Protesters confront officers at the Ohio Statehouse on Monday, June 1, 2020.

The Trump administration has moved to halt employee racial sensitivity training at federal agencies.

At last week's presidential debate in Cleveland, President Trump said such trainings were themselves racist and claimed they teach people to “hate our country.”

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher: how racial sensitivity training works and why it’s needed.

Guests:

  • Maya King, campaign 2020 reporting fellow, Politico
  • Hasan Jeffries, associate professor of history, The Ohio State University
  • Mary Morten, president of the Morten Group, a national consulting firm
  • Mike Gonzalez, senior fellow, Heritage Foundation’s Allison Center for Foreign Policy
