Trump reverses himself on NATO, China, Russia and more
President Donald Trump hasn't been in the White House for 100 days, yet he's already reversed himself on many of his key campaign promises.
The action nullifies a rule finalized in former President Barack Obama's last days in office to prevent the defunding of family-planning services exclusively because a facility performs abortions. Tillerson said Syria's government had committed more than 50 attacks using chlorine or other chemical weapons over the duration of the conflict.
Mahaffee, of the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, says that in the final analysis, Trump's flip-flops probably won't hurt his overall approval ratings. He has backup on this point from an important ally: Stoltenberg.
The evolving policy appears to reflect less of the influence of his campaign team and more the views of Defence Secretary James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and national security adviser H.R. McMaster, all of whom are wary of Russian Federation.
Some sources say the President is most influenced by the last person who talked to him.
Putin told Russian TV in an interview Wednesday that under Trump, the relationship between Washington and Moscow had "worsened".

JUDY WOODRUFF: And you think that war going in the right direction, though? But we think there are two particular reasons to take heart from his recent shifts regarding the USA role in the world.
That's an attractive prospect for a president eager for the wins he promised - after a hard first few months that saw much of his agenda, including his signature travel ban and high-profile attempt at overhauling health care, blocked by Congress and the courts. He was able to carve out a niche within the party by leading people to believe that his tough talk on things like immigration or China's currency policies were evidence of a deep-rooted conservatism and commitment to ideology that he would bring to the White House.
"They want the government involved in certain financial deals", Scissors says. Chinese companies were accused of acting as enablers of North Korea's nuclear missile program, and Russian Federation was publicly chastised for its role in Syria, even as Moscow and Damascus have both said USA intervention is helping the terrorists they are fighting.
He adds that Beijing, meanwhile, has become "more proactive and bold" on the North Korea issue, for example, banning North Korean coal imports to China for the rest of the year.
In doing so, Trump is departing from some of the radical changes he promised, and moving toward the positions of his predecessors.
"Now it's no longer obsolete", Mr. Trump said, overturning a campaign position that drew intense criticism from Democrats and Republicans.
