Boeing could still step in as a potential competitor for future fighter jet contracts.
President Donald Trump announced Monday that weeks of negotiation with Lockheed Martin prompted the defense contractor to cut about $600 million from the F-35 program.
Trump failed to clarify how the savings were calculated or if the contract with Lockheed will change. He did say the savings will apply to the next lot of 90 jets, after which Boeing will step in as a potential competitor for future fighter jet contracts.
