Yesterday, President Trump announced that in addition to banning federal entities from indoctrinating workers with Marxist “critical theory” indoctrination, he has extended that ban to include ‘woke’ companies that do the same.

The National Pulse reported:

The President of the United States has unveiled a ban on companies which promote critical theory and Marxist politics from working with the United States government.

The move is an extraordinary intervention in the cultural debate raging in the United States and further afield, and doubles down on the President’s announcement from earlier in September, wherein he banned “efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies.”

The move will likely spur on the Trump base ahead of the November 3rd election, and will rile hard-left activists who have been looting and rioting across the U.S. for months, using “black lives” as a cover for their Marxist activities.

A few weeks ago, I BANNED efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies. Today, I’ve expanded that ban to people and companies that do business…

More detail from CityJournal correspondent Christopher Rufo:

VICTORY: The President has just signed a full Executive Order abolishing critical race theory from the federal government, the military, and all federal contractors.

The president has effectively declared war on CRT—and extended the battlefield to all of our institutions.

To begin, the president explains that our nation was founded on the ideal that “all mean are created equal” and denounces critical race theory’s “pernicious and false belief that America is an irredeemably racist and sexist country.” pic.twitter.com/F8cif7egGt

The ambition of the executive order is breathtaking: the President will prohibit federal funds from supporting critical race theory trainings in the federal government, in the military, and by all federal contractors. pic.twitter.com/OEafnbPggF

The executive order will also disrupt the flow of money to academia’s critical race theory programs. The order stops all federal grants that support CRT—with the potential to cripple hundreds of academic projects moving forward. pic.twitter.com/h2CBH0oa6v

The executive order also opens the legal floodgates: the President instructs the Attorney General to assess whether critical race theory trainings create a “hostile work environment” and constitute a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. pic.twitter.com/AOjmyml7VY
