    How much trouble is President Trump in now on his "first regular day" of his presidency?

    Looking at an almost empty Cabinet, women's marches, a vague foreign policy, looming conflicts of interest, a perhaps alienated Congress, an incomplete Supreme Court, and a steadily growing National Debt, veterans' issues, a weakened and over-committed military,
    and any of a dozen other concerns, how much trouble is the new president in?

    What items are on President Trump's "Bucket List" for his first 100 days?  Which are likely to be accomplished by "Law Day" May 1, 2017?

    hes in no trouble. hes the right color, and the right gender. he will get a million chances. i mean, think about it; would we EVER elect a black man or a woman who had 5 kids by 3 different people? theyd be "immoral", and worse. hes privileged...hell be fine.

      Racist, moralist, or sexist remarks?  Do I get a choice?  We should all take the mote out of our own eye so we can see more clearly to take the splinter out of someone else's eye.

    This is Day 1 and he has key cabinet members in place with more to come. In the two months preceding his entry into the WH he has made significant progress and setting his plan and goals into play. The women's marches are not based on what Trump did, as he wasn't president until 3 days ago. They are a left over from the liberal PC and their social reengineering. Why didn't these women march during the last 8 years? These are not new issues, they have been around since 1974. And speaking of SCOTUS, Roe v Wade has been in dispute in every presidential election since 74. The economy and the job market that Trump is trying to fix is more important than Roe v Wade because without people being able to work and support themselves how is the country going to prosper. The SCOTUS also has a dismal record with their decisions. They have supported the spiraling increase in the size and scope of the federal govt. They used the Interstate Commerce Clause to falsely make everything look like a federal issue. That was not the intent of the ICC. They have also been against any legal attack on the application of the Income Tax. The 16th amendment by definition is constitutional, but its statute codification, the IRS TAX court, the loss of freedoms given to people by the 4th and 5th amendments has resulted.
    The biggest weakness in SCOTUS decision which become the de facto law of the land is the simple majority. This ignores that wisdom of 4 SC justices in the 5-4 decision. I like the 8 member court, as it takes at least a 5-3 decision. SCOTUS decisions would be better at 7-2 to be meaningful and actually decide a national issue. Bush and Obama created this staggering national debt, and president Trump has a plan of action, but again, this is day 1. It took God six days, and you want Trump to do it in one.

      Who in the world would place any significance on an "Approval Rating" of anyone's work after (or was it even before?)  a leader's first day on the job?!

      It seems to be coming from CNN and MSM and most any liberal.

    When you look at the vast organization of the State, Treasury and all other departments, you'll see that they will continue to run just fine without a secretary at their head for a few weeks.

      Yes, but the US Treasury, thanks to Obama, just dished out a last minute plane load of cash to Pakistan!
