|Trump loses allies after his tepid response to the terrorist attack in Charlottesville.|
As he returned to New York to Trump Tower, the inept leader contemplate how to fix a mess he's created after a weekend of fuck ups!
The Republican leader finally addressed the Charlottesville terrorist attack in a proper fashion.
But the damage is done.
Donald J. Trump loses an ally to his cause. He gets angered at the CEO of Merck Pharmaceutical. He resigned from the American manufacturing council.
Ken Frazier was not happy about the tepid response of the inept leader in regards to Charlottesville.
"I am resigning from the President's American Manufacturing Council. Our country's strength stems from its diversity and the contributions made by men and women of different faiths, race, sexual orientations and political beliefs."
"America's leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and groups supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal. As CEO of Merck and as a matter of personal conscience, I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism."
Trump got angry at this.
Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President's Manufacturing Council,he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2017
.@Merck Pharma is a leader in higher & higher drug prices while at the same time taking jobs out of the U.S. Bring jobs back & LOWER PRICES!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2017
People quickly pounced on the social media outburst. Many were quick to point out that Trump was so eager to criticize a Black CEO. Yet he's scared to call out white extremists and Vladimir Putin.
That also riled up Kevin Plank. The CEO of Under Armour has pulled out of the Trump economic manufacturing committee.
Plank also caught flack from many athletes for taking on a role with Trump. He said that Trump's remarks were too much for him to handle as well.
"I joined the American Manufacturing Council because I believed it was important for Under Armour to have an active seat at the table and represent our industry. We remain resolute in our potential and ability to improve American manufacturing. However, Under Armour engages in innovation and sports, not politics. I am appreciate of the opportunity to have served, but have decided to step down from the council. I love our country and our company and will continue to focus my efforts on inspiring every person that hey can do anything through the power of sport which promotes unity, diversity, and inclusion."
And tonight, Brian Krzanich of Intel also pulled out as well.
"I resigned to call attention to the serious harm our divided political climate is causing to critical issues, including the serious need to address the decline of American manufacturing. Politics and political agendas have sidelined the important mission of rebuilding America's manufacturing base."
This shit doesn't get better. He retweets a news clip from a white supremacist.
Meanwhile: 39 shootings in Chicago this weekend, 9 deaths. No national media outrage. Why is that? https://t.co/9Crutnnrp8— Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) August 14, 2017
Trump is truly a disgrace to the country.
