Trump tweeted Monday that if he were in charge of Boeing, he would “FIX” the plane, “add some additional great features, & REBRAND the plane with a new name.” He adds: “No product has suffered like this one.”
Trump, who brands his hotels, golf courses and buildings with the Trump name, tweeted sarcastically, “what the hell do I know about branding, maybe nothing (but I did become President!)”
Airlines and countries around the world have grounded the Boeing 737 Max or banned it from airspace after an Ethiopian Airlines crash last month. A crash involving the same model happened off Indonesia in October.
Trump once owned a short-lived airline: Trump Shuttle.
