Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump on Friday night banned federal agencies from conducting racial sensitivity training related to "white privilege" and "critical race theory" that his administration says amounts to "divisive, anti-American propaganda," the latest overture to his political base two months before the presidential election.

Citing "press reports," Russell Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget, decried the "millions of taxpayer dollars" spent on such programs "across the Executive Branch" in a two-page memo.

Vought directed federal agencies to identify contracts and agency spending related to training programs that suggest the US "is an inherently racist or evil country" or "that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil." He urged agencies to seek out legal courses of action "to cancel any such contracts and/or to divert Federal dollars away from these unAmerican propaganda training sessions."

So, there you have it. Yet more proof Trump is a disgusting racist. As if we needed more.

1. Signalling it's going to be race, race, race all the way to election day

Hope Joe and Kamala are prepared. Trump will drag out all the dog whistles and then some.

3. Harkens back to the Bush years, when the only cultural training the troops received

was that, since Iraqis (supposedly) wipe their derrière with their left hand, it was best to only shake their right hand.
