Won't Condemn Trump: David Shulkin Says Charlottesville Racism Dishonored Veterans

Lindsey Graham over the President's response to racially motivated protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, continued Thursday, with the South Carolina senator accusing Trump of stoking tensions, a claim Trump called "a disgusting lie".

The senate majority leader is reportedly furious, but he still won't call out Donald Trump.

Former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick quit the forum in February, citing Trump's executive order on immigration. "History is watching us all". Jim, I understand this was announced via tweet.

JIM ZARROLI, BYLINE: Yeah.

Inge Thulin, president of 3M, and Denise Morrison, president of canned soup maker Campbell, were the seventh and eighth executives to leave the manufacturing council following Trump's Charlottesville remarks.

Perhaps that simply reveals that Pittenger, for example, is more concerned about Republican challenger Mark Harris in next year's primary than he is about a potential general election opponent like Democrat Dan McCready.

The action follows Trump announcing on Wednesday that he was disbanding two other business advisory councils.

"But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides", the President said. Steven Bannon - founder of the far-right news site Breitbart - was reportedly "thrilled". Trump appeared to be referring to his defeat of Graham in last year's presidential primary.

CORNISH: Honestly, what did these boards do?

As a result, we'll have more late-night torch-lit marches, more arm-banded outcasts enjoying their time in the spotlight, more Americans wondering if the chasm between them and those with different views can ever be breached.

ZARROLI: Yeah. Good question.

Trump condemned neo-Nazis and white supremacists on both Monday and Tuesday. And it met once or twice.

"You can't wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying, 'I'm sorry.' I'm not forgiving for that", she added. They're ready to listen to corporate leaders, to do business with them.

"The government must be vigilant in combating all acts of racism, xenophobia and racist violence, wherever they occur". How do they go back to covering White House press briefings and inviting Trump surrogates onto primetime panels?

But whether he believes the rubbish he spouted Tuesday or not, the end result is the same.

ZARROLI: Well, these councils don't have any power to set policy. Then you get into legal semantics.

"Mr. President, I encourage you to try to bring us together as a nation after this horrific event in Charlottesville". They really haven't from the beginning. He's the president. He has a lot of power over policy.

Donald Trump's presidency has often felt like a Tilt-a-Whirl ride if you were a drunk teenager who just hoovered a hot dog. Plus, they're hoping to overhaul the tax code for the first time in 31 years.

Dimon said he strongly disagrees with Trump's response.

CORNISH: That's NPR's Jim Zarroli.
