The last I checked the only action Trump has taken, aside from selecting soldiers and billionaires for his cabinet, was to sign the 'travel ban'. That got soundly checked and balanced by a federal judge. Not sure how/where he has been stampeding through those checks and balances.

For me, the most interesting part of this whole soap opera is seeing the good in the USA prevail over a lot of the ridiculousness we're seeing come out of the white house. Even today CNN is showing clips of Republican senators getting earfuls from their constituents. Those senators, I believe, are going to be putting Trump on a short leash very soon.

Oh, and NAFTA has gone from being 'torn up' to 'tweaked here and there' with regards to Canada and just today Tillerson is on his way to Mexico to allay their fears for the agreement. During the flight he'll be looking up how to say 'tweak here and there' in Spanish I'm sure.

I lived through eight years of Dubya/Cheney and his dad before that and Reagan. The sky still hasn't fallen. Honestly I think Trump is almost comic relief compared to some of those guys. And yes i mean that. Bush Sr goes from heading the CIA to heading the presidency? Yikes! Cheney (you know Bush Jr was out playing the sandbox) starts a war to increase the valuation of his holdings? Oh boy. Trump would have to do something uuuuge to beat that.
