Ken Langone Says Trump Economic Agenda Hurt by Charlottesville Response
Trump has lost the support of numerous C-suite executives in the wake of Charlottesville.

Home Depot Inc. (HD) co-founder Ken Langone told the New York Times that President Donald Trump has hurt his ability to push his economic agenda forward due to his missteps in the wake of the Charlottesville protest last Saturday that resulted in one death. 

"He completely mishandled the situation in Charlottesville. There was no gray area here - these people [the white supremacists] were repulsive," Langone, who has been supportive of the President's economic agenda in the past, said. "I had high hopes - the president has blown a great opportunity."
