President Donald Trump disbanded two of his economic advisory councils, after many members resigned in protest of his response to racist violence.

Trump tweeted Wednesday he was “ending” his Manufacturing Council and Strategic & Policy Forum, all made up of CEOs and other industry and workforce leaders.

Among those who resigned from the manufacturing group before that tweet were national AFL-CIO union president Richard Trumka and his chief of staff.

President-elect Donald Trump attacked the United Steelworkers union president who represents workers at Carrier in Indianapolis on Twitter Wednesday night.

Chuck Jones heads up Steelworkers local 1999, which includes the Indianapolis Carrier and Rexnord factories. Both have come under fire from Trump for sending some jobs to Mexico.
