And so on Monday, he made his way through another series of stunning controversies and scandalous twists that would set scandals for another administration.
"Do you know what is most shocking (part of it) – that it is no longer shocking," Democrat Elliott Engel, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told Erin Burnett.  "I'm almost numb. It's one after another, after another."
Another day, which is breaking logic in Washington, is unlikely to make a dent in the presidency, full of unwavering support from the GOP.
only the mildest republican statements of concern – and relief – over the cancellation of Trump's large Afghan photograph of Camp David.
Impossible to maintain
The eternal cycle of chaos of the president prevents him from over-controlling every political storm. And he knows that his voters have taken his advice to believe only the version of reality he creates for them.
As the new week comes, Washington is still absorbing the stunning news – shattered by Trump on Twitter, of course – that he planned and then canceled talks at Camp David with the Taliban and the Afghan government, which are cautious of striving. to withdraw US troops as quickly as possible from the country.
Even Trump may not have gotten away with this – perhaps the factor behind his decision not to move forward that casts serious doubt on his administration's peace initiative.
Before the morning came out, Trump's mysterious relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin was again in the spotlight.
A person directly involved in the affair said the move was prompted, in part, by concerns that Trump and his administration had incorrect intelligence that could help detect the asset. The story raised new concerns about the White House's domestic security process and Trump's rough relations with US intelligence services.
The White House stated that CNN's report was incorrect.
Trump rejects claims of corruption
He did not dispute that such a move would be unethical. The president has insisted – with the craze his supporters love – that he is just too rich to need help.
"I will give my financial status. And you will be extremely shocked that the numbers are many, many times what you think, "said Trump, who, unlike other presidents, has refused to release his tax returns and get rid of his business completely."
Trump also defends states that overturn the GOP presidential primaries, saying that Republican dissidents who want to challenge him are "laughing."
It only took a few hours, to break the next stunning agent.
A spokesman for the Commerce Department said the story was false.
Far from the first time, Trump's subordinates have felt pressured to protect their roses or show allegiance. Several cabinet meetings have turned into lengthy sessions where agency heads praise the president.
But the report casts a bad light on the administration, which often seems to corrode the integrity on which good governance relies on the consent of the governed.  The ultimate test of Trump's political endurance will come only in November 2020.
But if Monday is any guide, his opponents will have to sketch a strong campaign message to prevent his style from being translated into his efforts to keep him accountable.
