As businesses quit Trump’s economic panels, ASBC welcomes principled companies willing to stand up for their values

The President recently announced via Twitter that he would disband the Administration’s Manufacturing Council and Strategy & Policy Forum.

This announcement came after the resignations of several executives from these economic panels following a series of responses from the White House to the tragic events in Charlottesville, VA that many deemed inadequate and misguided.

“We cannot sit on a council for a President that tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism,” AFL-CIO President Kevin Trumka said.

The President’s failure to clearly disavow a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville that turned deadly was criticized in a press release by Richard Eidlin, Co-founder of the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) and Vice President of Policy & Campaigns:

“Responsible American business leaders know that racism and bigotry have no place in our country. The hatred and resulting violence by neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and alt-right groups assembled in Charlottesville last weekend should have been condemned quickly and unequivocally.”

With a nationwide network of members representing over 250,000 business, the American Sustainable Business Council advocates for policy change and works to educate both businesses and the public in order to build a vibrant, sustainable economy.

The example set by Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier, GE CEO Jeff Immelt, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Campbell’s CEO Denise Morrison, 3M CEO Inge Thulin, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and others shows that the American business community can take the lead in demanding moral accountability and standing up for the principles of diversity and inclusion.
