In February, the Air Force requested $800.9 million in fiscal 2021 for the "VC-25B Presidential Aircraft Recapitalization program," which would swap out the current planes for modified Boeing 747-8s and paint them with a white top half, blue bottom third and red stripe down the middle.

"[W]e are certainly aware of the White House military units proposal that has been submitted to them about reconsidering the color scheme of Air Force One," Psaki said to reporters.

"I can confirm for you here, the president has not spent a moment thinking about the color scheme of Air Force One or anything in the House or any article of anything. And no one is going to submit a decision memo to him on that particular topic," she added.

The aircraft's current blue and white color scheme was designed by President John F. Kennedy and first lady Jackie Kennedy.

"We're aware of the proposal and as there are any updates we are happy to provide them to you," Psaki concluded.
