AMAC Exclusive – By Katie Sullivan
In a fiery new video posted to his Truth Social page late last week, former President Donald Trump blasted a recent Joe Biden executive order on advancing “equity” in the federal government, marking the latest forceful response from the 45th president to the far-left policies of the current administration.
In the 90-second clip, Trump vowed to eradicate all the “equity” mandates from the Biden administration if he’s elected president again. Equity has become a “catch-all phrase for the Radical Left to justify every one of their crazy programs,” Trump said. “Instead of treating everyone equally, making decisions based on merit or qualifications, equity means that benefits are awarded and policies are enforced based on skin color and sexual identity.”
Trump released the video following a February 16 executive order from President Biden on “further advancing racial equity and support for underserved communities in the federal government.” According to administration officials, the order is a whole-of-government approach to combatting racial discrimination by redressing unfair disparities and by removing barriers to government programs and services. The order specifically mandates each agency head to “make advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility a priority component of the agency’s management agenda and agency strategic planning.”
In practice, this means treating Americans differently based on skin color. Rather than actual data and research on how best to allocate government resources, government agencies have now been ordered to make those determinations based on the race, gender, or sexuality of prospective recipients.
Biden’s order applies across the entirety of the federal government. As Trump points out, when agencies like the IRS are making decisions about tax enforcement based on race, “freedom and equality are dead.”
Trump also alludes to the Marxist roots of the far-left “equity” agenda and its intimate connection to other ideologies like Critical Race Theory. Both equity policy and CRT traces their origins to “Critical Theory,” a philosophy developed by a group of 20th century sociologists at the University of Frankfurt who based their thinking on Karl Marx’s writings on the economy, society, and politics.
The Biden administration has enthusiastically embraced equity as a foundational aspect of its governing policy since day one. Biden’s very first executive order mandated all government agencies to create “Equity Plans” and conduct “Equity Assessments.” Just five months later, in June 2021, federal agencies were ordered to create “Agency Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility Strategic Plans” pursuant to a second executive order on “Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility in the Federal Workforce.” Now, federal agencies are tasked with creating and running “Agency Equity Teams.”
Most terrifyingly for ordinary Americans, federal agencies have hired legions of woke bureaucrats in order to enforce this new equity agenda. For instance, every federal agency now has a designated “environmental justice officer” and a “special coordinator” to work with Biden’s “Gender Policy Council.”
Notably, Biden’s newest executive order explicitly elevates “advancing equity” above the traditional missions of federal agencies – namely, serving taxpayers. The order mandates that each “Agency Equity Team” have “sufficient resources, including staffing and data collection capacity, to advance the agency’s equity goals.” Agency heads must also ensure that “their respective Agency Equity Teams serve in an advisory and coordination role on priority agency actions.”
In order to meet this goal, agencies are ordered to use their “policy, budgetary, programmatic, service-delivery, procurement, data-collection processes, grantmaking, public engagement, research and evaluation, and regulatory functions” – in other words, every bit of their organizational capacity.
What this all means is that taxpayer dollars will now be re-allocated toward serving the left’s equity agenda rather than the interests of the American people. Furthermore, data collection will now be “equity focused.” Rather than an objective tool for improving lives, data will now be a subjective tool for advancing an ideological agenda.
In recognition of how dangerous and destructive such politicization of the federal bureaucracy would be, Trump has pledged to instruct the Department of Justice to make clear that any such discrimination is illegal if he is elected. He also promised to investigate potential civil rights abuses carried out by the Biden administration, terminate all bureaucrats hired under Biden’s equity orders, and even create a restitution fund for Americans who have been unjustly discriminated against by equity policies.
With the 2024 presidential race now heating up, the “wokeification” of the federal government and Biden’s equity policies could become a major issue for voters. Particularly as the White House fails to competently respond to crises like the Chinese spy balloon and the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, Americans will likely be none too happy to see Biden and his Democrat allies preoccupied with identity politics and virtue signaling.

People are still confused by the equity the Biden Administration is installing throughout the federal government. If anyone had read The Democratic Platform document from the 2020 Democratic Convention they would understand what is being implemented. I believe Eric Holder is the one responsible for this document, just a guess. It is over 90 pages long, and was adopted as the Biden/Harris agenda in full. Equity is to repay all blacks that they perceive to have been treated as second class citizens since the end of the Civil War or longer. The intention really would be to replace the 1960’s move towards giving a leg up on education, jobs, housing,ect. with gifts that go back to 1865 and make them equal and not prejudiced against. To do this, they intend to take from, treat inferior, make unemployable all white males that they perceive to be the guilty party for their poor treatment. To treat them as they feel they were treated. When you don’t understand what this is all about, all you need to do is read the document. It would be considered the most racist document ever written if it were whites doing it to blacks, but to them it’s catch up I think. I tried to get people to read it when I found it during the 2020 Democratic Convention. People told me they would read it if the democrats won the election. From all the confusion, people not able to figure out where we are going with this, I would still suggest you read the document. It is available on line for anyone to read, it is no secret.
Bidens version of “equity” means 80% of all jobs go to “minorities”. Today, we
define “minority” as anyone other than old white men. Meaning that 90% of our
population is a minority which is exactly what the woke want. 90% hating 10%
The fed govt is already “minority” dominated but Biden wants more. Give me the
name of any white male who has been hired by the fed in the last 2 years. You can’t
Biden ,…a Creep if there ever was one!!
It’s a true Kakistocracy at this point,”The Biden Kakistocracy”
Call it Equity or some other made up title..its the same thing every time is is created. This is the United States of America..and our Republic was founded for all citizens regardless of gender..color..religion..historical ancestry. God created the World with Love and Peace for everyone. It’s sickening that a few in power are pushing Freedom with the intention of destruction. I don’t know about you all out there ..but quite frankly I’ve had enough of manipulation by those in power. Time to send them off into space. Any way I voted for the businessman..D Trump.. Because he was Not a lawyer and/or politician. And I’ll do so again!
Biden should be tried for Treason
Biden holds ultimate responsibility for this, but I’m convinced that a person or persons behind the scenes are calling the shots on this. It’s an enviable position for someone with an agenda who doesn’t have to face any criticism since he has a puppet with dementia.
If the leftists really believe in “equity”, i.e. equal outcomes, they need to start by having all government employees, including President, Congress and all bureaucrats make $50,000 a year with no health insurance, transportation, per diem or other perks at all. Rich members also need to open their personal homes and properties to house those needing “affordable housing”, as that would not require tearing down their mansions. Only after they have done all of that might they be able to preach “equity” at the rest of us. Who will ignore it because America knows all people are created equal, but are not the same and should benefit based on their own hard work, intelligence, experience and merit. Leftists don’t believe in merit, but that is because they can’t get any power or money through merit on their own.
We need to impeach Bumbling Biden and also the cackling ho…..neither are competent enough to run this country. He has dementia and she is just plain ignorant.
Please inform “The Truth Social” team to eliminate the “wireless phone requirement” to join The Truth Social!
Ignorant would suggest that she has a working brain but we all know she has no brains or ethics
The Biden Administration looks like they want to destroy America and institutionalize racism and Marxism. Starting to think Biden is committing High Crimes.
If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it’s probably a duck.
This equity stupidity makes it more obvious than ever that Biden is NOT running the show. It is Obama and friends pulling all the strings….Obama was a horrendous, devisive president and now his “fundamental change” continues its decay on our country’s basic traditions and laws, We know this is not Biden who continues to fancy racist “jokes”, whose mentor was KKK Dragon Byrd, who fought against school integration, who insists his Delaware was a slave state, wh ran a racist opposition to the appointment of Clarance Thomas, who still speaks as a most bigoted man (e.g. I can’t dance” to a black audience is a subtle stereotypical aside. Why aren’t Black people up in arms against this obnoxious character?!) Trump is correct again!
More stupidity and Biden pandering at work. This is wasteful and obviously distracts from the mission of each agency to do things other than what it is there to do. The Biden admin is a horror show.
Today the only Racial Discrimination is AGAINST white people!
Especially white, straight, Christians.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse they exceed our expectations.
Equity? How about Open sesame or Supercalifragilistic
…expialidocious! I agree.
The Commie/Globalist traitors-to-our-Constitutional Republic are hell bent on their “fundamental transformation” Build Back Better, Great Reset. The traitors are destroying; say bye bye to culture, freedoms, opportunities, work ethic, food productions, energy created from our country’s abundant resources, the American Dream, and excellence in every facet of our lives as dumbing down continues…now with added “equity” to help the decline.
Much has already been destroyed; the expletives have been on warp speed enacting as many of their Marxist Commie projects their filthy, evil, Commie minds can think up. Major decline was amped up under Commie Traitor Obamie, and put on hyper warp speed ever since the pukes stole the 2020 election and installed the corrupt-to-the-core, fraud puppet with handlers like Obamie running the show for evil, insane $gazillionaires. Fact: “equity” is a core Marxist/Communist ideal; all part of their evil lunacy advancing tyranny, it creates winners out of miniscule subsets of the population, and losers of everyone else.
“Instead of treating everyone equally, making decisions based on merit or qualifications, equity means that benefits are awarded and policies are enforced based on skin color and sexual identity.”
This pretty much sums it up.
Equity = racism.
Democrats = racism
Democrats = equity
Actual qualification = conservatives
President Trump believes in hard work, competence, and merit. Biden believes in racism and sexism. President Trump believes that the American dream belongs to anyone who earns it. Biden believes that special rewards should be given because of a person’s skin color, sex, and sexual practices. President Trump believes in a free, liberty loving people who flourish and prosper. Biden believes in a monstrous federal government that unfairly plays tyrannical games of win and lose with its people being treated as pawns. President Trump believes in the nobility of American citizens. Biden believes in nothing but his own quest for money and power.
President Trump believes, and achieved, peace through strength. Contrast that with fraud puppet FJB actively smack talking and inciting the war between his BFF money laundering Ukraine and Russia. The expletive acquiesces to every demand from dirt-holder, corrupt Zelenskyy, to protect his, and the rest of the greedy money recipients’ azses. Looking at Commie Traitor Obamie, remembering his gifts to Iran, the expletive pResident said, “hold my beer” and gifted over $85 billion in state-of-the-art armanents, including a beautiful airfield, to a rag-tag bunch of terrorists now #26 in the world.
