https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...nes-tweet-a8820991.html?utm_source=reddit.com There is so much to the Boeing 737 Max story and while the company will bear a massive brunt of the economic damage, Trump ought to suffer political damage - even if he has (finally) issued an order to ground the planes in the United States. The grounding came several hours after the plane was grounded by air traffic agencies around the world and that delay, was quite possibly a reflection of the close and cozy relationship between Trump and Boeing's CEO who spoke with Trump on the phone after Trump spouted some idiocy on twitter about older planes being better. Trump is - after all - an expert in the "older and simpler" field. And now we are learning that fixes to this plane have been in the works for months and were delayed by Trump's record breaking shutdown. Golly, it's almost like government shutdowns have a negative ripple effect. Who da thunk?! So why does Trump hate planes? Because they can fly over his walls.
