Earlier Monday, with the Notre Dame Cathedral engulfed in flames, Trump took to Twitter to weigh in on the massive fire and suggest that "flying water tankers" be used in response.
 
"So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!" Trump tweeted.
Earlier Monday, French officials also rejected Trump's advice. France's Sécurité Civile, the civil defense and crisis management agency, said in a tweet that "all means" were being used to put out the fire, "except for water-bombing aircrafts which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral.”
 
Authorities investigating the cause of the fire said Monday that Notre Dame had been saved from "total destruction" after they originally feared the fire might destroy the entire building. 
 
Trump on Monday morning also offered "branding" advice to Boeing on the company's recovery from two accidents involving the 737 Max airplane.
