President Donald Trump has scrapped plans for an infrastructure advisory council after two similar panels dissolved this week amid backlash to Trump from corporate America.
“The President’s Advisory Council on Infrastructure, which was still being formed, will not move forward,” a White House official told CNBC.
Trump signed an executive order to start setting up the council last month. A nonprofit had sued the Trump administration over the council, saying the president tried to set it up without the require public disclosures, according to The New York Times.
