Trump approaches 100 days in power

Trump approaches 100 days in power

Likewise, he has signed 28 bills into law, according to the White House, the most of any president in almost seven decades.

Why, yes, I do remember that.

Yet a 14-page draft titled "100 Days Of Accomplishments" lists in detail everything the administration plans to take credit for by the end of next weekend.

President Donald Trump is under heavy scrutiny as the first symbolic milestone of his presidency fast approaches - but it seems Trump is giving himself a pass on his 100-days marker coming up on April 29.

We're just days away from the 100-day mark on Donald Trump's presidency, and the latest polls show him having a 42% approval rating, making him the least popular president at this point in a presidency in modern history.

Broadly speaking, there are two ways to look at this boast from Team Trump. The percentage of Republicans who think Trump will unite the country has fallen from 81% to 68%, that he can effectively manage government from 93% to 85%, and that he cares about people like you from 91% to 81%.

Some of these measures, in other words, are less examples of governing and more examples of issuing glorified press releases.

Penguins eliminate Blue Jackets with 5-2 win in Game 5
There's huge momentum swings either way. "So it's just kind of a relief to win it". "That's what I'm trying to do". Tortorella obviously had something cooking with the Blue Jackets earning a rare postseason berth.


Le Pen, Macron advance to runoff in French election
Conservative Francois Fillon and hard-left firebrand Jean-Luc Melenchon are both just a few points behind the frontrunners. With almost 90 percent of the vote in, Macron had almost 24 percent of the vote, followed by Le Pen at around 22 percent.


Labour leader says UK election 'establishment vs people'
Under his leadership, the party membership has swelled to more than half a million - about four times that of the Conservatives. Despite the potential electoral disaster, Filby doubted that the vote posed an existential crisis for the 117-year-old party.


But his orders have had little impact and he's failed to deliver on many campaign promises.

Trump's weak defense against prolonged and guaranteed failure is to toss a few missiles or drop a bomb every now and then or saber rattle the usual suspect villains, ISIS, Assad, the Taliban, and the North Koreans. He has backpedalled on an array of issues in recent weeks, including his critiques of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, but his self-proclaimed flexibility means he could move back to where he started just as quickly. If you think he is the kind of guy who will be haunted by things he said in the past, all I have to say is, uh, really? Seventy-four percent of those polled saw voting as the most effective way to create change, and they saw talking about politics and volunteering as important as well. The honeymoon is over, and the president has fought major battles over his policies, initiatives, executive orders, court appointments and programs with Congress, the courts, interest groups and the media. "I'll get everybody together". In November 2015, in reference to Obama, Trump added, "He doesn't work the system". By our calculations, they've got about a month of real-people time left (10 congressional days) to undo rules the Obama administration implemented on its way out the door.

A White House official confirmed to CQ Roll Call that during an evening reception for conservative media outlets, Trump said his administration might secure some border wall funding this week in an omnibus spending bill or try again in September. He doesn't get anything done....

TRUMP: No. 2, from the time I took office till now, you know, it's a very exact thing. "That's the easy way out".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says President Donald Trump has thrown "a monkey wrench" into congressional talks on a catch-all spending bill with his insistence that the measure includes start-up money for a wall along the US border with Mexico. "He just keeps signing". "The Democrats, they have a big advantage in the Electoral College", said Trump, later adding that "the Electoral College is very hard for a Republican to win". What was striking was that his promise of tax relief - something most Americans would love to see - was being directed not to middle-class taxpayers, but to executives of an industry whose 2016 global profits were $35.6 billion. Nobody ever heard of an executive order. "We're only concerned with the down", Trump was quoted as saying. And also when it comes to executing foreign policy, you know, a lot of life is execution or implementation.

I'm afraid the voters who took this rhetoric seriously really were played for suckers.

"We feel very proud of what we've been able to accomplish and fulfill the promises that he made to the American people", Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said.
