It’s a new year, but Donald Trump is facing the same old problems. Here are just some of the challenges looming as the U.S. president returns to work in Washington today:

The Mueller probe: Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election has already produced the indictment of Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and guilty pleas by two campaign aides. The big question is who’s next? Trump, who had sought to discredit the probe as a partisan witch hunt, told the New York Times last week that he believed Mueller was “going to be fair.”
The midterms: Fresh off last month’s upset Senate win in Alabama, Democrats are gunning for congressional seats in November — perhaps enough to take back the U.S. House. Frustrations with the implementation of the Republicans’ sweeping tax overhaul may help them along.
Global hot spots: 2018 is rife with foreign policy risks for Trump. As anti-government protests roil Iran, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un began the new year warning that “the nuclear button is always on my desk.”
