Under Armour CEO Quits Trump's Manufacturing Council
Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank has stepped down from President Donald Trump's American Manufacturing Council, following the CEO of a pharmaceutical company, who also resigned on Monday over Trump's response to white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. "Under Armour engages in innovation and sports, not politics," Plank said in a Monday night statement. "I am appreciative of the opportunity to have served, but have decided to step down from the council. I love our country and our company and will continue to focus my efforts on inspiring every person that they can do anything through the power of sport which promotes unity, diversity, and inclusion." Earlier this year, Plank called Trump an "asset to the country," a stance he partially walked back in a full-page newspaper ad.
