What has Trump done during his first 100 days? His accomplishments and kept promises

30 Apr 2017 04:01:00

Filed under: News, Politics, White HousePresident Trump has been criticized by both the left and right over his accomplishments (or for some, lack thereof) during his first 100 days in the White House. But has Trump truly been a do-nothing president?Order reversing multiple Obama-era offshore drilling restrictions, review of limits on drilling locations.Order directing a review of national monument designations from prior administrations.Order freezing hiring for some federal government workers, excluding the military.Orders reviving both the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.Order issuing a five year-ban on officials becoming lobbyists after leaving government work, along with a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.Order mandating agencies abolish two regulations for ever new regulation introduced.Increase of immigration enforcement: President Trump may have had his travel ban blocked multiple times by the courts, but the president has still had an impact on the border through stepping up deportations and increasing immigration enforcement. Since Trump took office, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has reported 35,604 "removals" in January and February of this year, slightly more than former President Obama compared to 35,255 in the first two months of 2017,According to The Guard

Donald Trump just wrote a glowing op-ed about his own first 100 days

29 Apr 2017 20:56:00

Filed under: News, Politics, White House"One hundred days ago, I took the oath of office and made a pledge: We are not merely going to transfer political power from one party to another, but instead are going to transfer that power from Washington, D.C., and give it back to the people," Trump's op-ed began. "In the past 100 days, I have kept that promise — and more."The Washington Post's editorial page editor, Fred Hiatt, told Mic via email the newspaper solicited the piece from the White House."We asked for the piece and were happy to get it," Hiatt said.In his op-ed, Trump touted his "success" at giving the country back to the American people — and above all else, bringing jobs back to the United States."The change began with the termination of the Trans-Pacific Partnership — a 12-nation pact that would have shipped millions more jobs to other countries," Trump wrote, adding that ending the partnership was only the beginning.Donald Trump's first 100 days in office:Trump said government agencies would continue to enforce the new "buy American" rules, which provide preferential treatment to U.S. companies that hire American workers. However, as Mic previously reported, the president doesn't appear to abide by his own rules. Trump's own line of shirts are made in China, Bangladesh, Honduras and Vietnam; Trump's eyeglasses, made in China; and Trump's home goods, made in Turkey, Germany, China, India and Slovenia.In the op-ed, Trump also reiterated his strong desire to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, an agreement he called "the worst trade deal ever" during his presidential campaign. "We've lost nearly a third of our manufacturing jobs in the 23 years since that terrible deal was approved," he wrote.However, according to the Council on Foreign Relations, NAFTA was a contributing factor in the tripling of North American regional trade from $290 billion in 1993 to more than $1.1 trillion in 2016.With rather interesting timing — given thousands of people marched outside the White House on Saturday for the People's Climate March — Trump gloated, "We've canceled restrictions on the production of oil, natural gas and clean coal."Melania's noteworthy moments during Trump's first 100 days:Trump also bragged about his role in ending sanctuary cities, fighting drug cartels and bombing Syria. He boasted about being the first president in 136 years to confirm a new Supreme Court justice in the first 100 days of an administration, but that was more a timing coincidence than an accomplishment. As Politifact reported, "The reality is that very few presidents are presented with the opportunity to appoint and confirm a new Supreme Court justice within their first 100 days. Other than Trump, just four presidents since 1900 have had that chance: Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon, Harry Truman and William Harding."And, in perhaps the op-ed's oddest paragraph — published on the website of one of the nation's most-read newspapers — Trump blasted the mainstream media for allegedly "concealing" America's issues."The same establishment media that concealed these problems — and profited from them — is obviously not going to tell this story. That is why we are taking our message directly to America," Trump wrote in the opinion pages of the very definition of establishment media. "We have opened the White House doors to listen, engage and act. We've invited in labor leaders, factory owners, police officers, farmers, veterans and Democrats, Republicans and independents."Hiatt, the Post editorial page editor, did not respond to Mic's second question about Trump's use of the paper's opinion page to attack the "establishment media."Looking back at President Obama's first 100 days:Read more... Permalink | Email this | Linking Blogs | Comments
