President and CEO of 3M, Inge Thulin, announced Wednesday he is leaving President Donald Trump's Manufacturing Council.

"I joined the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative in January to advocate for policies that align with our values and encourage even stronger investment and job growth — in order to make the United States stronger, healthier and more prosperous for all people. After careful consideration, I believe the initiative is no longer an effective vehicle for 3M to advance these goals. As a result, today I am resigning from the Manufacturing Advisory Council," Thulin said in a statement posted to 3M's Twitter account.

If these people think they can survive and prosper on cheap leftist consumers they are as dumb as dirt. Take you cheap shots dummies we will remember those who insult us.

Might as well just shut down this “council”. Those people aren’t interested in making America great again. They only concerned about the safety of antifa and BLM commie thugs.

The crony-capitalists and nanny-state hangers-on are revealing themselves.

I think I can get along pretty well without Post It’s. Elmer’s also makes adhesives. No big deal.

I really can't blame him -- especially since he doesn't mention anything about the reason(s) why he's leaving.

Personally, I would have resigned from that council as soon as we got to August 2017 and ObamaCare was still the law of the land here in the U.S. As a CEO, that would have been a clear signal to me that the U.S. government is not serious about addressing one of the single biggest costs that makes this country uncompetitive in the global marketplace.

I also would have taken the opportunity to announce that I was recommending China and Mexico as the locations of new manufacturing plants -- and identify Senators John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins as the three biggest reasons why I was making that decision.

It is wished we might be able to give him the benefit of the doubt and hope his decision was based on his fear that AMERICANS are too ‘at war’ with each other and could never come together to MAGA by his bringing new jobs into this nation.

ALAS, we truly believe him to be a bigot in his thinking as he turns tail and runs from our President due to the fact the man *big as he is* is ball-less and afraid to state the truth. Why is this so, Sir?

Anyone else wondering if this was the plan all along...sign up with the intent to later bail at a time of their choosing.

Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it’s enemy action.

This is all derpderp for the politico types to cluck about for a news cycle. Otherwise, it’s irrelevant.

The story I've seen is that this Manufacturing Council hasn't even met since February.

I'm sure most of these CEOs are starting to realize that the whole thing may have been a publicity stunt from the start.

Never knew that America’s CEOs had such a moral conscience.

Like I heard once; If you are not at the table you might be on the menu.

Dipso doing the best for his company.

No CEO or high ranking military person can be trusted. They are all a part of the resistance.

Selling out US citizens for magic H1B’s never bothers many CEO consciences.
