The Trump Land Mine
If the deep state really wanted to dismantle and disarm Donald Trump, it would have been wise first to carefully learn how he was constructed and wired - and thus why he was especially dangerous to them. Then to disarm him, elites would have had to offer superior agendas to his supporters, while engaging in reasoned debates and alternative visions - working with him when they found common and shared solutions, playing the loyal opposition when there did not. Explosives require careful handling. Sometimes they blow up in your face.
