Kenneth Frazier, CEO of Merck Pharmaceuticals, resigned from the President’s manufacturing council today, citing Trump’s lack of personal indignation to the events in Charlottesville as a reason.

Frazier joins Elon Musk in deciding to leave the council, which has triggered the President to attack him on Twitter.
Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President's Manufacturing Council,he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!

Just to recap, Frazier was a good guy up until today’s resignation. Now he presides over an evil corporation who sells drugs at ‘ripoff’ prices. Did I say ripoff? I meant to say RIPOFF.
