Trump’s First 100 Days

After wading waste high thru all the crap articles and fake news, this is a very accurate list of the Trump Administration Accomplishments in the First 100 Days

Advertisements

I put my waist high crap waders on to give to you President Trump’s First 100 Days. 

1st100days

It surely hasn’t been uneventful. 

If you listen to the mainstream media (MSM) you will hear something like this:
Donald Trump’s presidency is the ‘most failed first 100 days ever’, says US historian
MARCH 22, 2017

I’m not even going to quote this article, because it’s fake news, click bait and this is why; President Trump’s 100th day in office was Saturday April 29, 2017. This article was written on MARCH 22, 2017, which was day 62. How do you judge the first 100 days of an administration with another month to go? So yeah, it’s Fake News! There were countless articles like this to wade through. A bunch of crap.

I think the above article blames the Trump Administration’s alleged failure on the Russian investigation, which still has no substance after almost a year. (If you don’t believe that, you can see my previous blog on that subject. It was just updated May 2, 2017, with the most recent revelations, and still no evidence that President Trump was or is in collusion with Russia.)

Hopefully, once The House Intelligence Committee starts bringing witnesses in this week for closed testimonies, it will shed more light on that whole debacle and we can eventually just lay that conspiracy theory to rest. (Maybe then, Rachel Maddow will finally start reporting some REAL news,… one can only hope.)

But really, can we at least give this sitting president a full 100 days before we start grading? Or doesn’t it matter, because the grade is the same no matter what he has done?

Trump’s First 100 Days of the Presidency was doomed to get a negative grade by the MSM (mainstream media), regardless. They all just ignore anything good that he’s done or spin and twist the good things into negative speculations, even blatant lies that result in fake news and fear mongering the American public. I hear this a lot, that “Trump will start WWIII” even though these tensions were here far before Trump even started his campaign.

President Trump is being criticized for not having any of his major permanent legislation passed that he promised over the campaign, like Health reform, and Tax reform. Which is being resisted by democrats and even some republicans. Not only that, these are complicated legislation that historically have taken a lot longer than 100 days to pass by other administrations.

He’s being criticized for not being able to implement his Travel Pause Executive Order, because it was blocked by the 9th Circuit Court, as well as his Sanctuary Cities Executive Order. The blocks are unconstitutional and the executive orders are clearly well in the power of the President of the United States to hold, but that’s a blog for another day. (Actually I have blogged about the Travel Pause, twice.)

I find this so ironic that President Trump is being criticized for not being able to exercise his power as the leader of the country, because he’s been compared to Hitler, so many times that it’s completely ridiculous.

So what is it? Is he the most horrible evil dictator to ever take a breath and set foot on the earth? Or is he a weak inferior man who can’t even enforce a simple law that has been on the books for decades?

Neither.

He’s just a man. A man who is trying to serve his country the best way he can. Which it’s now taking a lot longer to do the things he’s been planning, that he has promised and needs to do. It’s a lot harder than he thought it would be, because of the unprecedented push back that he’s getting from the obstructionist lefties and even some of the bull headed Republicans.

President Trump is also being labeled a flip-flopper, because he’s able to assess a situation, listen to all of the sides/opinions, weigh the pros and cons, then do the necessary steps to work things out in our country’s favor.

For example, we now have probably the best relationship with China that we’ve had in decades, maybe even ever, because our leader took the time to talk things out with their leader and join forces against a common enemy. If you followed Trump on the campaign trail this was a big surprise. Now we are using China as an ally in a very sticky situation against North Korea, because it’s in both our countries best interest. We are also making better trade deals with them. Our products will have a better shot at being sold in China, without being double taxed, because our President is negotiating better deals.

This video makes me giggle. President Trump says China, over and over again.

President Trump has changed his mind on many other things, however now he has so much more information than he did when on the campaign trail. He has national security clearance that provides a completely different perspective for him. As well as countless advisors and people he trusts to mull over current situations, outcomes and possible solutions. If he’s able to take the new information, make an informed decision to change his mind on an issue, then I trust his judgement. He knows much more than you or I know about any national security situation, and if he’s changing his mind about certain issues, he must have good reasons.

Democrats and liberals should be ecstatic about this. HE’S ABLE TO CHANGE HIS MIND! That means he’s a REASONABLE HUMAN BEING!

Oh, but then that would mean admitting to being wrong about him.

We can’t have any of that, now can we?

If you only have the time to watch your local nightly alphabet news, or read the news on social media, you probably have a very negative and frustrated view of the Trump Administration’s first 100 days. You probably think money has been spent willy-nilly, no actual work has been done, important regulations have been repealed and no one in the country even likes President Trump. That’s exactly what the radical progressives want you to think.

The progressive leftists, or I call them regressives, want President Trump to fail. They do not care about the fact that if the Trump Administration fails that means the rest of us go down with the ship. Their only objective is to prove that they were right about him all along. They do not care that by being right, that would mean you and I, the American people would be the ones to really lose and suffer.

President Trump has been doing everything that he can to get his agenda done, and fulfilling the promises that he made on the campaign trail; with little help from congress, and no help from the mainstream media or Liberal District Court Judges. There has been so many distractions that have completely sucked all the life and attention away from anything positive that has been happening. Much of this was by design from ‘the resistance’. I guess, we can blame a little, on Twitter rants, but a rant is usually provoked. If you are constantly under fire, you may deserve a pass for some of your negative reactions. Just saying.

(But I’m not really a big fan of the Twitter rants either.)

According to Fox News, the official tally as, Friday April 28, 2017 at day 99, President Trump made 55 promises of actions he would take in his first 100 days: 18 are completed, 11 in progress, and 26 have so far failed. However, I wouldn’t completely count the allegedly failed ones out. He’s had so much resistance from Senate/House Democrats and even some Senate/House Republicans. That resistance is to purposely sabotage him in the eyes of the American people.

Some of these promises that have allegedly failed may have just been reconsidered and renegotiated. This should thrill Democrats! This means President Trump flipped his stance to their side. But have you heard how any of the Democrats are thrilled?….. Me either.

I see a President that is TRYING to keep all of his promises, even if they aren’t happening as fast as he’d hoped and that speaks volumes to me. Even if I don’t always agree with his agenda.

100 Days Of Trump – Grading Pres Trump Democrat Weigh In

WHAT HAS PRESIDENT TRUMP ACCOMPLISHED SO FAR?

Here is the “short list” for quick reference:

 

  • Illegal border crossings are down more than they have been in 17 years

 

The Promises Trump Would Like to Have Already Kept, But Will Soon Enough

These are the main promises that WILL be kept, but are in progress or in line for the next 100 days:

  • Tax Reform– one of the largest tax cuts for businesses and individuals, including the middle class in American history (legislation this complex is not usually historically passed in only 100 Days)
  • Health Care Reform– (also not usually historically passed in only first 100 days)

More In Depth List of Trump Administration Accomplishments:

(With reference links. Some things you may not agree with, however there are many good things, that should have bipartisan support. There has been many campaign promises kept. You need to hear this point of view, because you’ve been fed way too much negativity since November 9, 2016.)

  • Supreme Court Nomination: Justice Neil Gorsuch confirmed, an Originalist and perfect replacement for the late great Justice Antonin Scalia – This assures that our constitution is upheld without distortion of radical liberal progressivism. (The last time there was a Supreme Court Justice confirmed within a President’s first 100 days was over 130 years ago) Campaign Promise √

Justice Gorsuch had unanimous bipartisan support when he was approved by the senate to the Court of Appeals just a decade ago. All of the resisting you saw from democrats just proves my point that they only want to see President Trump fail. The only reason I can think of as to why, is that they want to be right about him. There are still many senate democrats currently serving that were part of that unanimous vote, including Chuck Schumer. (Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden were also part of that vote in favor of Judge Gorsuch)

Specific executive orders include:
    • Minimizing the Economic Burden of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Pending Repeal – (VERY FIRST DAY) {Although he couldn’t get health care reform done on his first day, he set his agenda, saved us some money and showed us that this is one of his biggest priorities.} “It is the policy of my Administration to seek the prompt repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148), as amended (the ‘Act’).  In the meantime, pending such repeal, it is imperative for the executive branch to ensure that the law is being efficiently implemented, take all actions consistent with law to minimize the unwarranted economic and regulatory burdens of the Act, and prepare to afford the States more flexibility and control to create a more free and open healthcare market.”
      Campaign Promise √
    • Budgetary Impact Analysis for Executive Order Entitled “Revocation of Federal Contracting Executive Orders” -The benefits of this executive order include the removal of duplicative and unnecessary procedures for Federal contract procurement and a return to due process protections for Federal contractors, resulting in reduced costs for taxpayers.

Campaign Promise √
  • Jobs, Economic Growth & Trade

The elimination of wasteful regulations that only cost the taxpayers extra money and stunt the growth of small, medium and large businesses.
      Campaign Promise √
    • President Trump Announces Manufacturing Jobs Initiative – meetings with some of the world’s most successful and creative business leaders to share their experiences and gain their insights.

    • Under pressure from Trump, Canada may finally do the right thing for the Canadian consumer and the Canadian economy by removing the dairy lobby’s hold in Canada’s corridors of power, and forcing Canada’s politicians to put on their big-boy pants. Many are now noting the irony that Trump’s desire to make America great gives long-suffering Canadians hope for an end to the dairy quotas.
    • Held only 1 solo press conference, but held 8 with foreign leaders – Trump only gave one solo press conference in the first 100 days. The rest were joint press conferences with foreign leaders. (To me this says he not only wants America first, but he also wants the rest of the world to see us as welcoming and open to mutually prospering relationships with other countries around the world.)

    • Creating JobsUnemployment rate down  Campaign Promise √
    • Consumer Optimism is higher than 96%  Campaign Promise √
    • American energy:
      • Keystone, Dakota pipelines – Among his first moves as president, Trump signed a presidential memorandum that cleared the way for two major oil pipeline projects that had been blocked by the Obama administration to move forward. Trump promised American steel would be used in the construction — a claim the White House had to walk back in late March, explaining it would apply to future construction. (Which as I understand was because we had already bought the steel.) This created immediate construction jobs and also will be able to finish a pipeline that was already over half built.
        Campaign Promise √
      • Presidential Executive Order Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy
      • Signed an order that would end protracted environmental reviews, a promise he made on the campaign trail.  This eliminated emission rules, (not even implemented yet,) that would force the closing of hundreds of coal-fired power plants meant to be replaced by wind and solar power. But they are caught up in court battles that could run for months or years. Campaign Promise √
      • Putting Coal Country Back to Work Campaign Promise √
      • Energy Independence Policy Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth – Campaign Promise √
        • to promote clean and safe development of our Nation’s vast energy resources, while at the same time avoiding regulatory burdens that unnecessarily encumber energy production, constrain economic growth, and prevent job creation.  Moreover, the prudent development of these natural resources is essential to ensuring the Nation’s geopolitical security.
        • to ensure that the Nation’s electricity is affordable, reliable, safe, secure, and clean, and that it can be produced from coal, natural gas, nuclear material, flowing water, and other domestic sources, including renewable sources.
        • executive departments and agencies (agencies) immediately review existing regulations that potentially burden the development or use of domestically produced energy resources and appropriately suspend, revise, or rescind those that unduly burden the development of domestic energy resources beyond the degree necessary to protect the public interest or otherwise comply with the law.
        • Immediate Review of All Agency Actions that Potentially Burden the Safe, Efficient Development of Domestic Energy Resources. Campaign Promise √

    • The Conference Board Employment Trends Index™ (ETI) Increased in March Solid Job Growth Expected in the Coming Months
      The Conference Board Employment Trends Index™ (ETI) increased in March, after a sharp increase in February. The index now stands at 131.43, up from 131.09 (a downward revision) in February. The change represents a 4.3 percent gain in the ETI compared to a year ago.

President Trump has signed 13 Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolutions in his first 100 days, more than any other President. These resolutions nullified unnecessary regulations and block agencies from reissuing them.

Since CRA resolutions were introduced under President Clinton, they’ve been used only once, under President George W. Bush.

The Wall Street Journal editorial: “So far the Trump Administration is a welcome improvement, rolling back more regulations than any President in history.”

President Trump’s 100 Days of Accountability

“Our moral duty to the taxpayer requires us to make our Government leaner and more accountable.”

– President Donald J. Trump

A GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: For too long the Washington swamp worked to serve itself, but President Donald J. Trump is reforming the Government to serve the American people.

President Trump implemented tough ethical standards to ensure his Administration works for the American people and not itself.

President Trump introduced tough new lobbying standards for political appointees, including a five-year ban on lobbying and a lifetime ban on lobbying for foreign countries.

President Trump donated his first quarter salary to the National Park Service, following through on his promise to the American people.

President Trump is keeping his promise to the American people to reform the Government to better address their needs. President Trump:

Implemented a temporary Federal hiring freeze to prevent taxpayer dollars from financing unnecessary bureaucracy.

Directed his Administration to create a comprehensive plan to reorganize the executive branch.

Required executive branch agencies to eliminate two regulations for every one they issue.

Created the Office of American Innovation to streamline and improve Government for future generations.

President Trump’s budget blueprint takes a sober look at how to responsibly spend taxpayer dollars and seeks to streamline government.

President Trump proposed the largest cut to non-defense spending since the Reagan Administration.

President Trump fulfilled his promise to the American people by nominating and, after Senate confirmation, appointing Neil Gorsuch as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

ADDRESS THE NEEDS OF ALL AMERICANS: President Trump has taken action to help marginalized communities past administrations have neglected.

After years of scandal and failing healthcare, President Trump has taken action to expand access to care for America’s veterans.

For the first time, accurate and up-to-date wait times and quality-of-care information is easily available online.

Under President Trump, authorized appointments for veterans outside of VA facilities have increased by 42 percent.

The President signed an extension of the Veterans Choice Program, giving eligible veterans the option of seeking care from private physicians.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has expanded emergent mental health care access to an estimated 500,000 former service members with Other than Honorable (OTH) discharges.

President Trump created a commission and focused grants to tackle the opioid epidemic that has increasingly plagued our country.

President Trump took action to prioritize Historically Black Colleges and Universities, after these critical institutions were marginalized in the previous administration.

Under President Trump’s leadership, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has gone on a national listening tour, promoting accountability at HUD field offices to the citizens they serve.

Under President Trump and Secretary DeVos’s leadership, the Administration has rolled back harmful regulations to ensure America’s schools are helping students.

A FOREIGN POLICY THAT PROMOTED ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: President Trump’s America First foreign policy restores the voice of the American people in world affairs.

President Trump is holding the U.N. accountable by calling out false and defamatory anti-Israel bias and forcing it to confront threats to the world’s security. At the U.N., the United States is:

Removing a blatantly biased report against Israel.

Condemning Russia’s support for the Assad regime and continued failure to live up to its commitment to end the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

Challenging Iran’s launch of ballistic missiles.

President Trump is supporting our allies across the world, while making sure everyone is accountable to international obligations. The United States is:

Working with NATO members to boost their defense spending to meet their commitments.

Supported Montenegro joining the NATO alliance.

President Trump re-negotiated the F-35 fighter jet agreement, saving more than $700 million in taxpayer money while improving America’s national security.

A PROMISE TO HOLD THE GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE: President Trump promised that he would drain the Washington swamp and restore accountability to Government.

President Trump: “Our moral duty to the taxpayer requires us to make our Government leaner and more accountable.”

President Trump: “There is duplication and redundancy everywhere. Billions and billions of dollars are being wasted on activities that are not delivering results for hardworking American taxpayers.”

‘Optimism’ and ‘Fake News’: Ohio Town Hall Grades Trump’s First 100 Days

April 25, 2017 [Video]

Martha MacCallum moderated a town hall event at Stolle Machinery, a manufacturing plant in North Canton, Ohio on “The First 100 Days.”

Many of the attendees said they felt that Trump is thus far keeping his promise to look out for the working people of America and improve the economy.

An executive at the plant, Michael Raderchak, said Trump brought optimism to an area of the country that has seen a lot in the way of economic downturn. He praised Trump for moving manufacturing back to America and Ohio specifically. “For the past eight years, we didn’t see that,” he said.

Tamie Lindamood, an employee at Stolle, echoed Raderchak, saying she also is optimistic that Trump will help the economy in the area. Lindamood said she was laid off three times during the Obama administration and witnessed friends lose their homes. “It’s stifling to be from Ohio and see [Trump] come in with so much optimism,” she said.

Stolle employee Steve Schutt said he too was encouraged with the Trump administration’s actions on trade and the economy.

Another attendee said Trump well understands the “working man” and is realizing how to prioritize his national security issues with domestic policies:

Former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-Ohio) said Trump “talks better than he acts,” but added that he is pleased with some of what the president has accomplished.

A student at the University of Akron told MacCallum that he too is concerned with President Trump. Christian Howse said Trump’s foreign policy and acts of war show too many parallels to President Bush engaging America in the early days of the War on Terror.

Later, another man instead blamed the media for the negative talk about Trump, saying he did not trust the approval polls and that many press outlets are engaging in “fake news.”

Addressing Misconceptions About The Dakota Access Pipeline
DAPL Facts You Should Know

The Dakota Access pipeline is not built on Native American reservations.
99.98% of the pipeline is installed on privately owned property in North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois. The Dakota Access Pipeline does not enter the Standing Rock Sioux reservation at any point.

The Dakota Access pipeline is safe.

The area of the Dakota Access pipeline in question has held eight other pipelines for over 30 years.
Eight other pipelines currently run below Lake Oahe. In fact, existing pipelines have safely transported natural gas beneath Lake Oahe for more than 30 years.

The builders of the Dakota Access pipeline adhered to all federal, state, and local laws and regulations

Most of the protesters at the Dakota Access Pipeline are not Standing Rock Sioux.
The vast majority of the opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline – and the most vocal – comes not from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, but from several radical, well-funded groups that are opposed to all use of fossil fuel and who ignore the safety of the pipeline in order to further their membership and fundraising efforts.

55 tribes held over 389 meetings while the DAPL route was planned.

No Native American artifacts were disturbed during construction.

The source of water for the Standing Rock Sioux is not near the Dakota Access Pipeline
At no point does the Dakota Access Pipeline pass through the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, nor does it impact the Tribe’s water supply. The water inlet for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe will be 70 miles away by early 2017, when the tribe’s water intake moves to South Dakota.

Trump: ‘We’re Bringing Back the Draft’? – FALSE ACCORDING TO SNOPES

Author: wadingthruthecrap

~ Your friendly neighborhood superhero. ~ Openminded Christian Right Leaning Libertarian Woman - I would really just like to see us all compromise and live in harmony. The negativity is really taking a toll on me mentally and physically. We don't have to agree to get along. We don't have to agree, to respect each other and share ideals. I do all my own research in order to stay informed and to stay SANE! If I just let the news and hearsay govern me I'd be freaking out and living under my bed. The fear-mongering must stop!
