Trump's presidency, one year in: 365 days of outrageous tweets and blunders

Since he came to office one year ago, US President Donald Trump has posted an average of seven messages on Twitter per day. It's a year that's been filled with not just tweets, but also outrageous live comments unlike any heard from a US president before. We take a look back at Trump's major tweets and blunders.

Also this week, reports broke that former Trump strategist Steve Bannon had been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury. That's the latest in the ongoing investigation into whether or not there was collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and Russia. And while the official investigation continues, regular Americans are also making their own case in hopes of ousting the 45th President of the United States.

Meanwhile, for his sixth trip to Latin America, Pope Francis is visiting Chile and Peru. It's a controversial trip, where members of the clergy are engulfed in a child sex scandal dating back decades. The Catholic Church's approval rating in Chile is just 36 percent, the lowest of any South American country.

Finally, we'll take you to a regular house on a regular street in California that turned out to be a place of horror. Authorities say parents David and Louise Turpin tortured and held captive their thirteen children, aged from two to 29 years old.
