Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Louist monmouth university poll six in ten americans believe that unelected or appointed government officials have too much influence in determining federal policy twenty six percent say the right balance of power exists between elected and unelected officials while this view of the deep state looks to be growing more prevalent only thirteen percent of americans are very familiar with the term twenty four percent or somewhat familiar and sixty three percent said they are not familiar however when monmouth described the term as quote a group of unelected government and military officials who secretly manipulate or direct national policy nearly three and four american said they believed that the deep state exists one in five said it does not and i think the facebook story in cambridge analytics that were covering we'll be doing a lot more on that later but carolee this is this is real and this president may be onto something whether it's right or wrong this is i can't i don't think you can look at that any other way than that it's a direct result of what we've seen the president tried to do which is so doubt about people in the administration of broad f whether it's the fbi or in other agencies and we've seen since he came into office him do this every single day whether it's on twitter whether it's he says publicly whether it's you know from the white house podium in the way that press secretary defends him and clearly this is is having an impact and this is the battle that he has been fighting while his lawyers may wanna fight a different one and richard his sowing doubt in members of the fbi of cia or anybody else in power and perhaps even saying things that are true about them like they are democrats when in fact they are republicans this is the beginning of something potentially very dangerous for sure further weakens the prestige and standing of the united states we used to.
