Trump's Boeing spat

NY Times:

Trump Attacks Plans for New Air Force One: ‘Cancel Order!’

In a message that seemed to come out of the blue, Mr. Trump took to Twitter to object to Boeing’s “$4 billion” plans for a next-generation plane.
This appears to be an issue with multiple layers.  First off, Trump is a negotiator and his opening bids are usually pretty tough.  He may be just looking for price concessions.

Then there are some issues with what Boeing has done with its profits in the political sphere.  It was a major donor to the Clintons through their foundation and directly to Hillary's campaign.

It has also been alleged that Boeing was pushing for the terrible Iran deal so that it could sell the genocidal religious bigots who rule Iran new planes which would then be converted for transporting weapons to its proxies in Syria and Yemen.
