Merck (mrk) CEO Ken Frazier resigned this morning from President Trump’s American Manufacturing Council, a group of business leaders tapped to advise the president on “how best to promote job growth and get Americans back to work again.”
Frazier’s decision to step down from the council came after President Trump failed to immediately condemn head-on the white supremacists whose rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend led to violence—including the brutal death of a 32-year-old counter-protester.
“America’s leaders must honor our fundamental values,” said Frazier said in a statement, “by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal.”
Fortune reached out to all of the other sitting CEOs on the council as well as the presidents of the AFL-CIO and Alliance of American Manufacturing, asking for a response to the weekend’s events and whether they planned to remain a member of the group.
The following are the answers we have received so far. They should be attributed to the company or company spokesperson unless otherwise indicated. We’ll continue to update as we hear back.
Besides Frazier, Under Armour (uaa) CEO Kevin Plank, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Alliance for American Manufacturing president Scott Paul, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, Campbell Soup CEO Denise Morrison, and 3M CEO Inge Thulin all said they would resign before President Trump said he would disband the manufacturing council on Wednesday.
