Disney CEO Bob Iger Leaves Trump Council, Following Elon Musk
Disney CEO Bob Iger has resigned from President Trump's Business Advisory Council, as a result of Trump's withdrawl from the Paris Agreement. Iger said on Twitter that he was resigning "as a matter of principle", over the withdrawal. Iger joins Elon Musk, who also departed Trump's advisory group on Thursday after the move, which puts the United States among less than a handful of countries who have not signed on to help combat climate change. Trump has called climate change a "Chinese hoax". Musk quit the group earlier on Thursday, said leaving the agreement was "not good for America or the world."
