President Donald Trump continues to pursue his agenda with his base sticking close by his side. Trump's approval rating is one of the lowest of any other modern president at this point in his term.
On December 2, 2017, Trump became closer to his first big legislative victory after Congress passed the GOP tax plan, the largest tax change in a generation. Trump’s other accomplishments include the Senate’s confirmation of nine Court of Appeals nominations (federal appointments right below the U.S. Supreme Court), reversal of net neutrality and steps to loosen environmental and financial rules. The FBI investigation of whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential race remains underway. It is against the law for members of a presidential campaign to collude with foreign entities to influence elections.
