Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao distanced herself from President Donald Trump’s searing assessment of the U.S. air-traffic system in her testimony before a House committee on a plan to strip it out of government.

"They are protecting our safety," Chao said Thursday in response to a lawmaker’s question about Trump’s criticism of the performance of the Federal Aviation Administration’s air-traffic controllers. "Those are not my words."

President Donald Trump announced Monday an initiative to reform the nation’s air traffic control system, which he said is woefully behind the times.

“At a time when every passenger has GPS technology in their pockets, our air traffic control system still runs on radar and ground-based radio systems that they don’t even make anymore, they can’t even fix anymore, and many controllers must use slips of paper to track our thousands and thousands of planes that are up in the air,” Trump said.

WASHINGTON -- Several lawmakers questioned Tuesday whether to move air-traffic control from the Federal Aviation Administration to a private corporation, after recent airline debacles.

The comments came at a House Transportation Committee hearing about customer service, after United Airlines dragged a passenger off a flight April 9 to make room for a crew member.

Lawmakers also argued that occasional computer problems at multiple airlines force the cancellation of thousands of flights, for lack of technological investment by airlines.
