President fulfills long list of campaign promises

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Noting that Saturday, April 30, 2017, marks President Trump’s 100th day as president, the White House has begun listing accomplishments.

“In his First 100 Days President Trump has taken dramatic steps to undo burdensome regulations, restore law and order, bolster our military, revive the American dream, change Washington by holding it accountable, put the American worker first and confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch,” the White House press office said in a statement published Monday.

“The people who put him in office can see and feel the promises he is delivering on. According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, an incredible 96% of those who supported the President in November say they’d do it again today,” the White House statement continued.

The White House also summed up President Trump’s first 100 days in office “by the numbers, noting the following:

  • Enacted more legislation and signed more executive orders in the First 100 days than any president in a half century;
  • Enacted 28 pieces of legislation, more than any other president since Truman;
  • Signed 25 executive orders, the most of any 100 days in over 50 years (will be over 30 by day 100);
  • Achieved first Supreme Court Confirmation in 100 days since 1881;
  • Instituted tough immigration policies that have driven illegal border crossings to a 17-year low;
  • Removed more job-killing regulations through legislation than any president in U.S. history;
  • Estimated savings: $18 billion annually;
  • Economic optimism has been renewed, with consumer confidence reaching its highest level in 16 years; and
  • Ordered the toughest new rules to stop the revolving door between Washington lobbyists and government officials in history.

The Associated Press reported on March 3, 2017 that according to the U.S. Department of Labor, unemployment claims dropped by 19,000 from 242,000 the previous week to the lowest level in 44 years, since March 1973, when Richard Nixon was president.

The Labor Department further reported that 2.07 million Americans are collecting unemployment insurance, down more than 7 percent from a year ago.

The U.S. job market is solid, with employers adding a healthy 227,000 jobs in January, pushing the unemployment rate to 4.8 percent, close to what economists consider full employment.

On Feb. 28, 2017, Fox News reported there was a significant drop in illegal immigration across the southwest border during President Trump’s first month in office compared to that of the last three months of the Obama presidency, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB).

In January 2017, 31,575 individuals were taken into custody between ports of entry on the southwest border, compared with an average of more than 45,000 for each of the previous three months, according to the CPB.

    True, Trump has delivered in many areas and obviously is incalculably
    better than Clinton. However, when given a chance he has packed his
    appointees with bankers such as Goldman Sachs, appointed corporate heads
    and generals who must hate Eisenhower’s warning against the
    military/industrial complex, and been adventuresome on the international
    front violating his campaign promises. He would get a good grade on
    domestic affairs but getting close to failing on international affairs.
    And, then there is Kushner who should be fired immediately if not
    sooner. Trump should know that in investments the negatives outweigh and

    “trump” the positives. Don’t invest in something regardless of the positive if the

    negatives can bankrupt you. We did not elect Trump to fulfill half his promises.

    He promised he would fulfill all. We did not invest in Trump to accept his negatives.

        Actually I’m more principally conservative than Trump or you. Do you just Pavlovian react or are you simply naive to the extreme concerning those groups responsible for our loss of Constitutional rights and emergence into globalism? Instead of mindlessly reacting, try educating yourself on such groups as the CFR, Trilateral Commission, Club of Rome, Bilderbergers, etc. that Trump has packed his administration; and then you just might not appear so naive. You must have liked Obama, since he used the same ilk. Likewise, the Bushes, Clintons, etc. Better yet, you may be like some people who lack the mental capacity to be enlightened and should be confined to sucking their thumbs in a corner. Others just like being boiled slowly like the proverbial frog. I’m guessing it is a 100 to 1 chance you will continue to fit in the last two groups rather than stave off mental retardation in educating yourself.

  • hiddeninplainsight

    With all Trump has been doing it is just unbelievable the media bias against him – and these people moaning! Really? Are they even paying attention?

  • Heart and Soul

    President Trump is the solution the only problem is the swamp called the Establishment they are preventing the solutions and trying to force USA into the old policies.

  • Still Alive

    I never expected him to accomplish everything he set out to do in 100 days. I am impressed he did as well as he did. Of course, I would’ve liked to have seen him do everything he said he would do, but I am glad he has done what he has done, with some exceptions in his foreign policy and relations.
    So I see this as good news.
