Minutes after President Donald Trump castigated a trio of CEOs for abandoning his American Manufacturing Council, a fourth executive bailed on him.

‘I’m resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it’s the right thing for me to do,’ Scott Paul, the president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, tweeted Tuesday.

Trump had just vowed on Twitter that ‘[f]or every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS!’

It’s unclear how Trump will replace Paul.

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank revealed on Monday afternoon that he was stepping down from the council to ‘focus on inspiring and uniting through power of sport.’

A few hours later, he was joined by Intel CEO Brian Krzanich.

Their resignations came less than a day after Merck pharmaceuticals CEO Kenneth Frazier announced he was leaving the group.
