Donald Trump Jr. claimed during a speech on Tuesday that there are high-level government officials trying to undermine his POTUS dad.
“My father talked about a rigged system throughout the campaign, and people went, ‘Oh, what are you talking about?’ But it is,” Trump Jr. said. “There are people at the highest levels of government that don’t want to let America be America.”
Trump’s son is not the only one connected to President Trump talking about the so-called “Deep State” working within the government to defeat Trump.
Back when Sean Spicer was press secretary, he hinted at the same thing.
“I think there’s no question when you have eight years of one party in office that there are people who stay in government who are affiliated with, joined and continue to espouse the agenda of the previous administration,” Spicer said back in March. “So I don’t think it should come as any surprise that there are people that burrowed into government during the eight years of the last administration and, you know, may have believed that agenda and want to continue to seek it.”
He added: “I don’t think that should come as a surprise to anyone.”
The idea seems to have first taken root in an article found on Breitbart News.
