Charlottesville Protest

Charlottesville Protest

Richard Trumka, the president of the AFL-CIO, announced Tuesday he is following others in resigning from President Trump's manufacturing council in protest over the president's response to the deadly Charlottesville violence over the weekend.

Trumka in a statement said he and AFL-CIO Deputy Chief of Staff Thea Lee, who was also a member of the council, "cannot sit on a council for a president who tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism".

The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations is a federation of labour unions that represent 12.5 million workers.

Antonio Guterresadded "We must stand up against them".

That follows Japan data showing growth topped estimates in the second quarter, reflecting better domestic demand. South Korea's Kospi gained 0.6% to 2,334.22 and the Shanghai Composite index advanced 0.9% to 3,237.36.

"President Trump's remarks today repudiate his forced remarks yesterday about the KKK and neo-Nazis, " Trumka said in a statement.

Trumka and Lee resigned shortly after Trump once again blamed "both sides" for the violence that erupted at Saturday's white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Trump again said that "both sides" are responsible for the unrest.

His announcement Monday - which sparked an immediate negative response from Trump on Twitter - was followed by that of Ken Plank, the CEO of Under Armour.

"I'm resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it's the right thing for me to do", Paul tweeted.

Horseman Capital Management Ltd bought a new position in Scorpio Bulkers during the first quarter worth approximately $6,440,000. Finally, Voya Investment Management LLC increased its position in shares of Scorpio Bulkers by 27.2% in the second quarter.

Trump hasn't appeared overly fazed by the departures.

"For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place", Trump boasted by Twitter, scowling, "Grandstanders should not have gone on" the council in the first place.

Holy shit. Trump actually brought together the unions and Wal-Mart, whose CEO Doug McMillon said earlier today that 45 "missed a critical opportunity to help bring our country together by unequivocally rejecting the appalling actions of white supremacists".

"We joined this council with the intent to be a voice for working people and real hope that it would result in positive economic policy, but it has become yet another broken promise on the president's record".
