Though the United States has yet to ground the planes, Americans are settling on embargoes of their own.
Don’t fly on this Boeing 737 until otherwise

Yah. Well, I refuse to get on one of those.

Trump has yet to make a final decision on whether or not to ground the planes, with more meetings expected on Wednesday afternoon.
We can only hope he weighs his options more diligently than taking a substantial corporate donor at his word.
Update: This piece has been updated to reflect that, after massive public outcry, the President has said he will ground the Boeing 737 Max 8 until its safety can be assessed.
