President Trump Disbands Manufacturing Council And The Strategy And Policy Forum

President Donald Trump announced via twitter he would disband the American Manufacturing Council and the Strategy and Policy Forum Wednesday.

This announcement comes amid growing backlash for the President’s initial comments towards a white nationalist rally that left at least three dead over the weekend and more recently his comments defending his earlier comments in a press conference at Trump Towers Tuesday.

Greg Hayes of United Technologies was the latest to resign from the council this week. Kenneth Frazier, CEO of Merck was the first to resign from the council this week.

Among the others who left the council were Kevin Plank of Under Armour, Brian Krzanich of Intel, Scott Paul of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, Richard Trumka and Thea Lee of the AFL-CIO, Inge Thulin of 3M and Denise Morrison of the Campbell Soup Company.
