Where Does The Trump Rally Rank After 100 Days?

Trump's first months in office have yielded some tangible successes with a small majority of Americans seeing him as a strong leader and a bigger majority approving of his efforts to pressurize United States companies to keep jobs in this country. "But inside his pressure cooker of a White House, aides and advisers are sweating the next three weeks.The date, April 29, hangs over the West Wing like the sword of Damocles as the unofficial deadline to find its footing -- or else". The foreign policy establishment is big and powerful in the USA, and it is largely bipartisan.

President Trump is complaining about being judged by the first 100 days of his presidency. It's yet another deadline the Trump administration has missed, and worse yet, according to Politico, nobody seems to even know whose responsibility it's been. The White House insisted Thursday that a plan was in the works but did not offer any timetable.

Kennedy holds the highest approval rating of all presidents at 74 percent, 33 points higher than the mark now registered by Trump.

She did not address why the deadline was missed. Trump and Republican lawmakers worked had now worked together to repeal more than a dozen such regulations issued in the waning days of the Obama administration. He had just received an intelligence briefing about Russian hacking and declared that "whether it is our government, organizations, associations or businesses, we need to aggressively combat and stop cyberattacks".

Instead, the strike conformed to his preferred modus operandi: it disregarded established multilateral structures, promoted his reputation for unpredictability and again showed that America can be strong.

A week later he followed up with a tweet, declaring "My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!" However, saying the "media will kill" appears to be a new piece of rhetoric for the president.

Trump reverses himself on 4 campaign positions in just 1 day
President Trump's on-the-job training is exposing how much he didn't know when he was running for the nation's highest office. It turns out that wielding power - as opposed to criticizing it - can change your outlook.

"We must protect federal networks and data".

"On November 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our economy, security to our communities and honesty to our government", the "contract" says, with his signature. Trump was set to sign a separate executive order on cyber that day, but abruptly pulled it without explanation, and since then, there's been confusion concerning who is supposed to be doing what. From his dark Bannon-inspired inaugural address highlighting American "carnage" and "decay", to his imperious dismissal and derogation of US institutions from the intelligence service to the courts and the media, to his insulting people he must work with in congress, to his blatant deceit and hypocrisy, to his empty threats and bluster that diminish his credibility, Trump has made every mistake one could imagine.

But! Wait! There's a bunch of things wrong with this Trump tweet.

Despite his overall standing, pollsters found Trump still remains as popular as ever among his GOP base, with 87 percent of republicans approving of his first-quarter showing.

Trump needn't look as far back as FDR to see a president who got off to a fast start. But his first major legislative initiative, replacing the Affordable Care Act, failed in dramatic fashion last month, and a Trump-backed tax reform plan has not yet taken the floor in Congress.

Until Trump, only Johnson and Ronald Reagan were considered effective in their first 100 days.
