Two years into his presidency, there are still some in the administration of President Donald Trump who seek to undermine him, according to two of his former campaign managers.

Trump entered office after the election of November 2016 with the promise of taking on the political Establishment.

Since his election, he’s faced a great deal of resistance from within his own administration, including leaks from within as well as the withholding of information by people.

David Bossie, his former deputy campaign manager, says things have improved as the president’s brought in people who are truly behind his agenda.

“You see more of the president’s people,” Bossie (shown above right) said to host Laura Ingraham on “The Laura Ingraham Show” on Tuesday morning.

“Folks who are on the America First agenda,” Bossie added. “They don’t have to agree with this president all the time. He wants to hear every side of an issue. That’s what he demands. He demands all of the information and that is what he found he wasn’t getting from a lot of people.”

Bossie doesn’t think the people working against the president from within are merely disgruntled federal employees, describing them instead as a vast left-wing conspiracy against the president.

He also warned that while things seem to be getting better, there are still internal interests working against the president.

Trump has faced issues with the intelligence community, which is still investigating him and his own staffers.

Bossie, along with former campaign manager Corey Lewandski, detailed how the president has been undermined since day one in a new book, “Trump’s Enemies: How the Deep State Is Undermining the Presidency.”

“That is something that has been widely talked about, and [it’s] what we describe in our book along with … the culprits in the intelligence agencies, the media and Congress on both sides of the aisle,” Bossie said on Tuesday morning.

“The president has had to fight since day one.”

Listen to the segment on “The Laura Ingraham Show”:

Trump has been at odds with the intelligence community throughout his presidency. Lewandowski noted its opposition to the president extends back even before the election, when the FBI used dubious opposition research to get a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against former foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

“The intelligence community since about June 2016 has worked to make sure Donald Trump would not get elected and would not serve a day in office,” Lewandowski told Ingraham.

“And we’ve seen that now through what I believe to be the false FISA warrants that were signed, the spying on American citizens on domestic soil, I think specifically of Carter Page.”

The FISA warrant was granted, at least in part, because of the information uncovered during the opposition research indirectly paid for by the Democratic National Committee.

The research dossier was prepared by Christopher Steele, a former British spy with deep connections to Russian intelligence.

The House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have been investigating decisions that Department of Justice and FBI made during two major investigations tied to the presidential election of 2016.

That includes what led to a special counsel investigation into Trump’s allegedly colluding with Russia.
