Trump's approval rating after his first 100 days is just 41% - the lowest rating of any president over the same period in history. Full of energy and fresh off the campaign trail, a newly inaugurated president will generally try to implement as numerous policies that helped them get elected as possible.
President Donald Trump Friday morning slammed the idea of monitoring a president's first 100 days in office.
Two controversial executive orders barring citizens of certain Muslim-majority countries and refugees from entering the US, for example, were blocked by federal judges amid concerns that the orders amounted to a ban on a religious group. Trump wrote on Twitter.
Since taking office, Trump has managed to get a Supreme Court justice confirmed and is pursuing tougher regulations on immigration. The Politico/Morning Consult poll released Thursday found that 24 percent of voters gave Trump an "F" grade for the first three months of his presidency, and in his own base, 42 percent of Trump voters graded his first 100 days a "B".
As you can see from the photo above, retweeted by Luke Skywalker himself, who knows a thing or two about evil rulers, Trump deserves all kinds of praise for his first 100 days.
His attempt to find a replacement for Obamacare failed to secure enough support among Republicans on Capitol Hill. An infrastructure improvement plan is also on hold, despite the fact that Trump's party controls Congress. He proposed cutting the corporate tax rate from 35 to 15 percent, and proposed consolidating the existing seven individual income-tax brackets into three brackets: 10, 20, and 25 percent.
He has also responded to an alleged chemical attack by Syria's President Bashar Al-Assad, with what was generally seen as moderate, proportional response. He said the plan should be a high priority for the Trump administration. The White House is pushing lawmakers to include funding for construction of the wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, increased defense spending and $18 billion worth of non-defense cuts.
But Spicer suggested the administration has some flexibility and said he is confident there will not be a government shutdown.
