MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Four CEOs resigned from President Donald Trump's manufacturing council after the president failed to mention white supremacist groups by name.
The CEOs from Intel, Under Armour, American Alliance, and Ken Frazier from Merck, the council's only African American, all resigned following Trump's response to the events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday.
"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides. On many sides," Trump said.
Monday, President Trump spoke again and specifically condemned the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists.
Right now, International Paper remains on the president's manufacturing council along with nearly two dozen other CEO's.
International Paper, headquartered in Memphis, released a statement on the matter:
President Trump has since responded to the resignations, saying the CEOs "are not taking their jobs seriously" and are "leaving out of embarrassment."
