welcome back. today, year one ends with the president trump administration. it's ecstasy for supporters and agony for opponents. it's a year none of us will forget. larry is here to break down the highs and lows. thank you for being with us this new year's eve. >> happy to be with you. >> where do we begin? >> how much time do we have? you have to begin at square one. that is the setting. let's recall something here. recall that donald trump was elected under strange, political circumstances, in an incredibly toxic and polarized political environment. on one hand, he won a clear electoral vote victory. he claimed it was the largest margin in memory, the fact is, it ranked 46 of the 58 presidential elections.
remember, too, the problem for trump is hillary clinton received 2.9 million more popular votes than trump, the largest differential in history. why is this important? trump began with no honeymoon. during the transition, only 40% of the public supported him. today, kira, today, 32% support the president. those numbers left him with precious little wiggle room. >> yeah. so, so, looking at those numbers, the president began with little support, especially little political support from the gop. how has that translated in politics? >> it depends on how you feel about the president. do m doe mesically, he ease made huge things. two regulations for every one
new one. he eliminated 3.4 regulations for every new one. that, in fact, is a record. that means changes in environmental regulations, health care, business and banking regulations. the theme here has been government should not be meddling in our lives and the private sector. opponents may think differently. >> right. republicans should be happy about that, in theory. what about trump's relationship with his republican congress? >> well, the dealings here with congress, they have been somewhat problematic, especially since republicans haven't always been on the same page. the one success for the republican president and congress is the tax cut bill that provides benefits for corporations and wealthy individuals. now, how that plays out for the rest of us downstream remains to be seen. >> it sure does. what about foreign policy
changes under president trump? i'm asking every question i can think of while we have time. >> this is important. it's a sleeper. it's where the president has wide latitude to get things done. trump sees that capability. his america first program has taken u.s. foreign policy in a new direction entirely, from international agreement to trade agreements to relations with specific countries. trump has reversed course, reducing american involvement and the clout of the american brand. he's withdrawn the united states. the united nations cultural organizations pulled out of the paris climate accord and the transpacific partnership and threatened to walk away from that. the president has done these things on the grounds that other nations have taken advantage of the united states. it is the first major change in 70 years. >> what about congress? has congress gone along with all of this? >> mostly, yeah.
mostly, but not entirely. the biggest departure came a few months ago when congress overwhelmingly passed sanctions against russia. remember russia, for interference in american elections. something that trump signed only because he knew a veto would be overturned. >> where does that leave us? where does that leave the country as we head into the second year of the trump presidency. >> back to the crystal ball, the one that is still broken. >> you can't tell the future? what? >> sadly. seriously, to begin with, the united states is more polarized today than it was in november, 2016. that's a statement in itself. it's hard to recall a time when the country has been more politically divided. allies praise the president for his boldness and the change agent mentality. critics claim he's failed to fulfill most of his promises, divided a nation and abandoned
america's influence in the world. whether you like or oppose the president, the russia, the russia investigation is still the single most important factor that haunted him in 2017 and will likely continue to haunt him in 2018. most independent observers believe the special counsel, robert mueller is closer to the beginning than the end of the investigation. depending on what mueller finds in 2018, that year under president trump may be more unpredictable, more -- exciting at so many different ways than you have seen this year. >> yeah. i believe it's an impromptu -- trump denied collusion. that's quite a pace. >> larry, thanks. a final look at weather after
good morning. as you see, a little sun breaking through the clouds arnds san francisco. a reminder that it is another spare the air day for the north bay. san francisco, bay and inland east bay. if you think you have had a lot of spare the air days, today makes number 16 through the end of december last year. of course, a wetter year, a lot more wind all the way from november to february. the beginning of this year, last
