Under Armour, Merck and Intel CEOs Bolt From Trump Job Council

The CEOs of Under Armour, Merck and Intel bolted from President Trump’s jobs manufacturing council following criticism of the president’s initial response to the violence at a rally in Charlottesville over the weekend.

USA Today reports:

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank said late Monday he’s stepping down from President Trump’s manufacturing job council, joining Merck and Intel in distancing his company from the administration following Trump’s widely criticized response to white nationalists’ rally at Charlottesville.

“We remain resolute in our potential and ability to improve American manufacturing,” Plank said in a statement. “However, Under Armour engages in innovation and sports, not politics.”

The CEOs are not leaders but are bowing to the winds of the left-wing mob.
