Merck and Under Armour CEOs Quit

In addition to them, I just saw another one quit on my Twitter feed. Wow. Merck was kind of no surprise because Trump has been critical of them in the past. But if they're all gonna start jumping ship over this overblown reaction to Charlottesville, I'd say none of them were serious about changing the business environment in this country in the first place. They got their publicity, they want to change things and help the working class, now they got an easy out so they can continue business as usual.

The truth speaks quietly to even those that can hear. The world is full of trickery.

You're 100% correct. They were just looking for an excuse to leave, so they could continue screwing over consumers, without any pressure to stop.

I can't wait to see the parting Tweet that the Under Armor CEO gets. What do they make, bullet-proof vests?

Add the CEO of Intel

www.cnbc.com...

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich quits Trump's manufacturing council



Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has become the third executive to leave President Donald Trump's American Manufacturing Council in less than 24 hours.





"I have already made clear my abhorrence at the recent hate-spawned violence in Charlottesville, and earlier today I called on all leaders to condemn the white supremacists and their ilk who marched and committed violence," he continued.

So you don't know what at least one of these companies makes but you're certain that parting ways with Trump's manufacturing council indicates a desire to "continue screwing over consumers?"

Don't you think that perhaps that belief is a probably more an emotional reaction?

Under Armor makes sports apparel btw.

That one is interesting, along with the pharma company. UA, does anyone GAF?

I'm wondering if Trump is further hampering the outsourcing of materials and labor or if this is all a social matter.

Hypocrite of a very high order.

Disney CEO becomes second exec to bail on Trump

Yes, they took those positions thinking it would help their companies. So true.
The promise from Trump was that he would be the spearhead of an economic boom.
Over and over he promised to find the best and the brightest and reestablish a robust environment for American business.

But maybe now they no longer believe him to be that solid a bet. Maybe they can see that the robust business environment he promised is turning into cheap carney and Trump a sideshow barker.

Yes, Intel, that was the 3rd one I saw. He was probably getting all kinds of flack from his Silicon Valley kin for cooperating with Trump, you know he was itching for an excuse to bail.

Yeah and they just happened to realize this as the President is taking a bunch of bogus heat over Charlottesville.

They made political decisions, which is exactly what they're bitching about Washington being all about. #in hypocrites.

Rats, Underarmor, who's appeal is made in 3rd world countries, is off the counsel? So their "unique" perspective of slave labor expoitation selling to 1st world consumers is going to be sorely missed.

It could also be that, people don't leave bad jobs, they leave bad leaders.

yep, Disney too...

It does seem to be a trend. Trump had to chose between his alt right base or the business leaders. Trump made his choice and now has to live with it.

I think that the CEOs realized that the Trump train is off the rails and they wanted off.

Please people, I beg you to understand this principle: without "now, govt. regulation of mandatory" 40 hour week and a guarantee of 2 years employment with possible "joining the company" these temporary agencies got to be regulated with this type of law. You can't have part time workers and expect growth. Japan is a classic example of the part time workers, its slowly turning into a land of "just giving up" type of young people. Today they catch more old people shop lifting then ever before. These young kids are next in line.

I guess you're still pretending he didn't denounce the neo-Nazis and racists. Pathetic. People like you who have a desperate need to be outraged over nothing are why these CEOs are having to quit to protect their company names. Get a life, I promise it'll be ok if you go a day or two without being offended at something.
