No. He is politically blameworthy because he forced the world's longest shutdown, was warned about the potential safety implications to air traffic because of that shutdown, and then we learned that Boeing had planned fixes for the plane which crashed - for months - and the implementation of those plans were delayed by Trump's shutdown. Trump wanted political credit for plane safety. He should not run from political blame for the failure of plane safety - especially when it can be so directly linked to an action that he unnecessarily took. But that's my argument. What is yours? Do you think that there is no link between this crash and Trump's decision to shut down the government?
