Russian President Vladimir Putin, in an interview with French publication Le Figaro, has insinuated that a US president is more often than not just a figurehead of government. A certain person may be elected by the public on the basis of his or her merit and ideals – but rarely is this person able to formulate policy. Putin explained that the ‘bureaucracy’ in the US, which is more commonly known as the Deep State, is very powerful and as such does not allow any real change in direction.
“Presidents come and go, but the politics remain the same.” As such, an individual, who may have genuine ideas, is elected into the White House only to satisfy the democratic process taking place. “Men in dark suits”, who remain anonymous to the voting public, continue to pursue the well-established interests of the elite with each incoming administration.
