President Trump will mark 100 days in office on Saturday. The president has dismissed the 100-day period as a “ridiculous” standard to measure his administration’s progress, but he’s also claimed that “no administration has accomplished more” in its first few months than his own.
Is that true? It’s hard to say for sure – Mr. Trump did not provide any specifics or qualify his assertion in a way that would allow for fact-checking. By some measures, Mr. Trump has had a particularly active presidency thus far. But by other measures, the opposite is true.
Here’s a look at President Trump’s first 100 days, by the numbers. Note: this piece will be updated over the next few days to account for any new developments.
And make sure you tune into Face the Nation this Sunday for the first part of John Dickerson’s interview with President Trump, taping at the White House and in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Saturday, April 29th, Mr. Trump’s 100th day in office. More of the interview will air in a live broadcast of CBS This Morning from the East Room of the White House on Monday, May 1st.
