Trump orders all Boeing 737 MAX to the ground

SOUNDBITE: U.S PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP (ENGLISH) SAYING: "We will be issuing an emergency prohibition to ground all flights of the 737 MAX 8 and the 737 MAX 9." President Trump announced Wednesday the United States is finally joining the rest of the world in banning the use of the Boeing plane involved in two crashes in five months.

The latest: A sunday flight of Ethiopian Airlines which killed all 157 people on board.

Trump made the right call, says John Samuelsen, president of the union representing flight attendants and mechanics.

SOUNDBITE: JOHN SAMUELSEN, PRESIDENT, TRANSPORT WORKERS UNION (ENGLISH) SAYING: "He bucked the FAA, he bucked the airline industry.

I know the CEO of Boeing personally reached out to President Trump and he did the right thing grounding this fleet both for air travelers and for aviation workers." For days, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration seemed reluctant to order the ban, standing by major U.S. manufacturer - Boeing, while ever major global regulator stopped the planes from flying.

Boeing said it supported the U.S. decision Wednesday to park the plane and continues to have full confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX.

Pressure has been mounting from airline passengers, workers, and other governments.

Earlier, Canada said it had no choice but to ground the fleet after reviewing incoming data.

Canadian transport Minister Marc Garneau: SOUNDBITE: MARC GARNEAU, TRANSPORT MINISTER, CANADA (ENGLISH) SAYING: "This is new information that we received and analyzed this morning comes from validated satellite tracking data suggesting a possible, although unproven, similarity in the flight profile of the Lion Air aircraft and I caution that this new information is not conclusive and that we must await further evidence hopefully from the data and voice recorders." Even though the black boxes were discovered on Monday, analysis has yet to be done.

Before the U.S. announcement, Ethiopian Airlines was reluctant to hand the black boxes over to the FAA and approached Germany to conduct the probe.

But Germany turned down the request, saying it didn't have the technology to do the analysis.
