Of all of the things that President Trump promised Americans before he was even elected as President was that he would work to drain the Washington swamp.
This means getting rid of many career politicians and those who are deeply entrenched in the Deep State.
While he did get rid of a lot of people who were in Washington that really didn't need to be there, I think he learned that the swamp is much deeper than it appears.
You would think that President Trump would be able to appoint people who would at least be loyal to him, but he found that to be much more difficult than expected. At least, more difficult than we expected.

President Trump's Assistant to the President, Trade and Manufacturing Policy, and National Defense Production Act policy coordination, Peter Navarro spoke out against one of President Trump's right-hand men...Attorney General Bill Barr.
During an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures, Navarro accused AG Barr of slow-walking President Trump's Executive Orders and favoring Biden's Executive Orders.
"Here’s the news behind the news. Bill Barr, President Trump’s Attorney General, also it turns out, happens to be Joe Biden’s first Attorney General because here was what was happening.

Navarro even went on to say outright that Barr was really working against President Trump, "Yeah, we got slow-walked at the Department of Justice. The problem I told Barr about numerous times and he should have been fired months before he was. By the last year of this Administration, he was really working against this Administration in a lot of ways."
