Intel CEO resigns from Trump Council over Charlottesville

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES (FILE- FEBRUARY 8, 2017) (RESTRICTED POOL) – Intel CEO Brian Krzanich became the third CEO to resign, on Monday (August 14), from U.S. President Donald Trump’s American Manufacturing Council, following Trump’s initially tepid response to weekend violence at a rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“I resigned from the council to call attention to the serious harm our divided political climate is causing to critical issues…,” Intel Chief Executive Brian Krzanich said in a blog post.

After the white nationalist rally turned deadly on Saturday (August 12), Trump initially said that many sides were to blame. On Monday, in a statement, Trump denounced neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan as criminals and thugs, bowing to mounting political pressure as critics assailed him for not singling out white supremacists.
