Trump offers FIX for Boeing 737 MAX: Add great features & REBRAND

Trump offers FIX for Boeing 737 MAX: Add great features & REBRAND
President Trump offered some (probably unsolicited) advice to aviation giant Boeing on how to tackle the problems with its Boeing 737 MAX model after worldwide grounding. The presidential wisdom fit into a single tweet.

The self-declared “very stable genius” bragged on Monday that his knowledge of branding helped him become president, and revealed what he would do if he “were Boeing.”

“I would FIX the Boeing 737 MAX, add some additional great features, & REBRAND the plane with a new name,” Trump said. “No product has suffered like this one. But again, what the hell do I know?”

Boeing is struggling to turn the tide for the popular model which was universally grounded after two crashes left a total 346 people dead and were apparently caused by the same faulty anti-stall system. The producer is accused of cutting corners to fast-track the passenger jet to the market and failing to properly train pilots on how to deal with malfunctions.
