Resigning Anti-Trumper: Only 'Complacent State,' No 'Deep State'

If there is a "deep state" working furiously to subvert President Donald Trump, it has "failed" miserably, according to Foreign Service officer Chuck Park.

In a damning opinion piece on why he resigned as of Thursday — posted in The Washington Post — Park said there is nothing but a "complacent state" in Washington.

"If the resistance does exist, it should be clear by this point that it has failed," Park wrote of the accusations an underground governance is working to oust Trump.

Park lamented he stayed as long as he did.

"I'm ashamed of how long it took me to make this decision," he wrote. "My excuse might be disappointing, if familiar to many of my colleagues: I let career perks silence my conscience."

"I came into the government inspired by a president who convinced me there was still some truth to the gospel of American exceptionalism," he wrote.

And now nearly three years after Trump's election Park wrote he is yet to see any pushback from within.

"To the contrary, two senior Foreign Service officers admonished me for risking my career when I signed an internal dissent cable against the ban on travelers from several majority-Muslim countries in January 2017," wrote Park. 

"Among my colleagues at the State Department, I have met neither the unsung hero nor the cunning villain of Deep State lore."

"They have it all wrong. Your federal bureaucracy under this president? Call it 'The Complacent State' instead," he wrote.

"Every day, we refuse visas based on administration priorities," he charged. "We recite administration talking points on border security, immigration and trade. We plan travel itineraries, book meetings, and literally hold doors open for the appointees who push Trump's toxic agenda around the world."

Park has served as a Foreign Service officer for nine years, serving American interests in Canada, Portugal, and Mexico, the Post reported.
