Sanctions was probably the wrong word.Politically, Seattle ( Boeing's hometown) and Washington state are both Democrat turf....only three Republicans out of ten Representatives. Both Washington State senators are currently Dems.
Trump doesn't give a rap about anywhere that isn't pro Trump.
Sanctions implies a concerted global action to punish an American company....don't think that is the case.
This is a safety issue. Nobody wants loaded passenger jets dropping out of the sky over their backyard.
Hairy times for Boeing CEO.
