A day after two White House business councils were disbanded after CEOs and business leaders were jumping ship following President Donald Trump’s “both sides” response to Charlottesville, the administration is now scrapping another council.
With it obvious that the presidential advisory council on infrastructure was facing mass resignations, according to The Guardian, a source said that the “president is not going to move forward on” the panel.
And Reuters confirmed that the council had been dissolved:

Interestingly, the press conference that resulted in Trump’s off-the-rails remarks was initially called so he could give a statement on American infrastructure.
