ABC News(NEW YORK) — Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier announced Monday that he’s resigning from the president’s American Manufacturing Council amid the ongoing criticism over the president’s remarks on the weekend protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Frazier said in statement that as a “matter of personal conscience, I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism.”

“America’s leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal,” Frazier said.

The president responded on Twitter, slamming the pharmaceutical executive’s decision.
