President Donald Trump meets with Kenneth C. Frazier, Chairman and CEO of Merck & Co. in January. In August, Frazier left the White House American Manufacturing Council over the president's comments on the white nationalist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The three condemned the hate groups that attracted violence to a recent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia — something President Donald Trump has been criticized for not doing in a timely way.
