President Donald Trump hasn’t had a good day on his favorite social media site. After retweeting someone calling him a fascist and a meme showing a CNN reporter being hit by a train, the White House was forced to saying that it “inadvertent.”
Next, Trump tweeted out a veiled threat claiming that if other CEOs drop off of his Manufacturing Council he has many more that can replace them. Then he followed the tweet with the all-caps non sequitur: JOBS!
For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS!

Just after Trump’s tweet, Scott Paul, of the Alliance for American Manufacturing dropped off of the council as well.
“I’m resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it’s the right thing for me to do,” Paul tweeted.
I'm resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it's the right thing for me to do.

The internet was merciless in their mockery:
What's the matter? Feelings hurt because their resignations are exposing you for the racist, white supremacist supporting man you are?

When Donald Trump is impeached & his whole administration is thrown in jail, there will be plenty of job openings…

Kenneth Frazier and Kevin Plank have moral compasses, did the right thing. Donald Trump might be a billionaire, but he is morally bankrupt.

Donald Trump just criticized/accused CEOs of grandstanding. If thats not clear evidence that Trump always projects I don't know what is.

Your entire presidency is just grandstanding.

Looks like you just lost another one. You aren't helping yourself much with YOUR disrespectful "grandstanding"!

So, just to clarify, in your tiny little mind, morals, ethics, principles are all just grandstanding?! pic.twitter.com/f560BJam3U

I thought you only hired and went for the best people? More lies. More grandstanding. And for what? Your ego being placated? Please.

Says the king of grandstanding! Typical rich schoolyard bully reaction: "I don't care if you won't play with me; I can buy other 'friends.'"

You are accusing others of grandstanding? I don't think your brain stem connects to your spinal cord. Pitiful.
