Trump approval levels are nowhere near Obama's at the same point in his first term. Obama's was still positive. Trump's are not.

A way I think Trump could change the news cycle and maybe write himself into the history books as one of the most important presidents in history. Would be to fix at least part of the nuclear problem...
Right now there is almost no check and balance between the president and launching nuclear weapons, which could likely end the species..
What if Russia and the US teamed up to unmake the 7 min launch window????
Take that power away from one man who changes every 4 years, and create a coalition of maybe 4 individuals where you need 3 of them to agree..
Maybe the president, a representative of the military who does not answer to the president , Then maybe a representative from both congress and the senate or maybe the Supreme Court.
Maybe create a network where all the nuclear officials keep open channels of communications open reguardless of politics.. that should help prevent any mixed signals or accidental launches.
Work out an agreement where all the nuclear powers at least agree to do the same and form their own commissions for maintaining communication if nothing else..
How does the media spin that in a bad way??
The left couldn't...
Trump actually relinquishing power and helping to add stop gaps to prevent annihilation?!?!
Imho he couldnt lose...
Even if they wrapped in the Russian collusion stuff into the story, trump is cedeing power to make the world a better place..
You can't sell that in a bad way..

Trump could do nothing and he would be remembered as a far better president than Obama who destroyed and divided the country. Increased the divide between rich and poor etc.
Not sure on nuclear launches but I think Trump will make America better and hopefully GREAT again.
