"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.

Trump's comments were met with a firestorm of backlash on social media by several groups that encouraged the CEOs of Trumps manufacturing council to resign in protest.

His resignation came even after Trump made a statement on Monday explicitly calling out hate groups, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists, for their role in the unrest. "There is no room for equivocation here".

Walt Disney Co. Chairman and CEO Bob Iger resigned for the same reason from the President's Strategic and Policy Forum.

A White House official downplayed the importance of the manufacturing council and a separate policy and strategy forum featuring corporate leaders. Had the president not disbanded the forums, the exodus would have surely continued.

The resignations followed the president's response to the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where white supremacists chanting Nazi, anti-Semitic and other inflammatory slogans clashed with counter protesters.

James Alex Fields, 20, is under custody for being the alleged driver of the vehicle.

Waving signs and marching down streets, they chanted "Shame!" The initiative was designed to advice the president on ways to create more manufacturing jobs in the United States.

On Tuesday, McMillon stated that he felt President Trump "missed a critical opportunity" to unite the country following Charlottesville.

"We remain resolute in our potential and ability to improve American manufacturing", he said in a statement.

The group said in a statement that the question of their participation was becoming a "distraction from our well-intentioned and honest desire to aid vital policy discussion". "Racism, bigotry, and violence have no place in our society", Kamsickas' statement read.

Trump lashed out at the business leaders who have quit his manufacturing council, attacking them as "grandstanders" after their numbers increased. They then vaccinated mice against the different components of fenethylline, administered the drug and determined how each substance affected their vigilance and movement, as well as the drug's uptake by the brain and body.

On Sunday, the White House released an unattributed statement saying that "of course" the president rejected hate groups.

"I joined the American Manufacturing Council because I believed it was important for Under Armour to have an active seat at the table and represent our industry", a NY daily quoted Plank, as saying.

Important side note: The researchers say their vaccine approach could be used to better understand how other drugs affect the brain.

Over the next two days, leaders from Intel, Under Armour, the Alliance for American Manufacturing, the AFL-CIO, 3M and Campbell Soup Company also resigned. Most advice was informal, and neither committee met frequently.
