Trump announces FAA grounding all Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 planes in US
President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that the FAA would order the immediate grounding of all Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 aircraft in the U.S., a decision that comes after days of mounting pressure from other countries that left the U.S. as one of the last to make the call after a deadly crash in Ethiopia.
