KONFRONTASI-His signature executive order has been halted by the courts twice. His first piece of signature legislation never got close to passing either chamber. His approval rating has dipped lower than Barack Obama's and Bill Clinton's ever were. He faces an FBI investigation into alleged ties between his campaign and Russia. And his former top aide is seeking an immunity deal in that probe.

None of this is to say that Donald Trump won't be a successful president. But his first 72 days have been rough — objectively.
