On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States. Can he and Congressional Republicans follow through on their often disparate promises? How does a president outside the political mainstream navigate entrenched legislators, bureaucrats and lobbyists? What major domestic and foreign challenges await the new administration?
