Grade the President: Tell us how you think Trump did this week

The theme of President Trump’s ninth week in office: revelation.

First, FBI Director James B. Comey confirmed that his agency is investigating Russia’s interference in the U.S. presidential election and whether there was “coordination” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Then, we learned that Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, had worked for a Russian billionaire 10 years ago to advance President Vladimir Putin’s agenda. To top it off, Rep. Devin Nunes, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, announced that U.S. intelligence officials had inadvertently intercepted communications by Trump transition team members. And then he wasn’t so sure.

And of course the big news of the week was the repeal of Obamacare -- or really the failure to repeal. See what else happened this week.

L.A. Times deputy editorial page editor Jon Healey gave Trump a C-minus during week nine. Scroll below to see what he had to say, and tell us what grade you’d give Trump.
