3 words to describe: Trumps presidency

3 words to describe: Trump’s presidency

By Associated Press | April 24, 2017

President Donald Trump poses for a portrait in the Oval Office in Washington, Friday, April 21, 2017.

He's flouted conventions of the institution by holding on to his business, hiring family members as advisers and refusing to release his tax returns. He's tested conventional political wisdom by eschewing travel, church, transparency, discipline, consistency and decorum. But the presidency is also having an impact on Trump, prompting him, at times, to play the role of traditional president. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)
