President Trump Will Use Obama's Old Limo For the Next Few Months

Previously, we'd heard that a new Presidential limousine would make its official debut at today's inauguration. Whether you're a Democrat or a Republican (or somewhere in between), you can't deny that limousines are fascinating, especially heavily armored ones capable of withstanding everything from machine gun fire to a chemical attack. But as it turned out, the limousine that carried President Trump on his inaugural parade was the same model that's ferried President Obama around for the past few years. Instead of riding off in an all-new limousine, Trump had to use the old Cadillac-branded, GM truck-based "Beast" that's been in service since 2009. According to Jalopnik, "an industry source with knowledge of the situation" revealed that Trump's new limo is "supposed to come later this year." Shucks. The new Cadillac hasn't, however, been delayed. The way Jalopnik's source tells it, the plan was never to debut the new limousine at the inauguration. It's reportedly still on schedule, just not coming as quickly as many of us would have expected it to.
