"The so-called deep state is often weaponized to reflect current orthodoxies. In the last 30 years, it's operating premises have embraced multiculturalism, feminism, and identity politics diversity -- more of less the sacred tenants Trump has targeted." - Victor Davis Hanson, The Case for Trump (2019)

Suppose Trump's deep state are those parts not respondent to Presidential orders, in which case government was constructed with parts too deep for the President to reach, and here Trump's desire or perceived desire to return America to the greatness of less value for diversity (presumably he isn't going to delete diversity) is being thwarted by the republican nature of government. At least, that's the first layer.
