Trump’s business advisory council was hit on Tuesday by its fourth resignation in three days, the wake of his ill-advised handling of the Charlottesville riots. Scott Paul, president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, resigned after a raft of departures by CEOs heading large US corporations. The heads of computer giant Intel, sports clothing company Under Armour and Merck, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, stepped down in protest on Monday. It’s not hard to alienate Americans. Surround yourself with Neo-nazis, like Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller, claimed as a mentee by Richard Spencer, who is an avowed open white nationalist and Sebastian Gorka who “wore the medal of Vitézi Rend, a Nazi organization,” and its pretty clear why Republicans and Democrats would run away.
Ken Frazier, CEO of Merck, resigned. He left after Bob Iger, the head of Disney, and Tesla’s Elon Musk, both left. Neither wanted to be associated with the White House after Trump pulledoutof the Paris climate change deal.
The former CEO of Uber, Travis Kalanick, resigned in February after coming under pressure from employees and customers over Mr Trump’s travel ban.
People can’t run away from Trump Fast Enough!
