Disney’s CEO follows Elon Musk’s lead and ditches WH advisory council

On the heels of Elon Musk’s stepping down from his position on White House advisory councils in response to President Trump withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, the Walt Disney Company’s CEO Bob Iger announced that he’ll be following Musk’s lead.

In a tweet posted this Thursday, Iger said he was leaving his role on Trump’s advisory council as “a matter of principle” in response to Trump’s announcement that the U.S. will be withdrawing from the accord.

The remaining CEOs on the White House advisory council are Ginni Rometty of IBM, Brian Krzanich of Intel, and Michael Dell of Dell.
