During Tuesday’s White House press briefing, Newsmax’s John Gizzi asked White House press secretary Sean Spicer about David Horowitz’s new book “Big Agenda” and claims Horowitz has made a “deep state” has been seeking to undermine President Trump.
“This has been widely repeated on social media: Does the president himself believe in this deep state?” Gizzi asked.
Spicer replied: “I’ve been asked this question before, and I’ll give you the same answer I’ve given before. This has been going on since the country came to be, where people burrow in after an administration into a civil servant job.”
He added, ominously, “But, sure, there are people after eight years of Obama that found their way into government, so it should be no huge secret.”
