Campbell CEO Denise Morrison and 3M CEO Inge Thulin announced Wednesday that they are leaving President Trump’s manufacturing council. So far, seven business leaders have left the council since Monday; and the council is expected to dissolve itself. “Racism and murder are unequivocally reprehensible and are not morally equivalent to anything else that happened in Charlottesville,” Morrison said in a statement. “I believe the President should have been—and still needs to be—unambiguous on that point.” In his statement, Thulin said the council “is no longer an effective vehicle” for his company to advance its goals related to “sustainability, diversity and inclusion.” The announcement comes after President Trump equivocated anti-racism protestors with those who came out to support a white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville this past weekend. He sparked outrage after saying “both sides” are to blame for the violence that erupted.
