Kenneth Frazier, CEO of pharmaceutical company Merck, resigned Monday morning after Trump's tepid response to a violent Nazi demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia. "As CEO of Merck and as a matter of personal conscience, I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism".

Ornstein said that many CEOs who initially agreed to join the president's advisory council are now finding that the prestige and access they obtained is outweighed by being associated with an administration frequently accused of indifference to racism.

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 CEO of athletic wear manufacturer Under Armour is resigning from the President's American Manufacturing Council, saying his company "engages in innovation and sports, not politics".

Game of Thrones episode shown in Spain, Nordics by error
Now, if you've been keeping track, this is the second " Game of Thrones " episode this season to hit the internet before air time. Twitter users were eager to see the leaked episode and joked about it happening after the hack.

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 auto into a crowd of anti-racism protesters, killing one and wounding 19.

The industry's silence comes as Trump is finalising an executive order on drug prices that would relax industry regulation and contains measures that, some say, would protect existing drug prices or even increase them.

Trump has hit back at the executives who left, claiming others would join the council.

Democrats and Republicans criticized Trump for waiting too long to address the violence - his first major domestic crisis as president - and for failing when he did speak out to explicitly condemn white-supremacist marchers who ignited the melee.

Two AIMIM MLCs suspended for refusing to stand during 'Vande Mataram' rendition
Bharatiya Janata Party corporators rushed to the well of the house and raised loud slogans against the AIMIM corporators. Earlier, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had termed the compulsion of singing Vande Mataram as "unconstitutional".

Those who leave Trump's informal circle of advisors are "making a non-partisan group more partisan", said Elson.

The heads of pharmaceutical giant Merck, the sports gear company Under Armour and the tech firm Intel chose to leave the advisory council.

Walt Disney Co. Chairman and CEO Bob Iger resigned from a White House advisory council for the same reason. The Alliance for American Manufacturing chief Scott Paul quit on Tuesday, as did the two AFL-CIO leaders.

Boston officials ready for Saturday's 'free speech' rally, counterprotests
The 383-year-old Boston Common - the nation's oldest city park - has been the site of numerous rallies and protests for centuries. Burton said there was a large police presence. "If anyone gets out of control - at all - it will be shut down".

For Trump - the grandest grandstander of all time - to accuse anyone else of grandstanding is rich. After a auto rammed into a crowd of protestors during the event, Trump's off-the-cuff response was that there was violence and blame "on many sides". "#Intel asks all our countries leadership to do the same", CEO Brian Krzanich said in a tweet. University of MI business administration professor David Ulrich says many CEOs share President Trump's agenda of deregulation and tax cuts and want it to succeed. He later said in a blog post on Intel website that he was exiting the council "to call attention to the serious harm our divided political climate is causing to critical issues". 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.
