In his first five months in office, U.S. President Donald Trump has worked vigorously to reverse or eliminate legislation, international agreements and executive actions taken during the Obama Administration.

Already, the new president has withdrawn the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement and just last week, Trump canceled what he called a one-sided deal with Cuba.

During his first overseas trip as president, Trump pledged his loyalties to Israel and Saudi Arabia while putting NATO allies on notice.

As for China, Trump has been busy. Following the Florida summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping, the U.S. and China launched a 100-day plan aimed at improving trade cooperation.

The two countries are also working together to resolve the DPRK nuclear issues.
