Eric Schultz, an aide and deputy press secretary for former President Barack Obama, said "we would have been impeached" if that administration had spent millions replacing refrigerators on Air Force One, The Hill reported Friday.

Replacing the plane's aging refrigerators will cost nearly $24 million, due to equipment requirements put in place by the White House Military Office and the Air Force, Defense One reported Wednesday.

Requirements of refrigerators on Air Force One include the need to store up to 3,000 meals on the 747 jumbo jet, supplying enough food to feed passengers and crew for weeks. Current refrigerators on the plane date to 1990.

"It's not a contractor issue, it is a requirements issue," said Richard Aboulafia, vice president of analysis at the Teal Group consulting firm. "It's not getting people rich."
