Walmart CEO Doug McMillon is criticizing President Donald Trump’s initial response to violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, at a white supremacist rally.

But McMillon appears willing to stay on a panel of informal corporate advisers for the president.

He says in a note to Walmart employees that “(We) too felt that he missed a critical opportunity to help bring our country together by unequivocally rejecting the appalling actions of white supremacists.”

But McMillion says the president’s later condemnation of racism was a “step in the right direction.”
