CIA's 'woke' recruitment video sparks backlash as Trump Jr leads critics slamming clip of 'cisgender millennial' recruit

DONALD Trump Jr. slammed the CIA's newest recruitment video as being something that Russia and China would love.

The former president's son attacked the latest Central Intelligence Agency's recruitment video featuring an "intersectional" and "cisgender" Latina mom discussing her immigrant parents' sacrifices to get her to her position in the agency today.


"China and Russia love this," Trump Jr. tweeted with a retweet of the video.

The video shows a 36-year-old officer detailing her job and her struggle to achieve that position in a two-minute video.

"I am a woman of color, I am a mom, I am a cisgender millennial who’s been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder," she voiceovers in the video. "I am intersectional, but my existence is not a box-checking exercise."

“I did not sneak into the CIA,” says the agent, adding she suffered from “impostor syndrome,” goes on to say "I refuse to internalize misguided patriarchal ideas of what a woman can or should be."


“My employment was not and is not of a fluke or a slip through the cracks," she said. "I am educated, qualified and competent.”    

Aside from Trump Jr, others also jumped to blast the CIA for its newfound "woke" recruiting tactics.

“The CIA just released a recruitment video full of woke propaganda and America’s enemies are laughing their heads off,” conservative author and podcaster Dinesh D’Souza said.

“That our universities teach people to talk like this is a national embarrassment,” tweeted author J.D. Vance.

Others blasted the CIA not for being woke, but for seeing diversity as a means to abscond its controversial past.

"Next time when I'm getting tortured at a CIA blacksite, at least I know it's by a diverse crew," joked one Twitter user.
