How to avoid a Trump presidency
A look at the biggest challenges facing Donald Trump as he seeks to reclaim the White House and win reelection in November.
More from The Washington Post: The president’s first month in office has been tumultuous and, in many ways, disastrous.
Here’s what we know so far about his first year in office.
President Trump speaks at a rally in Phoenix on Feb. 11, 2020.
In the middle of a contentious campaign season, the president is already being questioned about his handling of a terrorist attack in Nice, France, on Bastille Day, a day that he claimed was caused by an Islamist group.
Trump has dismissed the attack as a hoax, while insisting he was the victim of an “act of terror.”
The president has blamed both the media and the left for the attack, and blamed his political rivals for a “rigged system” that is stacked against him.
He has not made any public statements on the matter, which has left him at odds with his own party and his own base of supporters.
Trump has accused Democratic politicians of wanting to bring back a “toxic” political environment that has seen his popularity plummet in recent months.
The president and his top advisers have also said they will continue to focus on economic and social issues, which are a key focus of the incoming administration.
But Trump’s approval rating has been in the red over the past few weeks, as his administration has been criticized for taking actions that critics say are too lenient toward undocumented immigrants and Muslims.
The administration has also been criticized over its handling of the crisis in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a car rammed into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one woman and injuring more than a dozen.
The president has also faced backlash from his base for some of his comments on social media, which have led to an exodus of some of Trump’s most loyal supporters from the administration.
In a statement Friday, Trump said he “remains confident in the direction that we are taking our country and the people of this great nation.”
But he added that his team will be doing everything in its power to defeat the forces of evil and to keep the American people safe.
“Trump is scheduled to speak at a campaign rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Sunday, the first day of his presidency.
Trump is seeking reelection in 2020 and has been widely expected to lose.
During his first 100 days, Trump has taken a number of actions that some analysts say are a way to consolidate support from his supporters and shore up his electoral prospects.
Trump also has focused on his economic agenda, including a proposed tax overhaul and a rollback of regulations, including regulations on the oil and gas industry.
In addition to making the case for his reelection, Trump is also planning a number a policy announcements during his first week in office, including his executive orders and his nomination of a Supreme Court justice.
Trump is expected to nominate a conservative, hard-line judge to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court.
