FILE - In this Dec. 22, 2017, file photo, President Donald Trump speaks with reporters in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington. Trump is threatening to cut off aid money to the Palestinian Authority and acknowledging that the Middle East peace process appears to be stalled. Trump says in a pair of tweets that, “we pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue ...peace treaty with Israel.”

If you think Trump will change in the new year, think again, the left says. A roundup of editorials Wednesday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the left:

Trump making little progress on promises to voters

From Robert Reich: How is Trump doing on keeping his promises? Not so great.

This moment is about Iran, not about Trump

From CNN: Trump is wrong if he wants to make the protests in Iran about the U.S., or, worse, about him.

New year, same Trump

From columnist Dana Milbank: It didn’t take Trump long to show his colors in the New Year. It took seven hours and 12 minutes, to be exact.
