It didn't take Trump long to break another important record. He promised to "drain the swamp"
in Washington during his successful political campaign. That is what the public wanted but he has given them something else. A recent poll by a bipartisan organization found the 44% of the public believes that the Trump administration is corrupt. He has filled the swamp instead of draining it. Ordinarily, the public views Congress as our most corrupt institution. Trump beat Congress on that metric by 6%. That has happened despite the poor performance of the Republican Congress on healthcare reform and their unpopular tax reform bill. Trump defeated a very strong competitor on the corruption metric. Perhaps we have to give the public more credit for perception than they deserved when they put Trump in the White House to clean up the government in Washington.
