Elon Musk Quits White House Advisory Councils In Wake Of Trump's Decision To Pull Out Of Paris Climate Accord


Trump keeps proving that he doesn't understand how the world works and puts us all at risk. Glad to see Elon Musk (and Bob Iger) making a statement by leaving his councils.

On Wednesday, amid reports that President Trump planned to withdraw the U.S. from the landmark Paris Climate Accord, Musk said that if the president fulfilled that promise he would have "no choice" but to quit the White House advisory councils on which he serves. One day later, both billionaires have made good on their threats. Trump announced Thursday that he will remove the U.S. from its place as a participant in the Paris deal, and Musk promptly tweeted that he will no longer serve on the president's councils.
