"You wouldn't know it from watching the news - America is winning again and President Trump is making America great again", a voice-over said.
A USA -based human rights group says President Donald Trump should not roll out the White House red carpet for Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte, whom it accused of being a "mastermind" of mass murder because of his anti-drug crackdown in which thousands have died.
"I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles way from Washington's swamp", he said, "spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people, right?"
President Donald Trump could be on the verge of marking two significant legislative accomplishments at the start of his presidency.
"This event is about celebrating the First Amendment and free speech. And I'm sure that if war breaks out in the Korean Peninsula, the imponderables of life is really, you can not foresee, even project what will happen".
Reveling in the cheers in Harrisburg, Trump made reference again to his upset victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania, which he said "carried us to a big, handsome win on November 8".
As expected, the President also addressed some of the biggest issues he has tried to tackle during his first 100 days in office.
In the "Face the Nation" interview, it became clear that Trump does not understand what is in the bill he so vocally supports.
During CNN coverage following the speech itself on Saturday, Stelter said "it is insidious, it is poisonous, and I think for the journalists in this room - just trying to do their best work - it is disappointing to continue to hear the president taking this tone".
The US president also reaffirmed his allegiance to those he governs. He did, however, order a missile strike in Syria, breaking his pledge of an "America First" foreign policy.
President Donald Trump on Saturday marked his 100th day in office by claiming historic action on his agenda, renewing promises on health care and taxes and attacking the news media that he says is misleading Americans.
This weekend, an annual tradition took place in Washington, D.C. - the White House Correspondents' Dinner.
The only other president to skip the dinner was Ronald Reagan, who was absent because he was recovering in hospital after being shot in 1981. The last president to snub the elite gathering was Jimmy Carter.
Spicer is declining to offer a timeline of when the House might vote on the bill to repeal and replace the health care law approved under former President Barack Obama. Trump ended up being the butt of the jokes that night from comedian Seth Meyers and Obama himself.
Meanwhile, North Korea's missile launch Saturday signalled its continued defiance against the U.S., China and other nations, on which Trump tweeted: "Bad!" After serving as commander in chief for 100 days, his achievements, as well as shortfalls, were being closely scrutinized.
The failure of the original health care bill was a heavy blow in the early days of the Trump administration.
The campaign released a statement, in which it called the president's first 100 days "historic". He was giving a campaign-style rally in Pennsylvania.
