WASHINGTON.- President Donald Trump spoke today on the phone with Boeing’s CEO Dennis Muilenburg, after the president’s tweets about airplane’s new technology, according to the CNN. 

“Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better.” Wrote Trump in his Twitter, referring to the Boeing 737 MAX 8 crash in Ethiopia.

“Split second decisions are needed, and the complexity creates danger. All of this for great cost yet very little gain. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Albert Einstein to be my pilot. I want great flying professionals that are allowed to easily and quickly take control of a plane!” He finished this morning. 

However, there’s no details of the conversation between the president and Muilenburg. They talk frequently and appeared together several times during Trump’s first two years as president. 

His tweets where surely not welcome. Without the proper investigations, experts are blaming the accident to a potentially faulty new anti-stall system of the Boeing 737 MAX 8, that may have caused that the nose of the plane went downward. 

It is the second accident in less than six months involving one of these planes. Both occurred just minutes after they took off.
