The CEO and Founder of Under Armour, Kevin Plank, has stepped down from a presidential business council in a reaction to Trump’s response to the violence surrounding the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
In his statement about the disturbing event, in which one woman died and 19 others were injured, Trump did not initially condemn white supremacist groups, but instead cited violence “on many sides.”
Plank was joined by two other high-profile business leaders, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, and Kenneth C. Frazier, CEO of drugmaker Merck, in stepping down from the President’s American Manufacturing Council.
Plank released a statement about his decision:
“I joined the American Manufacturing Council because I believed it was important for Under Armour to have an active seat at the table and represent our industry. We remain resolute in our potential and ability to improve American manufacturing. However, Under Armour engages in innovation and sports, not politics.
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.”
