Trump Rips Merck CEOFor Leaving Jobs Council In Wake Of Charlottesville Response


CEO Kenneth Frazier announced his resignation Monday morning from the American Manufacturing Council, saying:

“America’s leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal.”

“Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President’s Manufacturing Council, he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!” he wrote. Read more at FOX News.



  1. So many CEOs have resigned Trump’s councils that he’s been forced to disband them. Yet Trump has so far only personally criticized one of them. I wonder why he chose to specifically call out Mr. Frazier. I suppose he must be different in some way from the other CEOs, but how? Does anyone have any insights to offer? Maybe looking at their photographs will give me a clue.

    (I don’t think his criticism is really about drug prices, or he would’ve disavowed Martin Shkreli’s support long ago).
