<<It is pathetic to see one deranged guy get elected and suddenly all branches of government employees are treated as traitor. For Trump and his supporters, Press is enemy, our intelligence service is enemy, out department of justice employees (FBI, etc) are enemy, state department employees are enemy, ...>>



Unfortunately, Trump is merely being realistic with those concerns.


Certainly the media, beginning with the New York Times, has been taken control of American politics away from the Democratic Party for the two years after Trump's election, in order to destroy his Presidency.


There is good evidence that senior members of the FBI and State Department decided that the person elected to be President simply wouldn't do, and used the powers of their positions to undermine Trump's Presidency.

Frankly, it's a lot more worrisome that the bureaucracy decide that the elected President wouldn't do than the President deciding the bureaucrats wouldn't do.

It's really long past due to clean house among the bureaucrats and start over.

In the 19th century there were some bad times with Presiodents appointing every civilian in the executive branch when he came into office ----the result was the civil service system

Now we are seeing the problem when civil; servants have too much job security and decide that they, not elected officials, should run the government.
