President Trump’s response to the Charlottesville violence has sparked uncertainty in his administration, resulting in increasing speculation that some senior officials may be considering bowing out.

On Wednesday, a group of business executives severed ties with the trump administration, after the President blamed “both sides” for last weekend’s clashes that claimed one life and left several others injured.

Frustration among officials

Officials who are frustrated about the President’s position on the Charlottesville clashes could be the next on the exit door. Trump’s comments have left many wondering if remaining with the President could be too costly to their reputations.

A senior administration official who is weighing the option of resigning said he decided to join the administration believing he could contribute his quota by bringing in his expertise and experience that the President was lacking in his business career, and to encourage him to be mindful of what he says publicly and to allies and partners, but he is now beginning to think twice about his future with the administration.

In the uproar that followed after Trump's speech blaming both the white nationalists and counter protesters for the violent clashes that characterized last weekend’s rally in Charlottesville saw chief executives of corporations quitting the White House advisory council. Trump then disbands the advisory council.

The uproar sparked that the President’s top White House economic adviser Gary Cohn and other important liaison to the business community in the United States might also be walking away in protest.

Cohn was displeased with Trump’s comments, though sources say he is remaining for now.

Cohn, who is Jewish, stood by the President during his Tuesday remarks at the Trump Tower, but was uncomfortable and looked self-conscious.

On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin told journalists that he was “outraged” as a Jewish American by the activities of white supremacists groups and neo-Nazis and could not hold his feelings but to speak out against them.

Shulkin said he would not condone in whatsoever the behavior of Nazis because he believes their actions cannot be tolerated. He, however, defended the approach adopted by President Trump.

Cohn, who moved from Sachs Group Inc. to the White House as Trump’s chief economic adviser, is mindful of the consequences his tenure in the trump administration could have on his reputation and profession.

A former administration official said Cohn was worried about his professional reputation being ruined, which is by far more valuable to him than anything one could imagine.
