President Donald Trump returns to Washington after his Christmas break facing a slew of domestic and international action items.

Fresh off his tax cut and reform victory on Capitol Hill, the president is hoping for more legislative action on his agenda in 2018.

This weekend, he's hosting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., at Camp David to plan out the 2018 legislative itinerary.

GOP leaders are eager to make more progress before lawmakers shift their focus to the midterm elections.

Abroad, the president has taken a strong position supporting Iranian citizens protesting in the streets of Iran for more freedoms.

The Trump administration also continues to focus on North Korea's nuclear aggressions. In his New Year's address, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un repeated nuclear threats against the U.S., saying his country's nuclear forces are now a reality, not a threat, and that he keeps a nuclear button on his desk.

Over the weekend, the president also posted a tweet accusing Pakistan, another nuclear power, of spewing lies and deceit and giving safe harbor to terrorists U.S. forces flush out of Afghanistan while taking billions in American aid.
