Under Armour CEO Steps Down From Trump's Manufacturing Council

Back in February, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank made comments praising the election of businessman Donald Trump as President. Those comments drew the ire of Warriors guard Stephen Curry.

On Monday, Plank made a move that will likely please Curry.

Plank announced that he is stepping down from Trump's American Manufacturing Council.

"I love our country & company. I am stepping down from the council to focus on inspiring & uniting through power of sport," Plank wrote on Twitter.

Additionally, he issued a longer statement further explaining his decision:

"I joined the American Manufacturing Council because I believed it was important for Under Armour to have an active seat at the table and represent our industry. We remain resolute in our potential and ability to improve American manufacturing. However, Under Armour engages in innovation and sports, not politics.

I am appreciative of the opportunity to have served, but have decided to step down from the council. I love our country and our company and will continue to focus my efforts on inspiring every person that they can do anything through the power of sport which promotes unity, diversity and inclusion."
