Trump Disbands Business Advisory Councils Rather Than Face the Humiliation of Its Members' Resignations

Under increasing pressure, Trump’s best buddies—all the CEOs he hangs with and considers his peers—were getting ready to disband the White House advisory councils they sit on and save face. Because imagine being the last CEO to leave the group. 


But the Donald has decided to pre-empt them.

Remember just back to yesterday when he was attacking them as “grandstanders”? Now he’s quitting them before they can quit him. And he has to be absolutely enraged. These are his people who have completely abandoned him. The tweetstorm in the wee hours tomorrow morning will be epic. Now all he has is the white supremacists. And most of the Republican Congress.
