“As a Matter of Personal Conscience” Ken Frazier head of Merck pharmaceuticals Steps Down from Presidents Council

WASHINGTON ― A CEO serving on President Donald Trump’s council on manufacturing announced his resignation early Monday from the White House panel, in protest of Trump’s continued silence on the white nationalist groups who incited Saturday’s deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

President Trump in response took to twitter to criticize the CEO for quitting his council

Ken Frazier, the head of Merck pharmaceuticals, said in a statement he was stepping down “as a matter of personal conscience” and “to take a stand against intolerance and extremism.”
