But that's been dwarfed by the failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with a Republican health plan and ongoing questions about Russia's interactions with the Trump presidential campaign.
The final tally for the popular vote was 48.2 percent for Clinton, 46.1 percent for Trump.
Sixty-seven percent of respondents said the Democratic Party was out of touch, as did 62% for the Republican Party. 96 percent of Trump voters said they would vote for him again if the election were held today, while only 2 percent said they regret voting for him and 1 percent had no opinion.
Those conducting the survey maintain that Trump faces a number of significant challenges, with many participants expressing concern that he is lacking a presidential demeanor.
Recent presidents have enjoyed majority approval ratings 100 days into their presidencies - Barack Obama had a 61% approval rating, while George W. Bush was at 56% and Bill Clinton was at 52%. "ABC News/Washington Post Poll (wrong big on election) said nearly all stand by their vote on me & 53% said, strong leader".
When looking at Trump's follow-through with what he proclaimed on the campaign trail, Americans have mixed reactions.
The 100 day mark isn't entirely arbitrary.
Trump "is going on an executive order frenzy in the final week of his first 100 days", Axios reported. According to Gallup's latest weekly tracking poll of the president's performance, published Sunday, 40 percent of Americans approve of the job the president is doing - with 54 percent saying they disapprove. It had him ahead 46 percent to 43 percent.
"No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days", Trump said April 18 before an audience of manufacturing workers and technical students at the headquarters of Snap-On, a Wisconsin-based manufacturing company. "Views turn negative, as noted, on how much Trump has accomplished in his first three months".
Bipartisan differences and other demographic factors also drew contrasting lines when it came to Americans' take on some of Trump's decisions. "Forty-nine percent disapprove. Overall approval of the president's performance is at its highest level since early March".
