Trumps Ends Manufacturing Council After Members Resign

Danilo Martir | 19 Agosto, 2017, 07:59

Months of anti-immigrant rhetoric, followed by explicit anti-immigrant polices, coupled with tacit approval of white nationalism, proved inconsequential to the three CEOs who have announce their departure from President Trump's manufacturing council. Grandstanders should not have gone on.

-In this post, meanwhile, Ovid Therapeutics CEO Jeremy Levin and Decibel Therapeutics CEO Steve Holtzman called on the biopharmaceutical industry to speak up about any conflicts between itself and the agenda of the Trump Administration, regardless of the blowback it might receive from the White House. 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. CEO Brian Krzanich, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank and Alliance for American Manufacturing President Scott Paul resigned in lieu of Trump's reaction to the deadly rallies in Charlottesville, Va.

Trump bashed Frazier in a tweet on Monday, saying the CEO would "have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!"

In a weird press conference, Trump said that not all of the protesters in Charlottesville "were white supremacists by any stretch" and said the "alt-left" counter-protesters were "very, very violent".

The CEOs of Tesla, Disney and Uber had already abandoned the groups earlier this year over policy disagreements with Trump.

One suspect in Barcelona van attack dead
Oukabir's brother Driss reportedly turned himself in, telling police he was not involved and that his documents had been stolen. The five men were wearing fake suicide belts, reminiscent of those used by the recent attacks at London's Borough Market.

On Trump's right sat his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and on his left Kenneth Frazier, chief executive of the pharmaceutical giant, Merck - one of only five black CEOs of a Fortune 500 company.

One person was killed in the protests after a vehicle slammed into a crowd and multiple people were injured in that incident and in running clashes between white supremacists and those opposing them. And on Wednesday, Inge Thulin, CEO of 3M left, as did Campbell Soup CEO Denise Morrison.

"We remain resolute in our potential and ability to improve American manufacturing", Plank said in a statement.

Trump again pinned the blame for the violence on "both sides", an equivalence that has ignited criticism, even from some Republicans.

Late Monday President Donald Trump took his second shot at Merck CEO Ken Frazier.

"It is a leader's role, in business or government, to bring people together, not tear them apart", he said in a memo to employees provided to Bloomberg.

Less than an hour later, Trump lashed out on Twitter at Frazier and Merck.

Richard Trumka said the council was not a vehicle to do real policy and its members - chief executives from leading U.S. companies and other business and union leaders - never held a meeting.

The manufacturing council was created shortly after Trump's inauguration as part of a job creation initiative. He said that we need to study why people are so angry, and implied that there was hate ... on both sides!
