Trump Admin Flip-Flops, Suddenly Decides To Ground Boeing 737 Planes
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has suddenly changed its mind and decided to ground Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 planes.
The FAA had insisted that the planes were safe even after the models were grounded in the European Union, China, Canada and numerous other countries.
Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Jacobs tweeted President Donald Trump’s statement:

“The safety of the American people and all people is our paramount concern,” Trump says. “Hopefully they will very quickly come up with the answer but until they do the planes are grounded.”
