Trump versus the Deep State

by David A Schultz

“The Trump presidency is fraught with contradictions. Among the most notable is the degree to which the Steve Bannon war on the ‘deep administrative state’ is at odds with a presidency aimed at making America great again. To achieve that goal — whatever it means — it requires the Trump administration to take control of the political machinery of the state to secure policy goals, not seek to destroy it as Bannon and many Republicans aspire.” (03/16/17)
