Nearing 100 days with limited accomplishments, Trump calls it a 'ridiculous standard'

Trump complains about measuring him by his first 100 days Trump Mocks 'Ridiculous Standard' of First 100 Days: 'Media Will Kill'

Congress also must pass a new spending package by next Friday night, or the government will shut down next Saturday, which happens to be Mr. Trump's 100th day in office.

His regime has also been marked by controversy over USA intervention in Syria, and widespread dismay at his choice of the conservative Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

But Trump's claim about the "ridiculous standard" he thinks he's being held to is odd, because during the campaign and just after, Trump himself repeatedly touted the importance of his first 100 days in office.

Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz won't run for re-election
Despite his announcement to not run for anything in 2018, Chaffetz did not close the door on a future political run. As of 16 April 2017, Democratic challenger Kathryn Allen had outpaced Chaffetz in fundraising by nearly $400,000.

Two controversial executive orders barring citizens of certain Muslim-majority countries and refugees from entering the US, for example, were blocked by federal judges amid concerns that the orders amounted to a ban on a religious group. He has, however, made headway on getting his Supreme Court pick confirmed, rolling back regulations, and pushing "clean coal".

During the campaign, Trump promoted a "100-day action plan" he characterized as "a contract between myself and the American voter - and begins with restoring honesty and accountability, and bringing change to Washington".

The first 100 days of a presidency generally serve as a barometer for what a new administration will be able to accomplish during its term.

These days, Trump seems torn between downplaying expectations and asserting, despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary, that the early days of his administration have been a success.

The first 100 days of a first-term president is often used to measure success and set a roadmap for future policy issues.

The only one of those 10 legislative items introduced to this point is the House health-care bill, which Trump embraced only to see collapse in dramatic fashion last month. By contrast, Trump aides said, the law was used only once before by other presidents.

"There are those that say I've done more than anybody in 100 days", Trump said February 28 on Fox.
