Under Armour and Intel CEO have also stepped down from Trump’s Manufacturing Council.
Brian Krzanich, Intel CEO, and Kevin Plank, chief executive officer for Under Armour, have followed Kenneth Frazier on stepping down Monday from President Donald Trump’s manufacturing council.
Both company leaders have made their decision hinting on the unwillingness to condemn the white supremacists.
On one side, Plank explained vía Twitter that his company engages in inspiring through sports, not politics.
However, Krzanich based his explanation on the dangerous directions the country’s administration is taking towards politics.
The third CEO to abandon the Trump Administration stated his worry on how a divided political climate is failing to address the decline of American manufacturing.
Although he also called out to condemn the white supremacists that alarmed the nation this past weekend, his statement was more directed to the way political agendas have sidelined the mission to rebuild America’s manufacturing base.
