How is Trump doing in his first 100 days?

The aggressive use of the CRA by the Trump administration gives the White House and Republicans several small-scale legislative victories to tout despite falling short of pushing through an ObamaCare repeal or other major legislation as the president nears the 100-day mark. And there is plenty of time to do it. History does not judge presidents by what they did in the first 100 days; it judges what they did during their presidencies. Even though it's an artificial barrier.

The new Democratic intensity evident at town halls across the country could complicate Trump's hopes for bipartisan cooperation.

That same day, White House press secretary Sean Spicer asserted that Trump had a successful first 100 days.

Presidents usually chafe at the comparison to FDR, who benefited from a Congress that could hardly say no at a time of economic calamity. Gallup's historical presidential approval numbers show most presidents were near the height of their popularity in the beginning of their first terms.

They cited poll numbers showing Trump has maintained support with most of the voters who put him in office, blaming media coverage on other poll findings that showed his overall approval numbers are historically low for a new president during his early honeymoon period.

HAASS: The problem is there's so many of them.

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

At the Institute of International Finance's policy summit last week, Ryan's senior tax counsel, George Callas, explained that the second-order consequences of slashing corporate tax rates are significant enough that their revenue effects can be detected past the 10-year window even if they expire after three years.

THE FACTS: That's an oversimplification of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation financial obligations, and one Trump has made repeatedly. Trump added that those assessing his early days need to take into account that his is "a different kind of a presidency".

To the extent that he is being held to a measurement he disdains, he has no one to blame but himself. That fact didn't make it into Trump's 100-day bragging.

Most recently on April 13, Trump nullified a Department of Health and Human Services rule that allowed states to withhold federal family planning dollars from clinics that provide abortion services.

One last point: Presidential insecurity isn't harmless, especially for a commander in chief who is obsessed with winning and who seems to see life as a dominance game, where someone or something has to be a loser.

Corker will return to the White House Wednesday alongside all other U.S. senators for a briefing on North Korea from Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Asked by the Associated Press on Friday whether he should be held accountable for meeting the goals of his "100-day contract", Trump hedged. Complicating that campaign promise are the politics of working with the country that reportedly hacked his political opponent to favor him and the reality on the ground in places like Syria, where Russian President Vladimir Putin has labeled as terrorists and even targeted American-backed rebels. "But I think it's got to be kept in context". Trump invested it with a series of promises by which he was to be measured in 100 days, released in an appearance at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on October 22.

"I do change and I am flexible, and I'm proud of that flexibility", Trump said, shortly before authorising air strikes against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad over what Washington says was a sarin attack on civilians.

The 100 days metric for judging a new president came out of Franklin D. Roosevelt's effort to take charge of the Depression-plagued nation during the 100 days of the 1933 Congressional session. Ever since, presidents have bristled at what they considered an impossible standard.
