After meeting with Lockheed Martin’s chief executive on Wednesday about lowering the cost of its new F-35 fighter jet, President-elect Donald J. Trump expressed confidence that Pentagon officials standing with him were “good negotiators” and could “get it done beautifully.”


“As in the business world, he’s laying out this combative posture,” said Gordon Adams, who oversaw military budgets in the Clinton White House. “He’s doing it like a real estate deal. It’s amazing.”
