Ken Frazier via Merck official website

Trump will be remembered as a president who stood for White supremacy during an event that could define a generation. It took Trump nearly three days to denounce White supremacists, but it only took him a few minutes to blast a Black CEO who stood against White hatred.

Kenneth Frazier, the CEO of Merck, decided to step down from his position in Trump’s manufacturing council. Frazier decided to step down after Trump’s lackluster response to the violence in Charlottesville.

“America’s leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal…I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism. 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,” Fraizer tweeted.

Within an hour, Trump responded to Frazier’s decision by tweeting, “Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President’s Manufacturing Council, he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!”

Trump’s tweet came before he denounced White supremacists and the KKK. His incensitive response should, again, show Americans everything they need to know about the man who was elected president. Trump expresses everything that he’s passionate about and doesn’t hold back. As a result, his lack of action against the KKK and other White hate groups should never be forgotten. We also shouldn’t forget how quickly he turned against a Black man for taking a stand against hate.

    speaking of boundaries trump is full of his own sh..t i, he better fall back accusing blacks of anything gotta do with civil right how dare him , use thomas jefferson and dead as george washington to account for all the hangings of black men in this country , trump need to be educated remember he is the son of a wealthy man, he had a siver spoon in his mouth . he tryid to get out of what he already stated about them protesters not being the ones to start it . dont matter who started it he didnt defuse it by makeing a xommient denouncing a floor
