To: Bob Iger, Disney CEO
Bad Mickey: Tell Disney to Dump Trump
Disney Must Drop Trump's Business Council And Stop Collaborating With Trump.
Why is this important?
Disney CEO Bob Iger serves on Donald Trump’s economic advisory council. While we forced Uber CEO Travis Kalanick to step down last week, Iger refuses to leave the council. In a statement on February 7, Iger said the board is a “great opportunity” that gives him a “pipeline” to speak with Trump.
But here’s the thing. There’s no negotiating with an administration that is attacking immigrants, handing government over to Wall Street, and planning to take healthcare away from millions.
Tens of thousands of People’s Action and MoveOn members – together with hundreds of thousands of Uber users and workers – forced Uber CEO Travis Kalanick to resign from Trump’s council. We can do it again. We will not let corporate collaborators off the hook.
Demand Disney CEO Bob Iger resign from Trump’s economic advisory council immediately and stop collaborating with Trump.
