President Trump Calls 100-Day Assessment 'Ridiculous'

President Trump Calls 100-Day Assessment 'Ridiculous'

Trump is set to hit the symbolic 100-day mark in his presidency on April 29.

His regime has also been marked by controversy over U.S. intervention in Syria, and widespread dismay at his choice of the conservative Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

Trump tweeted Friday morning that "no matter what I accomplish during this ridiculous standard of the first 100 days", media organizations "will kill!"

Before President Trump scoffed at the "ridiculous standard" of measuring a leader's success by his first 100 days in office, he signed and delivered a two-page contract outlining his "100-day action plan to Make America Great Again". After a rocky period during his first few weeks, when an executive order to block the entry of citizens from six Muslim-majority countries was blocked by the court and his national security advisor, Mike Flynn, was obliged to stand down after it was revealed he lied about a conversation with a Russian diplomat.

The first 100 days of a new administration are generally understood to be among the busiest, when a freshly-sworn-in president can begin making good on promises he made during the preceding campaign. He said he has accomplished "a lot", including the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

In November, President-elect Trump even posted a video about "policy plan for the first 100 days". Those early days are typically considered a bellwether for a presidential administration and its ability to govern. There is chatter, for example, about Republicans reviving the legislation in the House to repeal and replace Obamacare next week. Those included bills to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, dramatically cut taxes, spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investments and significantly expand school choice.

Trump and his aides have repeatedly denied any collusion with Moscow, and the president himself has called the investigations a "witch hunt" akin to McCarthyism during the Cold War.
