    Trump: If I Was in Charge, I’d Simply Change the Name of Boeing 737 Max Planes

    Donald Trump has offered some unsolicited advice to Boeing, saying that if he was in charge he would simply sort the company's problems by fixing its faulty 737 Max airplanes and then sneakily changing the model's name. In a tweet which he appeared to believe displayed some level of expertise, the president said the best way out of the company's crisis would be to rebadge the 737 Max planes. “What do I know about branding, maybe nothing (but I did become President!), but if I were Boeing, I would FIX the Boeing 737 MAX, add some additional great features, & REBRAND the plane with a new name,” wrote the president, using capital letters to emphasize his favorite parts of the very obvious plan. “No product has suffered like this one. But again, what the hell do I know?” Believe it or not, but Boeing has already thought of fixing the plane's faults—it's rolling out a software fix for the automated system linked to two crashes. Let's see if they follow the president's advice with a sneaky name change.
