Trump Allies Plan to Use Justice Department to Fight ‘Anti-White Racism’

Former President Trump’s allies are devising strategies to reform the Justice Department with a renewed emphasis on addressing what they perceive as the real issue of racism in America: “anti-white racism.”

According to a new Axios report, Trump aides and allies are maneuvering to leverage the Justice Department to undermine and dismantle public and private initiatives aimed at addressing structural and historical racial discrimination. 

The targets could vary from long-standing policies intended to provide economic opportunities to minorities to more contemporary programs initiated in response to the pandemic and the killing of George Floyd. 

“As President Trump has said, all staff, offices, and initiatives connected to Biden’s un-American policy will be immediately terminated,” Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung said. 

The cornerstone of this drive is America First Legal, established by former Trump advisor Stephen Miller, who has hailed the organization as a conservatives’ long-awaited response to the ACLU. 

In a lawsuit against CBS and Paramount Global in February, America First Legal cited the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for what the organization claimed was discrimination against a white, straight man who was a writer for the show “Seal Team” in 2017. 

In 2021, the group successfully sued to prevent the implementation of a $29 billion pandemic-era program for women- and minority-owned restaurants, claiming it discriminated against white-owned businesses. 

“This ruling is the first, but crucial, step towards ending government-sponsored racial discrimination,” Miller said at the time.
