President Trump announced the end of Ogunlesi’s service to to him on Twitter following the dissolution of two business advisory council.

Manufacturing Jobs Initiative Council is the other council that served on the advisory council to the president.

According to repor from The New York Times “Corporate leaders had hoped that President Trump would help businesses by slashing taxes and gutting regulations. It is not clear how much he will deliver on that score. On top of that, he is putting many chief executives in the position of answering for a president with an unparalleled track record of outraging people, most recently at a contentious press conference on Tuesday when he drew a false equivalence between the white supremacists who protested in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend and counter-protesters”.
