It has come to the President's attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent
millions of taxpayer dollars to date "training" government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda.
For example, according to press reports, employees across the Executive Branch have
been required to attend trainings where they are told that "virtually all White people contribute to
racism" or where they are required to say that they "benefit from racism." According to press
reports, in some cases these training have further claimed that there is racism embedded in the
belief that America is the land of opportunity or the belief that the most qualified person should
receive a job.
The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using
taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions. Accordingly,
to that end, the Office of Management and Budget will shortly issue more detailed guidance on
implementing the President's directive. In the meantime, all agencies are directed to begin to
identify all contracts or other agency spending related to any training on "critical race theory/9
"white privilege," or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either (1)
that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is
inherently racist or evil. In addition, all agencies should begin to identify all available avenues
within the law to cancel any such contracts and/or to divert Federal dollars away from these unAmerican propaganda training sessions.
