US manufacturer, Boeing is planning to restart production of the grounded 737 Max in May.
Boeing suspended production of the troubled aircraft in January due to a lack of regulatory approvals and a 400 plane order backlog.
“We’re not letting Boeing go out of business. You have to help them temporarily. It’s not going to be a long time, temporarily”, President Donald Trump said.
“And they’re going to pay interest and they’re probably going to give stock in their company to the people of our country, to the taxpayers of our country, to the citizens of our country”.
The 737 Max has been grounded for over a year after the model suffered two fatal crashes, which took the lives of 346 people.
“We are continuing to assess our progress towards completing milestones to return the 737 MAX to service, and will make determinations about resuming production and deliveries accordingly”, A Boeing spokesperson said.
