Trump bars 'propaganda' training sessions on race in latest overture to his base

华盛顿州 唐纳德·特朗普总统 on Friday night banned federal agencies from conducting workplace training sessions on race that constitute “分裂的, anti-American propaganda,” 的 latest overture to his political base two months before the presidential election.

Citingpress reports,” Russell Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget, decried themillions of taxpayer dollarsspent on such programsacross the Executive Branchin a two-page memo.
It’s unclear to what extent such trainings exist, or if, as the memo purports, they instruct participants thatvirtually all White people contribute to racism.” 但, like Trump’s threat this week to yank federal funding from cities in blue states that he says are permitting unrest in the streets, Friday’s memo provides another talking point for his reelection campaign as it seeks to highlight culture war issues.
Such trainingsnot only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce,” Vought wrote, adding thatWe cannot accept our employees receiving training that seeks to undercut our core values as Americans and drive division within our workforce.
    Vought pointed to an order from Trump as the source for directing federal agency heads to stop using federal funds for such training, promising additional details to come. He also urged agencies to seek out legal courses of actionto cancel any such contracts and/or to divert Federal dollars away from these unAmerican propaganda training sessions.
    As Trump has lagged in the polls behind Democratic nominee 乔·拜登, he has sought to draw a contrast with his opponent on a host of sensitive issues. 最近几周, 特朗普有 vowed to protect monuments, including those dedicated to Confederate figures, declared himself your President of law and orderin response to unrest following police killings of Black Americans and called the phrase “黑人的命也是命” 一个 symbol of hate.
