Three CEOs Quit Trump’s Manufacturing Council After Charlottesville

By

Three business executives resigned from President Trump’s American Manufacturing Council on Monday: Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, and Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank. Frazier resigned from the council following Trump’s refusal to single out white supremacists following the deadly white nationalist rally Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, saying it was his “responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism,” while Krzanich wrote in a blog post he is stepping down to “call attention to the serious harm our divided political climate is causing to critical issues, including the serious need to address the decline of American manufacturing.” Plank said in a statement he’s leaving in order to “focus on inspiring and uniting through power of sport.”
