VTV.vn - US President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that the country will ground Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9 airplanes.

The move comes amid mounting pressure to ground the Boeing 737 MAX 8, which have been involved in two catastrophic crashes in the past six months.

Over the weekend, an Ethiopian Airlines crash killed 157 people, while a Lion Air accident in October left 189 dead. One day earlier, the US Federal Aviation Administration has stated that there was no reason for the airlines to stop using the 737 Max. However, it changed its mind due to new evidence gathered at the crash site. Currently, more than 40 countries have suspended flights by the plane.
