The United States' economy is growing at a modest pace, with low unemployment and inflation.Even if Trump has maintained the support of his base, his post-inauguration honeymoon proved to be fleeting.So far, Trump has failed to deliver any major legislative policy achievements. To that end, Trump's decision to appoint John Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, as White House chief of staff was an important first step. So, too, were the decisions to push out his hard-edged chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and to carry out a deliberative Afghanistan policy review, which changed Trump's mind about U.S. policy there. Such opportunities do sometimes present themselves for U.S. presidents.Similarly, Ronald Reagan endured large Republican losses in the 1982 midterm election. At that time, the U.S. was in a deep recession, owing to the Federal Reserve's tough disinflation policy, which Reagan had supported. Trump, for his part, has made a point of being more forceful than Obama with allies and foes on security matters.
