After it was exposed Monday, President Trump ordered the immediate cancellation of a “critical race theory” training program planned by the Centers for Disease Control that violated his executive order.
Christopher Rufo, the director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty in Seattle, obtained leaked documents that outlined the plan to have employees “examine the mechanisms of systemic racism” and address “White supremacist ideology.”
The final session was to teach the CDC employee how to become activists, Rufo said in a thread Monday on Twitter.
I've obtained leaked documents that outline the CDC's plan to "examine the mechanisms of systemic racism" and address "White supremacist ideology."

On Tuesday, however, Russell Vought, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, announced on Twitter that Trump ordered that the program be canceled “immediately.”
BREAKING: We shut them down.
But we must go further. There must be consequences for the federal employees who brazenly violated a presidential order. If there is no action from @CDCDirector in the next 72 hours, I will begin releasing the names of those involved.
