President Donald Trump

Since the successful campaign that led to his 2016 election, Donald J. Trump has defiantly flipped the presidential script, with chaos and deliberate combativeness a new norm of sorts in White House briefings, staffing turnover, and in the cultural exchanges that define an ever-more-divided nation. The nation is even divided about the degree to which Trump is directly or indirectly accountable for changes in civil discourse, with some citing his rhetoric and policies as a spur for hate crimes and others claiming he is being unfairly demonized by the press. Millions of people around the globe (not to mention many Americans) claim to be baffled by the actual personality at the center of it all, and those alarmed by his tactics and policies seek to shore up their own emotional reactivity and to navigate the civic, legal and ideological battles playing out daily, from Twitter to the federal courts.
