Trump Tries to Make the Planes Run on Time

The president announced his plan to privatize air traffic control.

President Trump announced his plan to privatize air traffic control at an event on Monday, promising to improve traveler experience by reducing delays.

“We will launch this air travel revolution by modernizing the outdated system of air traffic control,” Trump said. “It’s about time!”

“Our plan will get you where you need to go more quickly, more reliably, more affordably, and yes, for the first time in a long time, on time,” the president promised.

Trump said that his administration’s air traffic reforms will bring the system “into the future.”

“For too many years, our country has tolerated unacceptable delays at the airport, long wait times on the tarmac, and a slowing of commerce and travel that costs us billions and billions of dollars in lost hours and lost dollars themselves,” he said.

Trump’s proposal is a part of an infrastructure plan that he has seeks to kick off this week. The president promised on the campaign trail to modernize U.S. infrastructure.
