These were the first 12 days of President Donald J. Trump asa the President of the #United States and even though he is not a very popular President, since ever, but he could have done a lot to turn the entire picture around, however, that has not happened till now. While many of his earlier supporters believed that Trump is a much more transparent Presidential candidate and he won’t do all that he had said during his campaign, but many of his promises are coming to life, which has definitely resulted in making the people believe that he would be acting as the most extreme version of himself during his term at office.

The current government is not afraid to lie to the press and to their people which bring huge objection regarding the entire credibility of Trump’s governing. There were some extreme steps taken in just a few days which are a clear example of how Trump does not want to make, the people against him, happy. A.k.a the other majority of Americans who didn’t support him and voted for someone else in the first place.
