President Trump has issued a statement that his Boeing 757, which was often used to take him to political rallies during the successful 2016 campaign for the presidency, is currently being "fully restored and updated" before being put back into service prior to the end of this year. 

The plane, which was built in 1991 and which Trump purchased from Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen in 2010, was used during Trump's White House years for executive trips by The Trump Organization until 2019 when it was put in storage in Orange County, New York, about 60 miles from Manhattan, according to CNN

Trump's statement was issued through his Save America PAC: 

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

"Many people have asked about the beautiful Boeing 757 that became so iconic during the Trump rallies. It was effectively kept in storage in Upstate New York in that I was not allowed to use it during my presidency. It is now being fully restored and updated and will be put back into service sometime prior to the end of the year. It will soon be brought to a Louisiana service facility for the completion of work, inspection and updating of Rolls-Royce engines, and a brand new paint job. When completed, it will be better than ever, and again used at upcoming rallies!"
