Disney CEO Robert Iger Resigns From Trump Advisory Council

Jun 2, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Robert Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Co., has resigned from Donald Trump’s business advisory council. Iger announced on Twitter that he was making the move in response to Trump’s withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris climate accord.

In a statement, Iger said: “Protecting our planet and driving economic growth are critical to our future, and they aren’t mutually exclusive. I deeply disagree with the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement.”

CNN notes that the move by Iger follows a similar move by Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Musk also announced his move on Twitter, writing: “Am departing presidential councils. Climate change is real. Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world.”

Iger and Musk were both members of Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, which is made up of business leaders who provide advice to the president.

  1. Oh no, I’m broken up and in tears about this.

    Don’t let the door hit you or Musk on the way out.

  2. Principled men with integrity and values versus a president who is arrogant, ignorant and continues to take America to new lows.

    Let’s hope the U.S. “wraps” up the Trump catastrophe by the year’s end.
