President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that airplanes are becoming "far too complex" following an Ethiopian Airlines flight over the weekend that crashed shortly after takeoff, killing all 157 people on board.

"Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT," Trump wrote.

The president added in a second tweet: "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!"

The plane that crashed was a Boeing 737 Max 8, the same model as an ill-fated Indonesian Lion Air flight that crashed after takeoff last year, killing all 189 people on board.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Monday that U.S. airlines can still fly the model, an announcement that came as other countries such as Great Britain, Australia, China, Singapore, Indonesia and Argentina grounded the Boeing 737 Max jets.

French aviation experts see clear links in 2 Boeing crashes.
The French civil aviation investigation bureau BEA has concluded there were "clear similarities" between this month's crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX plane and a Lion Air crash last October.
