  • AFL-CIO chief leaves Trump's manufacturing council

The defections were prompted by Trump's reaction to White supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend that killed one person and left almost 20 other victims injured after a vehicle rammed into counter-protesters. "President Trump's remarks today repudiate his forced remarks yesterday about the KKK and neo-Nazis".

Wal-Mart CEO Doug McMillon is criticizing President Donald Trump's initial response to violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, at a white supremacist rally.

Nemacolin, Greene County, native Richard Trumka, the president of the AFL-CIO, was the fifth member of the White House manufacturing council to go when he announced his resignation Tuesday.

"We're all about creating jobs and opportunities for everybody", Trumka said, but if people are excluded from the jobs "because of the way they look or who they worship or who they love", then it won't help.

Alliance president Scott Paul, in a tweet, said simply, "I'm resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it's the right thing for me to do".

North Korea and USA dial down war of words
It seems unlikely that North Korea could satisfactorily test its missiles near Guam until its capability improves. Joe Dunford reassured his counterparts that the USA was pursuing "diplomatic solutions", according to Bloomberg.

The departures have come amid criticism of the president for not initially and specifically condemning neo-Nazis after a vehicle ran into a crowd of counter-protesters at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., killing one.

On Tuesday afternoon, the president inflamed the controversy over his remarks on Charlottesville by blaming "both sides", echoing the language he had used Saturday when he faulted "many sides".

Kenneth Frazier of Merck, Kevin Plank of Under Armour and Brian Krzanich of Intel all left the group on Monday. "You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent", Trump said in a statement.

Trumka and the AFL-CIO previously said on Monday night that they were "reassessing" their involvement in the council. "Grandstanders should not have gone on", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President's Manufacturing Council, he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!
