President Trump is continuing to wage his imaginary war against mainstream media. He believes a lot has been accomplished (nothing has been accomplished) under his leadership but that members of the media are refusing to talk about his accomplishments.
During a talk at a Wisconsin tool factory Trump claimed “no administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days.”
“No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!” Trump later tweeted.
Trump has made it a point to attack major media outlets and bloggers on a regular basis. This time around Trump appears to be attempting to set a low benchmark in an attempt to get any positive press he desperately needs.
April 29 will mark the President’s first 100 days in office. While his health care proposal was pulled and his immigration ban was quickly challenged and defeated by the court system, Trump still believes he is the best 100-day president.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt, in comparison, signed a staggering 76 pieces of legislation, including 15 major overhauls and new programs during his first 100 days in office. He accomplished those goals in the midst of the Great Depression.
Illegal immigration is still a major problem in the United States, Trump has failed to introduce his full tax overhaul, and he continues to pick fights with random people on Twitter.
“You’re going to have such great healthcare at a tiny fraction of the cost and it’s going to be so easy,” Trump said during an October 2016 rally.
Trump has come under fire for claiming “nobody knew health care was so complicated” and has managed to alienate allies in the UK, South Korea, Germany, and Australia thanks to his ignorant and historically inaccurate comments.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer defended the Trump administration’s accomplishments on Wednesday.
“Look at the record that he’s achieved over these first 90 days,” Spicer told Fox News’ “The First 100 Days.” “It’s very clear that he’s committed to the conservative principles and agenda that he outlined in the campaign.”
