President Trump cannot resume dialogue with Russia because of the "deep state”

Summary of Disinformation

President Trump appears to be under the influence of a certain hidden system of power, which the Americans call the “deep state” or “shadow government” (they are responsible for all key political decisions in the United States). There have been repeated cases when Trump had to withdraw his initiatives under the influence of these forces – for example, the conservative elites controlling the “deep state” stand against the statements of Trump to resume the dialogue with Russia.

Disproof

This message presents a classical conspiracy theory that the “deep state” and “shadow government” control the work of democratic institutions in the United States. Here are some other examples of this narrative: “Deep state” fighting with Trump (here and here); “Deep state” shaping the US foreign policy (here).

No reputable political scientists and researchers confirm the existence of a “deep state” in the United States.
