Donald Trump Jr. Says China and Russia 'Love' CIA Diversity Video

Donald Trump Jr. criticized a new recruitment video from the CIA on Monday, stating that China and Russia "love" the clip.

The video features an officer named Mija describing her own experience while working for the intelligence agency. A shortened 42-second version advertisement was posted on the CIA's Twitter account on April 28.

"I am unapologetically me. I want you to be unapologetically you, whoever you are. Whether you work at #CIA, or anywhere else in the world," the tweet read. "Command your space. Mija, you are worth it."

In the full video, which is over two minutes long, Mija shared that she is intersectional, the daughter of immigrants and described herself as a cisgender millennial who has been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder.

"I used to struggle with imposter syndrome, but at 36 I refuse to internalize misguided patriarchal ideas about what a woman can or should be," she said. "I am tired of feeling like I'm supposed to apologize for the space I occupy rather than intoxicate people with my effort, my brilliance."

Mija goes on to say she did not "sneak" into the agency and that she earned her way into the CIA. The video also shows some of the awards that she has won during her employment at the agency.

The two-minute promotional video had more than 15,500 views on the CIA's YouTube page as of Monday. The agency's April 28 tweet of the clip has more than 1,000 likes and has been retweeted hundreds of times.

As the promotional video circulated online, critics began to criticize it as too "woke." One Twitter user pulled several quotations from the ad and wrote, "I think it's safe to say the contemporary American left has failed."

Trump Jr., the son of former President Donald Trump, retweeted the post with the caption: "China and Russia love this."

The two foreign superpowers are viewed as the top-two threats to the United States, according to a major annual intelligence report released in mid-April. The report didn't predict a military confrontation with either country, but said intelligence operations and cyberattacks will intensify.

The two nations, along with Iran and North Korea, "have demonstrated the capability and intent to advance their interests at the expense of the United States and its allies, despite the pandemic," according to the report.

Newsweek reached out to the CIA for comment on the criticism of its promotional video but did not receive a response before publication.
