Boeing 737 Max jets grounded by FAA emergency order, Trump says

President Donald Trump announced an emergency order from the Federal Aviation Administration on Wednesday grounding Boeing 737 Max jets in the wake of the Ethiopian Airlines crash Sunday and the Lion Air accident in October that together killed 346 people.

His announcement came as the FAA has faced mounting pressure from aviation advocates and others to ban flights of the planes pending the completion of investigations into the crash Sunday that killed 157 people and the accident in Indonesia in October in which 189 people perished.
