President Donald Trump mocked the Federal Aviation Administration's overhaul of the air traffic control system on Thursday and pledged to rebuild the nation's airports without hiking costs for travelers.

The criticism of the FAA comes as some members of Congress and most of the major airlines push to spin off the air traffic control operation into a separate organization, and as FAA tries to implement the long-delayed NextGen system to modernize its aging technology.

"I hear the government contracted for a system that's the wrong system," Trump told the White House gathering of airline and airport executives. "I hear we're spending billions and billions of dollars. It's a system that's totally out of whack. It's way over budget. It's way behind schedule. And when it's complete, it's not going to be a good system. Other than that, it's fantastic."
