Trump says he has signed an order to ground Boeing 737 MAX 8

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he signed an order to ground the Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes involved in two recent catastrophic crashes.

"Those planes are grounded effective immediately," Trump told reporters at the White House. "The safety of the American people, of all people, is our paramount concern."

The U.S. was the only nation still flying the Boeing 737 planes after Canada announced Wednesday that it was grounding the aircraft. The plane was involved in an Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday that killed 157 people.

The Federal Aviation Administration previously stood by the safety of the Boeing 737, saying it hadn't found any issues at fault with the jetliner that would merit a grounding order.
