Hugo Boss just signed on though.

Just more white people appropriating black culture of getting the fark out when the nazi's show up.

"The president hit back at his critics in the business world during a news conference at Trump Tower Tuesday. He spent several minutes lashing out at some of the most prominent executives in the country, saying that those who left his councils were "not taking their jobs seriously" and were "leaving out of embarrassment."

The only embarrassment they are suffering from is being associated with a failure of a businessman whose only talent seems to be making bad people's money clean.

Well crap, now Walmart is taking the moral high ground. Walmart.

Corporations seem to be having a difficult time deciding between Nazis and the United States of America.

And the sad thing is that that's not surprising in the least.

Those guys are total losers. SAD! I was about to close that council anyway. No need for it since I'm the best at business!

Nothing about Trump's presidency has been good for business, and if he wants to fight in the open, they look happy to do it.
 
2017-08-16 11:27:06 AM  
This is truly a case of whoever the last one is to leave thus becomes the biggest loser.

Nope. Michael Dell's still staying strong with Trump.

I guess there are dozens of CEOs waiting in line to replace them, so no big deal

A) I love this quote:

"This should be his strong suit: courting C.E.O.s," said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University. "Instead, Trump finds himself with C.E.O.s not wanting to be in a photo op with the president. What should have been an honor has become an albatross."

B) Fark you, NYT site designers, for making it so hard for a desktop PC reader to copy that quote and post it. I had to print to PDF and then extract the quote from there because your site wants to treat me like a mobile user.

A lot of them joined that lame council of his because Trump campaigned on strong economy and returning jobs to America. There's nothing wrong with that per se; a CEO has a duty to maximize company opportunities. And once in, they likely hoped they could work with Trump as if he was any other president.

Now they know this is not true, time to go.
 
2017-08-16 11:30:05 AM  
And Trump had another Twitter tantrum about Jeff Bezos and Amazon, causing a loss in their stock price.

It's going to be interesting to see where this goes from here.  There's obviously no benefit to a company to be too associated with Trump, especially after he went full Nazi yesterday, but he can still hurt you, especially if it looks like he might try to use regulatory agencies to go after you.

I think, ultimately, more CEOs will choose to distance themselves from Trump, and at that point, we'll see who the true masters of the GOP are.  I've always thought that ultimately, the masters of the GOP are the corporate overlords, the 1%, and if they decided someone needed to go, he or she would.  Can they get rid of Trump if they want to, though?

Exactly.  Under normal circumstances you damn sure want your company represented on such a council!  Who wouldn't?  But circumstances, they are not normal.

He[Trump] spent several minutes lashing out at some of the most prominent executives in the country, saying that those who left his councils were "not taking their jobs seriously" and were "leaving out of embarrassment."

And he said this without the slightest sense of irony.

Yet the early momentum dissipated and few meetings of the advisory groups have been held since.

Because it was all a show to make Trump feel important.
 
2017-08-16 11:33:03 AM  
This is the excuse they have all been waiting for. No one can be mad at you if you jump ship because you hate Nazis.

It all ultimately comes down to money, so if the rest of the R administration start to feel the pain in their wallets, Trump is out. I doubt even Bannon would beggar himself to realise his aryan dream...

Concerns and criticisms are nowhere near empty.

Staying on is cowardly though.

I still love that the media is willing to push this bullshiat lie.  Why would he be good at courting CEOs?  Real CEOs know that Trump is a failure, a moron, and a conman.  No legit business leader with an ounce of sense would do business with Trump.

Here's the thing; I fully expect that Trump and crew are dumb enough to put any orders for illegal retaliation or harassment of Trump's political opponents in writing.  shiat, I half expect Trump to brag he did something like that on Twitter.

You're being generous.

All they care about is money and power.  They would be on Satan's council if it came right down to it.

It's disgraceful, imo.

Threaten to take your business elsewhere? If all good, nazi-hating Americans hit businesses that appear to support this idiot in the wallet, then rank and file Republicans might suddenly realize that they too hate nazis.

I imagine that in Trump's mind,  people are reacting because they hate him and are jealous.   Businesses acting embarrassed because of the wrong reasons and are being disloyal.

It doesn't even occur to him that HE'S  the one that did or said something wrong.
