Trump Disbands Business Advisory Council as CEOs Flee

  • Merck chief executive Kenneth Frazier

Four business leaders had already walked away from Trump's manufacturing council following the president's reaction to the protests in Charlottesville.

Two more executives quit president Trump's manufacturing council following his response to the violence in Charlottesville.

Plank's statement said Under Armour "engages in innovation and sports, not politics".

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said Monday he was resigning from President Donald Trump's American Manufacturing Council, becoming the latest executive to leave the body in the wake of the tragedy in Virginia. In announcing his resignation on Twitter, he said, "America's leaders must honor out fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry, and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal".

Although the White House did release a statement that said "of course" Trump's condemnation included "white supremacists, KKK Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups", the statement was attributed to an unnamed spokesperson.

That appeared to be a reference to Trump's statement over the weekend blaming violence "on many sides" after neo-Nazis and white nationalists clashed with counter-protesters.

Trump had another Twitter outburst over Frazier's decision Tuesday morning, before the new conference, calling executives who quit "grandstanders", while claiming others were eager to sign on.

Krzanich also said he called on leaders to condemn the white supremacists who participated in the Virginia rally.

As seen in the above photo, the CEO who is Frazier stood near President Donald Trump in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, on Thursday.

Within an hour of Merck announcing Frazier's withdrawal, Trump retorted on Twitter, "Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned. he will have more time to lower ripoff drug prices!"

"International Paper strongly condemns the violence that took place in Charlottesville over the weekend - there is no place for hatred, bigotry and racism in our society", a company spokesman said in a statement.

Over the next two days, leaders from Intel, Under Armour, the Alliance for American Manufacturing, the AFL-CIO, 3M and Campbell Soup Company also resigned.

Though the policy influence of such advisory groups is sometimes questionable, simply meeting with Trump with TV cameras going is valuable face-time for the executives - and for the president.

Trump quickly responded by bashing Frazier.

The CEOs who resigned from the White House groups earlier did so over policy disagreements, with Musk and Iger leaving in June to protest Trump's decision to withdraw the USA from the Paris worldwide agreement on climate and Kalanick departing because of the president's stance on immigration.

Larry Summers, a vocal Trump critic and former adviser to President Barack Obama, said Wednesday that wasn't good enough.

"While the AFL-CIO will remain a powerful voice for the freedoms of working people, there are real questions about the effectiveness of this council to deliver real policy that lifts working families", the organization said. After a vehicle rammed into a crowd of protestors during the event, Trump's off-the-cuff response was that there was violence and blame "on many sides".

"Usually, certain niceties are observed to smooth over a rupture", said Galston, who served as a domestic policy aide in the Clinton administration. "Hate and intolerance are a betrayal of what we stand for as Americans", said Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi in a statement that did not address the Trump panel.
