Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank Leaves Trump's Council

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank has announced his decision to leave President Trump’s manufacturing council. This move comes after President Trump’s reaction to the disastrous and horrific events in Charlottesville, VA, where White Nationalists engaged in dangerous protests with lethal results. Earlier, Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier stepped down from Trump’s council, which led to the president’s open bashing of Frazier and Merck on Twitter. Check out the statement below.
