Jared Kushner President Trump Ken Frazier

President Donald Trump announced he is dismantling two advisory boards after several corporate CEOs flew the coop following the president's response to the violence in Virginia.

Merck chairman and CEO Kenneth Frazier, pictured right, was the first to announce his departure from the Manufacturing Council that Trump originated to create more manufacturing jobs.

Several more CEOs followed Frazier out the door, but approximately 27 CEOs said they were staying.

On Wednesday Trump announced that he was disbanding the manufacturing council and the Strategy & Policy Forum after days of flared tensions between the White House and business people.

“Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both. Thank you all!” Trump tweeted.

Trump's supporters criticized the businessmen for putting profits ahead of creating more jobs for Americans.

They targeted Merck pharmaceutical which has 76,000 employees in 120 countries with 31 factories outside of the U.S.

Frazier and Trump did not see eye-to-eye on bringing the jobs back to America.

Despite sending jobs out of the U.S., Merck's drugs are among the costliest in the industry.

“Now that Ken Frazier of ­Merck Pharma has resigned from President’s Manufacturing Council, he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!” Trump tweeted on Monday.

Despite resistance from the corporate world, Trump is pushing ahead with his promise to reform the tax code to decrease taxes 15% across the board. Workers earning less than $48,000 annually will pay no taxes under Trump's bill.

Of course, the Democrats don't want tax cuts or tax reform because that would help millions of black people and contribute to economic growth in black communities.

    @sandrarose did you see where David Duke thanked Trump? He ran his campaign and his businesses off of the hatred from the KKK. His little handed azz is ruining this country. And just this morning he tweeted, make America great again, he woke them up and told them to get busy

  • GuestSTAR

    HAAAAAAAAAAAAA, wonder if his followers are tired of winning yet. All he’s done since taking office is put us into a perputal state of BREAKING NEWS, shock and awe. It’s draining, tiresome at this point.

  • Lisa daniels

    Your boy catching more Ls then Meek Mills.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    he'll readily lead us to the brink of war if he believes that's the only way to get us to forget about his ties to Putin and the money trail that's yet to be exposed.

  • Nikki Minor

    @sandrarose How come he only said something to the black exec that left. I don't remember him saying anything to Elon Musk or the others that left. I know this is your guy but dude is a racist.

  • Vonn

    Heey Fancy Nancy. I came in here to say you can't have a board without board members, he has no choice but to dismantle it. He keeps an alternative fact/lie on his forked tongue.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    exactly! and Elon jumped ship before this latest fiasco.

  • Dr. P

    She loves that lil hand bish

  • Vonn

    Lmao

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    (wonder what they put in his 'feel good' file today.... he'll come out and say he 'fired' them to save payroll - like he thanked Putin for saving payroll when he threw our agents out, smh - what an idiot!)

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Trump is breaking many records as president.

  • Rahab

    I heard rent was too damn high in NYC too. Is there a council to bring real estate costs and taxes back to attainable levels for all?

  • Nakia Brown

    he didn't disband jack! The majority of them decided to leave the council, and as usual, he claims he did something. he is a joke!

  • Rahab

    They justify his every move.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Right? He wouldn't spit or piss on her if she was on fire.

  • Lisa daniels

    Workers earning less than $48,000 annually will pay no taxes under Trump’s bill....

    Now yeah lowers are good but no taxes mean more pot holes in the road, more repairs to car and an even higher cost of living.

  • Lisa daniels

    Nods

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True.

    Basically Trump is trying to break up with them before they kicked him to the curb.

    He always has to be in control of a situation or pretend to be.

  • Blue

    Don't let aunty raise y'all pressure today.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    welp, if this is gonna be the final post of the day, I'm about to logout.... don't want to give a pro-Trump post too many comments, as it might be misconstrued as 'support' or 'approval' of the jackazz-in-chief. i'll go to a previous post if I decide to return.

    RIP to Heather Heyer and God be with her Dad and all those who loved her.

  • Lisa daniels

    They come with all kinds of "facts" to defend his honor. I ain't seen this many people lie for a man since Rome lied on Jesus.

  • Pamela

    Trump is like that partner your in a relationship with; just constant drama for no reason, just draining and tiring your azz constantly.

  • Coy little wink

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    "CNBC reported that Trump's Strategic and Policy Forum broke apart Wednesday, according to a member of the panel. As the news was breaking, Trump tweeted that he was ending the forum and a separate manufacturing council with corporate leaders.

    =====
    That's like somebody "resigning" from their job just as they're about to get fired. Lame.
    Clearly the wheels are falling off the wagon for Mr. Trump.

  • anjanette b

    I do agree that everyone out there was looking for trouble. Let the police deal with them foolish minded people.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well said. Keeping up with all this man's craziness is exhausting.

  • Faithz

    Yiou got that right, He's a real Live clown.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It's sad that you think lowering taxes and creating jobs in the black community is raising y'all blood pressure.

    If you believe that I have in bridge I want to sell you .

    He wants cut 6 billion from HUD. Not sure how that helps the black community.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    And I have a unicorn.

    You're still trying to keep hope alive huh? this fool just showed u who he is and u think he wants to help the black community? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7f63ae1d805fb8fe6a6284623a36592f89e83cb5dc806430a000bf1779b6dcf5.jpg

    45 is like a spoiled kid, "If I can't win the game, I'm taking my ball home". He's such a brat, he has tantrums just like a kid! SMH this is what we have to deal with for the next 3+ years!

  • Banka

    Oh sweet, you have a unicorn too !!

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    He deserves everything bad that's coming his way. Hes an evil man who shouldn't be in charge of a PTA or even high school class president let alone one with access to starting wars.

  • Justlooknout

    that sounds crazy and you don't make enough to much taxes.

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm not happy with Trump saying that white supremacists have fine people on their side. That was just ignorant. However he knows business and our economy is in great shape. If he cuts taxes for people making less than 48,000 a year. He's more helpful to blacks than Obama.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    You're delusional

  • Kayke

    6 bankruptcies. That is all.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The Democrats will fight any attempt to help black people financially. Just as they fought the Republicans who wanted to end slavery.

  • Kayke

    Black people aren't the only ones under 48k. Where are the other figures and cuts that will definitely be made ..... who do they affect the most?

  • Evillene

    "Despite resistance from the corporate world, Trump is pushing ahead with his promise to reform the tax code to decrease taxes 15% across the board. Workers earning less than $48,000 annually will pay no taxes under Trump’s bill."
    Gurl, this isn't even fake news. It is laughably preposterous, "the earth is flat" mess that you'd have to be a genuine moron to believe.

  • On the radar….
  • dontgetblocked

    Don't worry about who else is affected. Be glad something is helping many of us out and go with it. Back in the day, when Reagan passed out government cheese to the welfare and social security recipients no one asked questions. We just enjoyed the delicious grilled cheese sandwiches grandma made. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

  • Kayke

    Speak for yourself... This benefits me none....however, you can't stop the flow of money and not have to recoup elsewhere. I'm not looking to be feed so I'll bite hand, foot, face of anyone trying to sell me a dream. Dont be a fool.

    You also laughed when I predicted Trump would be elected president.

  • SpiceGirl

    and it shows....sad and true.

    I did laugh and it was provocation, not a "prediction." Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

  • Bdot

    Lol @ this hot mess of a post.

  • teather

    The members quit and disbanded the council. He thereafter disbanded an already defunct council. Lol! Go figure
