Telsa Motors founder Elon Musk has officially withdrawn from President Donald Trump's council of advisors in the wake of Trump's withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord on Thursday.


Musk announced on Wednesday that he would leave the council if the president withdrew from the climate agreement. In a pair of tweets, Musk said that he would have to reconsider any alliance with the president if Trump broke the historic agreement.
