WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump said on Tuesday (Mar 24) that he would not let airplane manufacturer Boeing Co go out of business as a result of the economic disruption caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

"We're not letting Boeing go out of business," Trump said in a Fox News interview. "You have to help them temporarily. It's not going to be a long time, temporarily."

"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," Trump said.
