First off, the article's title was too long. I had to clip parts of it and that is why the thread title doesn't match the article title.
Trump’s business advisory councils disband as chief executives repudiate president over Charlottesville views
So over the last few days members of Trump's business council have been quitting, but it looks like over lunch just now Trump had to finally kill it off. Apparently none of them agree with Trump's moral relativism of trying to falsely equivalize Nazis and the counterprotesters. Pretty much EVERYONE is coming out against Trump's words here. Nazis are bad. How is that so hard for the guy to get?

President Trump’s relationship with the American business community suffered a major setback on Wednesday as the president was forced to shut down his major business advisory councils after corporate leaders repudiated his comments on the violence in Charlottesville this weekend.

Trump announced the disbanding of the two councils — the Strategy & Policy Forum and the Manufacturing Council, which hosted many of the top corporate leaders in America — amid a growing uproar by chief executives furious over Trump's decision to equate the actions of white supremacists and protesters in remarks Tuesday at Trump Tower.

Earlier Wednesday, the CEOs of Campbell Soup and the conglomerate 3M resigned from the manufacturing council. “Racism and murder are unequivocally reprehensible and are not morally equivalent to anything else that happened in Charlottesville,” Campbell Soup chief executive Denise Morrison said. “I believe the president should have been — and still needs to be — unambiguous on that point.”

As the number of resignations swelled, Trump announced on Twitter afternoon that he'd shut down the councils. “Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum. I am ending both,” he wrote.

Trump's supporters may be ok with him normalizing Nazism but the rest of world sure as hell isn't and his Presidency is starting to suffer for it. I applaud the businessmen and women that stood up to Trump's thuggery and told him that he is wrong. Both sides weren't equally guilty on Saturday. The Nazis need to be denounced.

You know what's truly logic defying and the biggest mark that the US President is an utter tool and probably a racist? He'd rather hold onto the monsters AMONG his supporters than risk a temporary drop in his support than reach out to the rest of the country.

This is a huge blow, this wasn't his choice but him trying to save face. His losing all moderate support.

I am glad these CEO's are outing themselves personally. Now I know what companies NOT to spend my money with.

Yes. This is going to severely set his relations with the business community back and really stunt his chances for infrastructure and tax changes. Two things which already had a slim-and-none chance of passing just had their chances worsened.

Well we can't help people that ignore literally everything Trump's says or does and twist his words to confirm their own narrative and bias. It's pointless to argue with someone who just ignores facts and chooses to believe in his or her own delusions to justify his or her hate for Trump. Anti-Trump people are apparently not capable of acknowledging that he did nothing wrong this time. People hear and read what they want to hear and there is no way in preventing them from doing that but i for one will still be here and rectify lies and fiction that others are purposely spreading.

The fact they are distancing themselves from 45* is a darn good reason to support their companies, IMHO

Morons!

People ignore facts.

They only wanna hear and believe what they want.

Here's a fact. Back in 2000!



Is this anything like when Obama wouldn't call out radical islam?

Or maybe how he invited BLM to the white house, after they called for dead cops?

Ya cant fix stupid.

Really? So I'm just making # up that his entire business council board has been quitting the board over the last few days because of the things he said? This is all in my mind? Yeah right. Wake up. This isn't just me or anti-Trump supporters. Trump crossed a line the other day that he shouldn't have crossed and you guys are too sycophantic to call him on it.

No. He gave a tepid denouncement on Monday which he walked back on Tuesday by equalizing the actions of the left with the actions of the Nazis. That wasn't "denouncing over and over and over" except maybe in Bizzarro world.

I bet if you read his speech in context, and not resorted to tearing little statements from the context so fallaciously, almost as if it was fed to you by propagandists and not your own brain, you'd see no moral reletavism.

I bet you it doesn't matter how I read the words because his business council still quit over them. It's funny how you guys are acting like how it is MY interpretation of these words that caused this news. Nope. These businessmen quit on their own. You guys just need to get right with the fact that Trump #ed up.

Good point.
Anti-Trump people are not capable of facing the truth in any scenario.
I am finding it harder and harder to stomach these clowns and their blatant disregard of the facts.
They are pushing this country to the brink of civil war, I have no doubt that it is coming.

So these morons had some hand in directing the future of the country, but decided to use this faux outrage as an excuse to make things worse.

Congratulations idiots.

And here comes the "what about hillary?" deflection. Right on cue. Can't have any negative press about Trump without dragging Hillary's name into the mix.

Explain this to me

No.
