U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said on Thursday that because of the high cost of Lockheed Martin Corp's (LMT.N) F-35 fighter, he had asked Boeing Co (BA.N) to offer a price for a "comparable F-18 Super Hornet.""Based on the tremendous cost and cost overruns of the Lockheed Martin F-35, I have asked Boeing to price-out a comparable F-18 Super Hornet!," Trump wrote on Twitter.
