Exclusive: U.S. State Department suspends all diversity training after Trump's directive

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department has suspended all training programs for employees related to diversity and inclusion, an internal cable obtained by Reuters showed, after President Donald Trump directed federal agencies last month to end programs deemed divisive by the White House.

“Beginning Friday, October 23, 2020, the Department is temporarily pausing all training programs related to diversity and inclusion in accordance with Executive Order ... on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping,” the cable said.

“The pause will allow time for the Department and Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to review program content,” it said.

Trump’s Sept. 22 executive order forbid the teaching by federal agencies of “divisive concepts” including that the United States is “fundamentally racist or sexist.”

The order followed a Sept. 4 memo from the White House Office of Management and Budget that told officials at federal agencies they could not use taxpayer dollars to fund “un-American propaganda sessions” that provided instruction about critical race theory, white privilege or “taught that the United States is an inherently racist or evil” country.
