Trump ends manufacturing jobs council after 8 resign

The Twitterer-in-chief characteristically attacked Frazier over social media on Monday morning, and later in the evening.

Merck Pharma CEO Ken Frazier was the first to step down from the jobs council after violence erupted in Charlottesville and Trump did not repudiate white supremacist groups that organized the march. Trump had pinned the blame for the bigotry and violence - which left one anti-bigotry protester dead -"on many sides".

Frazier announced on Twitter that he is resigning from the council, saying, "America's leaders must honor our 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".

Trump then gave his more explicit statement condemning neo-Nazis and Klansmen alike.

Plank said he was resigning due to the president's initial response to the Charlottesville protests.

PHOTONews: Buhari meets with Saraki, Dogara in London
Saraki, who is the president of the Senate, was pictured with Buhari and Dogara as they laughed while discussing. Speaker Yakubu Dogara has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari's health has really improved.

Members still left on the council say they are walking a tightrope act as they attempt to shape US manufacturing policies that will better the country's position against foreign powers while fighting off constant policy changes they disagree with and that are being issued by Trump and his GOP counterparts. He did not refer to the president, though.

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich thereafter announced his departure from the council. I resigned because I wanted to make progress, while many in Washington seem more concerned with attacking anyone who disagrees with them. Paul's organization promotes US manufacturing jobs, particularly in the steel and aluminum industries - and the White House's focus on restoring old-line manufacturing, as well as recent attempts to crack down dumping these products in the USA would seem to directly align with their objectives. Trump later made specific mention of the groups Monday, then Tuesday doubled down on his earlier remarks, telling reporters at Trump Tower in NY "there is blame on both sides".

"Some of the folks that will leave, they're leaving out of embarrassment because they make their products outside" the US, he said as he seemed to double down on his earlier comments.

The tweet highlights the conundrum CEOs who are members of Trump's advisory councils have found themselves facing in recent days as they balance the rewards - and growing risks - of being associated with an unpredictable president. "No equivalence w/ those who bring us together". "#Intel asks all our countries leadership to do the same".

HORSLEY: Well, I think what we're really seeing is that people feel freer to criticize this president - Republican lawmakers and business people, too.

In addition to Krzanich's participation in Trump's advisory committee on manufacturing, he visited the White House earlier this year, and re-announced a factory development in the United States to boost Trump's favoribility. "What many companies are grappling with is there are things that are important to their employees that may be different than what's important to the bottom line", she said.

Privately, many chief executives say they are fuming, outraged by the president.

"As CEO, I will continue to strongly advocate for the important issues of diversity, tolerance, and inclusion".

China, US to further improve military ties

"They're doing great work at Merck". Another tech leader, IBM CEO Ginny Rometty, serves on a separate council, the President's Strategic and Policy Forum. Which, of course, is the reason he said I could not quote him by name. "I'm not sticking my head up".
