US President Donald Trump issued an emergency order grounding all Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 aircraft. The order came in wake of the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash that killed 157 people. Many nations in the world had already barred the Boeing 737 Max 8 from its airspace. Trump said the pilots and airlines have been notified. “The safety of the American people and all people is our paramount concern. Our hearts go out to all of those who lost loved ones, to their friends, to their families in both the Ethiopian and the Lion airlines crashes that involved the 737 MAX aircraft. It’s a terrible, terrible thing,” said Donald Trump.
