Under Armour CEO quits Trump's manufacturing council

The Latest: Sessions defends Trump statement on violence

The CEOs of Intel and Under Amour have released statements saying they are resigning from Donald Trump's manufacturing advisory panel.

Business leaders, including JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s Jamie Dimon and Apple's Tim Cook, denounced racial intolerance, condemned hate speech or expressed shock over Saturday's events in Charlottesville, where a rally participant rammed a group of counter-demonstrators with his auto, killing one and injuring at least 19 others.

After Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier, one of America's most prominent black CEOs, quit the council earlier Monday, Trump lashed out at him on Twitter.

However, following the eighth resignation, Trump announced that both his manufacturing and strategic policy councils would end. After our deadline today, there was another high-profile defection from the council - Scott Paul, president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing - and Trump was back at it.

"Promoting American manufacturing should not be a political issue", he wrote in the blog.

The BBC added that North Korea's secretive nature makes it hard for analysts to determine the communist state's reasoning. Kim Jong has made it clear, time and again that any attack on the North will invite "merciless" retribution.

Plank and Krzanich, who are white, referred to the charged atmosphere in the US Plank said he was quitting because his athletic-wear company "engages in innovation and sports, not politics".

Mr Bannon has cautioned the president previously not to criticise far-Right activists too strongly, for fear of alienating his base.

Trump received widespread criticism for failing to specifically rebuke white nationalists for violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"There's no change in Dell engaging with the Trump administration and governments around the world to share our perspective on policy issues that affect our company, our customers and our employees", a Dell Inc spokeswoman said in a statement.

"America's leaders must honor our fundamental views by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal", Frazier said in a statement announcing his resignation.

If North Korea attacks U.S. , it 'will regret it fast'
And when it comes to tourism, he added, "I can say this: You're going to go up, like, tenfold with the expenditure of no money". Trump's warning came after the North threatened to fire ballistic missiles over Japan towards the US Pacific island of Guam.

CEO Denise Morrison on Wednesday became the sixth and seventh executives to resign from President Donald Trump's Manufacturing Jobs Initiative.

"I am appreciative of the opportunity to have served, but have made a decision to step down from the council".

The AFL-CIO is assessing its role on President Trump's council.

While Trump on Monday condemned white supremacists, he returned to his initial position at a press conference Tuesday, saying there was "blame on both sides" for the violence.

"I resigned because I want to make progress, while many in Washington seem more concerned with attacking anyone who disagrees with them".

Natalee Holloway's Remains May Have Been Discovered in Aruba
The father of missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway says he is awaiting the results of DNA testing on bones found in Aruba . Ward said on Today that the remains had been sent out for testing, and were recently confirmed to be human remains.

Walt Disney chairman and chief executive Bob Iger also resigned from a White House advisory council for the same reason. In addition to Krzanich's participation in Trump's advisory committee on manufacturing, he visited the White House earlier this year, and re-announced a factory development in the USA to boost Trump's favoribility.
