SOTU 2018: How is the US faring after a year of Trump?

Donald Trump has claimed that state of the Union is strong, but Al Jazeera looks at some of the 'stats of the Union' to see where his administration is succeeding and where it is failing.

    President Donald Trump, whose first year in office saw near-constant turmoil and division, has delivered his first State of the Union Address, to a joint session of the US Congress in Washington.

    A by-the-numbers look at President Donald Trump's first year in office reveals areas of both progress and peril.

    Al Jazeera's Mereana Hond takes stock of the current state of the US.
