President Trump gave a healthy dose of criticism to Ken Frazier, the CEO of Merck Pharmaceuticals, after he resigned from the presidential business council in response to the violence by white supremacist groups at the Charlottesville, Virginia rally this weekend.
Frazier said U.S. leaders must “clearly reject expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy.”
“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. … As CEO of Merck, and as a matter of personal conscience, I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism.”
Trump called the Frazier out for his hypocritical stances on violence while gouging the American people at the drug counter.
“Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President’s Manufacturing Council,he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES.”
These CEOs think they can take the moral high ground on certain issues while ruining America on other issues and it’s high time someone called them out on it!
