A Trump campaign official who is intimately familiar with the design of the train sets that the presumptive GOP nominee is building in the state of New Jersey says the real estate mogul has little to say about the trains.
In a lengthy interview with CNNMoney, Donald Trump Jr. said he didn’t know much about the design and could not comment on it beyond “that we have no interest in them.”
But Trump Sr. did offer his own perspective on the electric trains, saying they could be a “great thing.”
“They’re very much a beautiful piece of machinery.
They’re very very beautiful,” Trump Jr., a former New Jersey governor and presidential candidate, said.
“You could see a beautiful picture coming in from the side of the tracks.
I was very happy to see that.”
The trains, which have a total of 10,000 electric motors, are designed to run on electricity and operate for up to 14 hours per day, according to the Trump campaign.
The cars can reach speeds of 70 mph (104 kph), and can go at speeds of 50 mph (80 kph) without a rider.
The trains were designed to allow for people to travel on the train and ride in the car.
The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
While Trump Jr.’s comments are a departure from Trump’s previous statements on the trains, the billionaire’s team has remained tight-lipped about the details of the electric cars.
“These trains are designed for people who can’t drive and have disabilities to take them,” Trump Sr., the son of the former president, said in a statement in July 2016.
“They’re designed to be light and efficient, and it’s the right way to do it.
They are the future of transportation and the future is right here.”
The New Jersey Department of Transportation, which oversees the state’s electric vehicle program, did not immediately respond to CNNMoney’s request for information on the design, but a spokesperson told CNNMoney the trains would not have a seating capacity of more than six people.
“The trains have no seating capacity, they have no floor space, they don’t have a platform, and they don.
They have a battery pack, which is a battery that can hold enough energy to drive the train for up at least 14 hours,” the spokesperson said.
The spokesperson also noted the trains were intended to be used for people with mobility issues, and not for people traveling on foot or on bicycles.
“This is a very large-scale project,” Trump said in July, before the announcement.
“This will be a very big project.
It will be the largest infrastructure project in the history of New York.”
A spokeswoman for the New Jersey DOT told CNN the company has not been in contact with the Trump family about the designs.
A spokesperson for the Trump presidential campaign did respond to the report, but did not provide additional details.
