Several corporate leaders had announced they were resigning from the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum as well as a separate manufacturing council in recent days after Trump was slow to condemn white supremacy groups. But on Twitter, Trump said it was his decision to disband both councils.
Trump’s Remarks and Reactions
“I know times are tough for many. The lack of economic growth and opportunity has led to deep and understandable frustration among so many Americans. But fanning divisiveness is not the answer.”
— Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase
Trump’s Remarks and Reactions
“Following yesterday's remarks from the president, I cannot remain on the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative.”
— Denise Morrison, CEO of Campbell Soup
Trump’s Remarks and Reactions
“I joined the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative in January to advocate for policies that align with our values and encourage even stronger investment and job growth. ... I believe the initiative is no longer an effective vehicle for 3M to advance these goals.”
— Inge Thulin, 3M chairman and president
Trump’s Remarks and Reactions
“Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both. Thank you all!”
— President Trump
As politicians in the United States react with varying degrees of outrage to Trump's shifting remarks on Charlottesville, the president's response has also earned him a wave of backlash from world leaders.
