Fifth leader resigns from
Trump´s manufacturing council

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Robin Eberhardt

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/15/2017 6:00:28 PM

The president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing has resigned from President Trump´s American Manufacturing Council, making him the fifth business leader to do so. “I’m resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it´s the right thing for me to do,” Scott Paul tweeted Tuesday. (Snip) Paul´s exit comes amid backlash over the president´s response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. Paul is joining Kenneth Frazier, the CEO of major pharmaceutical company Merck; Kevin Plank, the CEO of Under Armour; and Brian Krzanich, the CEO of Intel, who all resigned from the president’s

Comments:
These ´leaders´ are just disgraceful. It´s really pathetic that they couldn´t behave like mature adults and work for the good of their country and instead chose to behave like immature jerks. I wouldn´t own a share of stock in any of those losers´ companies. That should tell you about their character and decision making process.

President Trump should dissolve this council and make decisions without the input of these arrogant "leaders".

They know not what they do. They had incredible access to the man who will be president for years to come. A voice at his big table, and he does listen to them.

This isn’t over yet. What will the fallout be for them?

These executives must not be paying attention to what´s been happening to businesses that made the American people mad. For example - Target and Kellogg.

The CEO serves at the pleasure of the Board of Directors, which is elected by the shareholders.

Let’s see what happens here.

This last one is some sort of organization. I imagine someone there will be miffed that this guy pulled up the organization’s stake at a very important table.

Fewer customers appears to be the goal of major corporations these days. I just sent my Sam´s Club card back to Walmart after their CEO´s hectoring of Trump. Did Walmart learn nothing from Target and their PR disaster? Who does Walmart think their core customer base is: Black Lives Matter?

#4- “Wonder what their real reasons were.” Possibilities:

- Democrats at heart.
- Fearful protesters may stir violence for their corporations
- Former Clinton Treasury Secretary Larry Summers tells all CEOs to quite Trump’s advisory council.
- Perhaps persuaded by Larry Summers’ wide-ranging criticisms of President Trump.
- Perhaps deep-state intervention.

Our country is in a progressive caused mess, Mr. Trump inherited it, and Mr. Mueller and the RINOs, the Democrat political leaders, the entire deep state, and these major corporate "leaders" are voting for Globalism, and the the corruption of the existing establishment. They are voting for what sixty million Americans voted against. Whoever they think they are pleasing/pandering to, they are infuriating many millions of Americans.

The knee jerk reaction of these leaders tells me one thing. They are afraid of the media. They do not want to get on the bad side of that group of fascists. The media´s strategy has been to destroy this president because he will not bow and scrape before them. They cannot tolerate a rebellion especially from the president. They believed they had that office all sown up. They could keep any president in line and moving in their direction. Then along came Donald Trump who is combative, outwardly defiant, and gives them the same respect he received from them. He has their number and understands their game. He is fearless and they cannot allow that. These foolish business leaders know all this and have decided it is more important to appease these petty tyrants than stand in solidarity with PDT. So be it. Americans understand that the battle lines are being drawn and they choose to stand with the guy taking all the incoming. Fie on these fleeing cowards. MAGA!

This is absolutely infuriating. For two decades now, the leftists come to the defense of Islam, despite over 30,000 deadly jihad attacks and a mountain of bodies, and now damn the entire right over one victim, the disproportionality of their selective outrage and hypocrisy rising to an infuriating extreme. The left likes to pretend their side is nothing but angels, but the far left brought far more megamurder and misery to the world in the last century. Next time one calls you a nazi, you tell them Lenin!, Stalin!, Mao!, Kim Il Son!, Castro!, Ho Chi Minh!, Pol Pot!, Kim Jong Il!, Chavez!, over 100 million goddam dead, and that their putrid leftist crap stinks the whole universe.

All these Looser CEOs were looking for an appropriate time to exit the council. They realized that their cheep labor H1 B employees will be going home.

They will have to hire American resources. Hiring Americans hits the bottom line quickly as opposed to Contractor expense with the H1 B who receive no benefits, pay no SSI, State or Federal Tax. These contractors sweat shops are all over the world, India, Pakistan, and China.

Those in the sweat shops may get $5.00 per week for their effort. Workers in this environment are hopeful that one day they will be the paid contractor.

Waters was invited to deliver a eulogy at the funeral for civil rights activist and comedian Dick Gregory. However, instead of merely remembering and celebrating the life of Gregory, Waters decided to railroad President Trump, because — well, she’s Maxine Waters. “I’m cleaning out the White House,” Waters said in her typical arrogant fashion. “We’re going to sanitize the White House.” Not only did Waters not respect the tradition of giving a eulogy, but she used extreme terms like “sanitize” in order to convince

Hillary Clinton said on MSNBC Saturday that women who support President Trump are “publicly disrespecting themselves.” (VideoTweet) “When I see women doing that, I think, ‘Why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace, in a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?´” Clinton told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on AM Joy. Clinton commented about the Trump-supporting women after Reid asked her about pro-Trump women wearing shirts with profanities directed at Clinton.

Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC). The Arizona Republican declared that he couldn´t "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with block grants to states. John McCain?Verified account @SenJohnMcCain I cannot in good conscience vote for Graham-Cassidy. A bill impacting so many lives deserves a bipartisan approach. The news brought a sudden turnaround in managed-care stocks, though much of that was short-lived. Shares of Centene, whose fortunes are more tied to the ObamaCare exchanges and Medicaid

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until

Bush, ripped into President Donald Trump on Sunday for wasting his platform and his time attacking NFL players protesting by kneeling during the national anthem. “The president has two very valuable assets: his time and his voice. This president wastes it when he engages with things like this,” Rove said Sunday during a Fox News panel discussion on Trump´s recent controversial attacks of NFL players who protest for civil rights by taking a knee during the national anthem. Rove added that the president often spends time he ought to be

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell snapped back at “divisive” comments about the league Saturday, hours after President Trump urged team owners to fire players who won’t stand for the national anthem. At a political rally Friday night in Alabama, Trump griped that players who kneel for “The Star Spangled Banner” disrespect the flag and should lose their jobs.

The recent behavior of a number of spoiled, privileged, ungrateful NFL players is unacceptable to most Americans, NFL fans or not. (snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the

Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch had a harsh reaction to President Trump’s called for NFL owners to fire players who refuse to stand for the national anthem. “Comments like we heard last night from the president are inappropriate, offensive and divisive,” Mara and Tisch said in a statement Saturday. “We are proud of our players, the vast majority of whom use their NFL platform to make a positive difference in our society.” Trump initially addressed the issue during a campaign rally speech in Alabama for Senator Luther Strange, asserting that owners should fire “any son of a b—h”

As more and more leaks about the ongoing “Russian collusion” witch hunt by Robert Mueller appear in print, it seems to me that if Russia had been trying to erode our faith in our institutions, the Deep State is accomplishing what Russia failed to do. The Obama claque’s efforts were initially intended to help Clinton when they thought she would win and no one would know about their crimes. Then they continued the unlawful spying to cover up their role in the worst case of misuse of federal power in our history, to effect the removal or emasculation of the President,
