CEOs feel the heat from consumers and employees on ties to Trump

CEOs are feeling the heat from consumers and employees on their ties to Trump.

That didn’t take long. First Uber CEO Travis Kalanick quit the president’s business advisory council (but not before rival Lyft capitalized on public perception).

Then Disney CEO Robert Iger skipped Friday’s meeting between Trump and the council.

Tesla’s Elon Musk decided to go, but took to Twitter to explain he’d use the meeting to express his opposition to Trump’s executive order on immigration.

EBay founder Pierre Omidyar warned business leaders, “Any affiliation with Trump White House is a stain on your reputation.”

Nordstrom, faced with a boycott, dropped Ivanka Trump’s brand of footwear, bedding and perfume “because of poor sales.”
