According to Trump, the current state of affairs is straightforward; his adversaries are anxious to stop him because they understand he is the only one capable of stopping them.
“I will terminate the unelected bureaucrats who have weaponized our justice system,” Trump stated, and added, “I will instruct the Justice Department to investigate Marxist prosecutor’s offices to hold them accountable for their illegal race-based law enforcement.”

Eliminating the deep state: Trump has long been critical of what he sees as the “deep state,” an alleged shadowy government network that controls the country from behind the scenes. Trump believes that eliminating the deep state will be his greatest victory.
#Trump is the candidate that the establishment and its media dislike the most. However he knows that he is not able to root them out. Saying "I will totally obliterate the DEEP STATE" is just propaganda to get people to vote for him. He knows that people like to hear that https://t.co/steqyYW0n0
