Donald Trump is celebrating his first 100 days in the White House on Saturday as one of the most successful in USA history despite widespread criticism over a presidency plagued by disruption, confusion and chaos. "America is winning, and Donald Trump is making American great again".
Fox News, a favorite among conservatives, topped its website with an article praising Trump's record under the headline: "100 days of disruption: How Trump rewrote the presidential playbook as Dems tried to derail plans".
He continues to maintain the media is reporting fake news in its coverage of his time in the White House so far, which has been marked by controversy after controversy.
Trump is set to visit the Ames tool factory in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, which has manufactured shovels since 1774, and then hold a campaign-style rally in Harrisburg, the state capital. "My Administration is the first in the modern political era to confirm a new Supreme Court Justice in the first 100 days - the last time it happened was 136 years ago in 1881".
He said he was now to "get ready for the great, great battles to come and that we will win in every case". "It put the countries of this world on notice that the sellout of the American worker was over", he said.
"We are going to keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country", he said to applause and cheers of "USA!"
"Most importantly, we're bringing back jobs", he says. It does not include any messages regarding Election Day 2020 - Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020 - but Trump filed for re-election on his inauguration day and has already begun holding rallies for supporters.
That is why the U.S. has withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Trump said. He described the pact, meant to curb global warming, as an impediment to United States economic growth.
From his first day in office, Mr. Trump said, "I have governed by a simple idea, my only allegiance is to you, our wonderful citizens".
The White House's repeated failure to pass health care reform in the House is hardly a good omen for the rest of its legislative agenda.
"It's a false standard, 100 days, but I have to tell you, I don't think anybody has done what we've been able to do in 100 days, so we're very happy".
Although past presidents have routinely attended the Washington event, Trump boycotted it this year, highlighting his disdain for the media.
