CEO resigns from Trump's council after Charlottesville remarks

Richard Trumka, the CEO of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), resigned Tuesday evening from Trump's manufacturing council.

He claimed that Trump's remarks this afternoon about the violence on "both sides" in Charlottesville "repudiate his forced remarks yesterday about the KKK and neo-Nazis."
