Scott Paul, a boss of a Alliance for American Manufacturing, is adding his name to a list of executives who have quiescent from President Trump’s production council, call new critique from a president.

“I’m resigning from a Manufacturing Jobs Initiative since it’s a right thing for me to do,” Paul wrote in a twitter Tuesday.

Even before Paul posted about his abdication on Twitter, a boss kick him to a tweet, essay some 15 mins earlier, “For each CEO that drops out of a Manufacturing Council, we have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have left on. JOBS!”

By departing, Paul follows in a footsteps of 3 CEOs — Merck’s Kenneth Frazier, Under Armour’s Kevin Plank and Intel’s Brian Krzanich — who quiescent from a legislature on Monday following a president’s heavily criticized doing of a lethal assault that erupted during a white supremacist convene in Charlottesville, Va., over a weekend.

Frazier pronounced in announcing his decision, “I feel a shortcoming to take a mount opposite dogmatism and extremism.”

Of his departure, Trump replied, “Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has quiescent … he will have some-more time to reduce ripoff drug prices!”

The legislature was shaped behind in January, when Trump launched a Manufacturing Jobs Initiative as partial of his bid to emanate American jobs. At a time, a White House pronounced a boss would be “meeting with some of a world’s many successful and artistic business leaders to share their practice and benefit their insights.”
