A lot has happened in President Donald Trump's first year in office.

He's faced hurricanes, wildfires, deadly mass shootings in Las Vegas and Texas, and terrorist attacks in New York City. He's met with world leaders in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia to strengthen relations with allies in the fight against a weakened ISIS and an increasingly nuclearized North Korea.

Back home, Trump continues to tout the low unemployment rate, higher-than-expected GDP growth, and a 17-year high consumer confidence index. He says these are indicators of a booming economy.

Trump also nominated Neil Gorsuch as a Supreme Court justice, instituted travel restrictions on citizens from mostly majority-Muslim countries, declared the opioid crisis a "public health emergency," rolled back Obama-era environmental regulations, pulled out of the Paris climate accord, called for a ban on transgender individuals serving in the military, and passed the largest overhaul in the US tax code in a generation, among much more.

Meanwhile, the investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election continues to plague the White House. Special counsel Robert Mueller has already indicted three of Trump's associates: former campaign manager Paul Manafort, foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, and Manafort's prot g , Rick Gates.
