President Donald Trump tweeted out a lighthearted suggestion for "rebranding" the Boeing 737 MAX following two fatal crashes, and other social media users were horrified.

The president spent much of the previous day tweeting about Tiger Woods winning the Masters golf tournament, and he started Monday with a self-deprecating suggestion for the troubled aircraft manufacturer.

The aircraft was grounded worldwide last month after a fatal crash on Ethiopian Airlines that killed all 157 aboard, five months after a crash on Lion Air that killed all 189 passengers and crew.
