jet takes its oldest boy, Donald Trump Jr., on a foreign missions to India. Boeing's 757 jet, probably valued at around 71 million pounds (10 million dollars), is scheduled to land in India today. The Trump Jr was sent to India to sign a contract for the sale of luxurious housing unit constructed by the Trumps.
Trump and Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, had a lively exchange last June when the couple gathered in Washington. He is hoping to intensify this partnership this week by signing the deal, which involves two 254 "ultra luxurious" unit turrets each sold for up to £1 million ($1.5 million).

Trump raises $3.9 billion with Boeing for new Air Force One
Last Tuesday Trump and Boeing leaders gathered at the White House to close the deals. First, two officers said that the president asked to build the new aircraft by 2021, the start of a second tenure that lies three years earlier than the initial 2024 schedule.
Both 747s are now in California, an officer said, and Boeing will upgrade the aircraft by then, but the Air Force's test requirement could take another three years. The president has been fixed on a new aircraft for month and has been telling his staff time and again that he wants the aircraft to be ready for his second time.
It is an open issue whether this can occur - with a long air force test period. For the White House, this is a savings of more than $1 billion compared to the initial $5 billion estimation. Trump-Twittered - just after the win of the presidency in 2016 - that the aircraft would cost 4 billion dollars, not 5 billion dollars.
One Boeing officer said that the award included work to design and construct two President airplanes, incorporating functions that are unparalleled to Air Force One, such as a communication suitcase, interior and exterior staircases, large grand cruisers and other fixtures, as well as architectural changes that have been engineered to safeguard and preserve the President and on-board personnel for an extended term.
"It is Boeing's pride to construct the next wave of Air Force One and to provide U.S. President a White House in flight at an excellent price to taxpayers," the Boeing corporation said in a declaration on Tuesday. "In the name of the United States, President Trump has brokered a good bargain. "These include some work already underway, such as engineering and construction work, as well as two 747-8s.
Part of this is also the not yet assigned engeneering, production and developing order. "â??Boeing is constructing a all-new 747 Air Force One for prospective president, but the expenses are out of hand, more than 4 billion dollars,â Trump said. In front of the teet tweeting, Trump said tellers that the Air Force One charges were "ridiculous".
" "Boeing does a little of a number, I think," Trump said. "Boeing should make a great many bucks, but not so many bucks. "The White House is promoting this $3.9 billion business because it offers over $1 billion in cost reductions, an example of Trump's business execution capabilities.
In December 2016, the new Air Force One contract was valued at 4 billion dollars. Now the White House and Boeing said that information was false, and it was actually $5 billion. Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing and Trump spoke the morning after Trump's tweeting and the chief executive announced that the airline would work to reduce the costs of the new aircraft.
"Congratulating Mr Trump on his victory, Muilenburg undertook to work with the new government to keep the cost under tight review as they set the new Air Force One requirement to keep the programme as accessible as possible and offer the best value for US taxpayers," Boeing said in December 2016.
Over a year after Trump twittered "Cancel Order", the President and Muilenburg worked out the new deals during a White House session last Tuesday. Not on the president's agenda, the encounter came after nearly a year of lower-level encounters between Pentagon purchasing officers and Boeing senior management, which sometimes came to a dead end.
Its president, who has expressed his anger about his old airplane several times, wanted to face-to-face with Muilenburg to negotiate the agreement, two officers said. The fact that the President was directly associated with the negotiation was considered rather anomalous. Meanwhile, the president asked several times at the session how quickly the airplane could be prepared, two officers said, and was set on a timeframe of at least 2021.
However, the open questions remain whether the Luftwaffe can conclude its tests and amendments by then. It was about the pricing plate for the two 747 jet aircraft that the Air Force purchased from Boeing last summers. Costs related to the modifying procedure - the transformation of standard jets into Air Force One.
"Estimated costs were always over $5 billion," said a White House official today, and added that the President-elect in 2016 benefited from "bad information". "The White House official said that the new agreement with Boeing "will be administered beyond the contractual positions that will be simultaneously bargained with this definitive agreement.
" For Boeing, it has long been imperative to maintain a good working climate with the German authorities. In 1990 the Air Force One aircraft were put into operation under the former president George H.W. Bush and almost reach the end of their lives.
