Trump blasts CEOs who quit White House panel

Trump blasts CEOs who quit White House panel

Frazier, who is African-American, is the only CEO so far to leave one of Trump's advisory councils because of his reaction to the violence in Virginia, although the AFL-CIO said it was considering pulling its representative on the committee.

Frazier said the move was "a matter of personal conscience" and that he felt "a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism".

To be technically correct, they are quitting Trump's American Manufacturing Council because they are recognizing this president is an empty, blustering suit.

Plank previously faced criticism from Warriors superstar Steph Curry, Under Armor's biggest endorer, after Plank praised Trump's election, saying, "To have such a pro-business president is something that is a real asset to this country".

The resignations came as criticism grew over Trump's slow response to the weekend demonstration which ended in bloodshed when a suspected Nazi sympathizer plowed his vehicle into a crowd of anti-racism protesters, killing one and wounding 19.

After initially casting blame "on all sides", Mr Trump made a followup statement specifically faulting racism and white nationalist groups. "JOBS!" Trump tweeted, moments before Paul announced his decision.

A third company - Merck - found themselves at the center of attention as company CEO Kenneth Frazier was bullied by Trump after leaving the council this weekend.

Barcelona attack: Search for missing boy, 7, with United Kingdom links
Some 130 people from 34 different nationalities were injured in the attacks, emergency services have revealed. The name of the first victim of the Barcelona attack has been announced as Italian Bruno Gulotta.

Not even an hour later, Trump blasted Frazier on Twitter.

A White House official downplayed the importance of the manufacturing council and a separate policy and strategy forum featuring corporate leaders.

On the conservative side, groups like the National Center for Public Policy have lambasted executives for criticizing Trump.

The anti-Trump Grabyourwallet - which boycotts companies that sell Trump products - regularly prods its 62,300 Twitter followers to email companies that still have CEOs on White House panels.

What part of good business does the "great deal maker" Donald see in flirting with Klan and the alt-right while calling out American business leaders? The CEOs who left the council quickly faced his wrath, while those who have stayed have said it's important to speak with the president on economic issues. The president did not explicitly condemn white supremacists.

Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk and Walt Disney Co CEO Robert Iger left the President's Strategic and Policy Forum, a business advisory group, in June, after Trump said he would withdraw from the Paris climate accord. The group, which Trump established in January with about two dozen members, is supposed to meet occasionally to offer the President advice on job growth.

"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.
