President Donald Trump ordered an inquiry into China’s alleged theft of American intellectual property, but the problem may be hard to fix.
Merck (MRK) CEO Ken Frazier resigned in protest from the White House American Manufacturing Council on Monday, citing President Donald Trump’s failure to immediately and clearly reject the bigotry on display in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. Hours later, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank and Intel CEO Brian Krzanich followed suit, exposing themselves to the ire of a president who doesn’t hesitate to retaliate. This ultimately sparked more widespread departures from CEOs and an ultimate disillusionment of the council along with the Strategy & Policy Forum on Wednesday.
NEW YORK/WASHINGTON, Aug 16 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s turnabout on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia has rocked his administration, leading to rising speculation that some top officials may be looking for a way out. A parade of business executives broke ties with Trump on Wednesday, a day after he blamed white nationalists and counter-protesters in equal measure for the weekend clashes that left one woman dead. “A lot of us joined this administration thinking we could bring to it the experience and expertise that the president didn’t have an opportunity to gain in his business career, and to encourage some restraint in what he says publicly and to our allies,” said one senior official who is contemplating whether to resign.
