Former President Donald Trump called out Critical Race Theory as “flagrant racism” that the government is forcing into “every facet” of American society. He said this during a speech delivered to conservatives Saturday night in Phoenix, Arizona.
Critical Race Theory Is Flagrant Racism
Specifically, the former president spoke at the Arizona Federal Theatre for the “Protect Our Elections Rally” hosted by Turning Point Action USA, a political action committee. In addition, Trump called out Democrats led by President Joe Biden for their decision to resort to an “America last” ideology.

Trump also argued about America’s place in the world. “We shouldn’t be apologizing to the world. We’re apologizing for America, just like Obama apologized. Remember, he apologized. They should be apologizing to America for what they’ve done to it. That’s who I think should be apologizing to.”
Afterward, Trump proceeded to dismantle the present government. “The Biden administration’s ‘America last’ philosophy … is also making a mockery of our country right here at home.
Earlier this year, Biden signed an executive order pushing toxic, critical race theory into our children’s schools and into our military. How about our military? This poisonous left-wing doctrine is flagrant racism, plain and simple, and it has no place in our schools, no place in our military, and no place in our country.”
Biden Repealed His Order Against Critical Race Theory
In addition, Trump referred to his executive order limiting the teaching of Critical Race Theory. However, Biden rescinded Trump’s order during his first day in office. “If you remember, I ended it very rapidly with a very powerful executive order, but that executive order was immediately repealed and terminated by the radical left. A Republican Congress will defund it and ban it once and for all. They’re going to ban it. They will get it done,” he added.
The president also took shots at the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley. Even as Trump called CRT “Marxist ideology,” Milley defended the military’s examination of critical race theory.
Understanding White Rage
Also, Trump asked the crowd about Milley’s actions. “Can you believe it? He said he wanted to quote, ‘understand the White rage.’ He wants to understand the White rage. What the hell is he talking about that for? Our generals should not be focused on learning left-wing ideology. They should be focused on defeating America’s enemies and winning our future wars. Hopefully, we don’t have them, but if we do, we have to win them,” he continued.
As a result of his opposition to critical race theory, Trump said he remains a big target of the leftist crowd, “They’re still coming after me because I will never stop fighting and winning for you. Going through it for five years, five years.
From the very beginning of our movement, we have been fighting against some of the most corrupt, powerful, and entrenched forces imaginable. The professional political class, the deep state, the fake news media, the Russia hoaxers, the globalists, the socialists, the communists, the lobbyists, the corporate special interests who are absolutely terrible, and now the critical race theorists – all of them oppose our movement for a simple reason: We believe in putting America first,” he said.
We Believe In Strength
Specifically, what the former President wants is very simple. “We believe in strong families, strong borders, and strong sovereign nations. We believe in fair trade for the American worker,” he concluded.
