Merck CEO Ken Frazier has resigned from the President’s Manufacturing Council as a “matter of personal conscience” following Trump’s apparent lack of rejection of “expressions of hatred, bigotry, and group supremacy.”

Statement from Kenneth C. Frazier, chairman and chief executive officer, Merck:

“I am resigning from the President’s American Manufacturing Council.

Our country’s strength stems from its diversity and the contributions made by men and women of different faiths, races, sexual orientations and political beliefs.

America’s leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal.

As CEO of Merck and as a matter of personal conscience, I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism.”

    You sir are a murderer! Your company has peddled some of the most dangerous drugs for obscene prices to the most vulnerable people for heinous profits which have killed so many people of different faiths, races, sexual orientations and political beliefs. You sir are a predator and a murderer. You and all other CEOs like you need to be arrested, charged, tried and jailed for your crimes. Iceland did it to bankers for lesser crimes. Americans DEMAND an Iceland Policy for white collar murderers masquerading as legitimate captains of industry.
