After Charlottesville, tech leaders stick with Trump councils

After Charlottesville, tech leaders stick with Trump councils

But notably, not one executive on any of the president's various councils said anything directly about the president, nor resigned either in solidarity with Frazier or in protest of Trump's words.

Morrison said in the statement that after Trump's remarks Tuesday, she is not able to "remain on the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative".

Some people carrying Confederate flags and giving Nazi salutes protested the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee when violence erupted. Trump later made specific mention of the groups Monday, then Tuesday doubled down on his earlier remarks, telling reporters at Trump Tower in NY "there is blame on both sides". "And I have no doubt about it".

Richard Trumka, president of AFL-CIO, said, "I can not sit on a council for a President that tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism; I resign, effective immediately".

By contrast, CEOs who quit the manufacturing council for political reasons risk a barrage of angry tweets from Trump and may have less leverage to pursue their corporate goals in Washington down the road. "I hope this will change, and I remain willing to serve when it does".

Thulin's defection follows this week's resignations by fellow manufacturing CEOs from Merck Pharmaceutical, Intel, Under Armour, the AFL-CIO and the Alliance For American Manufacturing. Should they remain, keeping their seat at a table that could help them influence policy decisions, rather than possibly passing it up to a competitor? "Now, for many of them, the actions Trump is taking violate core principles that not only their companies, but they themselves, have".

After the white nationalist rally turned deadly on Saturday, Trump initially said that many sides were to blame. "However, Under Armour engages in innovation and sports, not politics".

He also had lashed out at the original CEOs who quit the council, calling them "grandstanders".

Morrison joins a list of other business leaders who resigned from advisory councils since the weekend's violence in Virginia. Demonizing ethnic groups? That has happened. The departures, the official said, were unlikely to hurt the administration's plans to overhaul taxes and regulations.

But those potential benefits must be balanced by a growing expectation of companies to take a stand on social issues. But his decision to leave the American Manufacturing Council appears to have produced the opposite effect. That hashtag accrued more than 28 million impressions over the past two days, according to data from the analytics firm Brandwatch. Millennial employees have also been shown to value "activist" CEOs.

Austan Goolsbee, the former chief economist for President Barack Obama, said the departures suggest the president's response to the violence in Charlottesville could alienate those who work for the companies, and those who buy the products and services that they sell.

Indeed, Trump's vitriol against Frazier and Merck - a company that depends on the government as a buyer for many of its drugs - will perhaps have an even greater chilling effect on other CEOs who may consider speaking out. Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, senior associate dean for leadership studies at the Yale School of Management, said "too many of them are sitting there like potted plants, being used for P.R. photo opps and insisting afterward their presence is not an implied endorsement". "If they don't feel they get much in return, then is it worth it?"
