Additional CEOs leave Trump

Two more CEOs resigned on Wednesday from an advisory council to President Trump over the president’s remarks about violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

Inge Thulin, 3M’s chairman of the board, president and CEO, and Campbell’s CEO Denise Morrison became the tenth and eleventh business leader — and the seventh and eighth since Monday — to resign from Trump’s Manufacturing Advisory Council, following the president’s controversial remarks on neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

The most recent wave of defections followed the president’s controversial remarks equating neo-Nazis and white supremacists with anti-racist protesters.

    From one perspective, it may be better politics with voters for Trump to be seen as at odds with major corporations.

    Good. Draining the swamp. They were in it for themselves anyway….

    It is difficult to believe that scions of business like those on President Trump’s advisory panel for business could be so blind as not to see the correlation between all sides of what went on in Charlottesville. From the Antifa, BLM on one side and the Nazi, KKK on the other side are not equally wrong in what they are doing. Where were the anti-racists? Did they do any good at all? All I saw was a lot of screaming, fighting, and obnoxious behavior and that was what President Trump was saying. Yes, and that caused the “rats” do desert what they think is a sinking ship. Far from it if we conservatives have anything to do with it.

    Not the kind of guys you’d want in a foxhole with you. Gonna be funny when Trump and 75% of Congress give the middle class a huge tax break and then give the big corporations nada. Talk about karma or got’cha you worthless sob, pos CEO’s. You guys lied about bringing back to America a big chunk of the $billion$ you have stashed off shore. And then you guys walk out on me because the MSM is calling me a racist. Well eff you! And thus, President Trump, gets the last laugh. Payback’s a b*tch, eh!

    These business leaders have watched as Trump was savaged based upon a lie and they wanted no part of it. Our corrupt fake news organizations have ignored what actually happened in favor of a story that allows them to continue savaging Trump. The business leaders saw the writing on the wall and got out while the getting was good (a symptom of no or very tiny balls).
