Two CEO advisers walked away from President Trump on Thursday. Disney (DIS) CEO Bob Iger said he will step down from Trump's business advisory council, protesting the president's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate deal.

"Protecting our planet and driving economic growth are critical to our future, and they aren't mutually exclusive," Iger said in a statement. "I deeply disagree with the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement." He also posted his decision on Twitter, saying he'd resigned from Trump's business council "as a matter of principle."

A few hours earlier, Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk said he would quit the same panel.

"Climate change is real. Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world," Musk said.
