Trump Declares His First 100 Days ‘Just About The Most Successful’ In History

Regardless of how critics are saying he stacks up, President Donald Trump seems pleased as punch about his progress in office so far. On Friday he declared his first 100 days in office “just about the most successful” in history.

In his weekly address to the nation, Trump said that his first few months have brought about “profound change.”

“I truly believe that the first 100 days of my Administration has been just about the most successful in our country’s history,” Trump said. “In just fourteen weeks, my administration has brought profound change to Washington.”

Trump cited “fantastic profits” from US businesses and increased jobs as proof that he has been successful.

“Our companies are doing better –- they just announced fantastic profits -– all because of what’s happened in this rather short period of time,” Trump said. “And that’s just the beginning. We’re putting in a massive tax cut for the middle class and for business. It’s going to have an enormous effect.”

The President said that is biggest accomplishment, though, is something that cannot be measured.

“The greatest change of all is the renewal of the American spirit,” he said. “As long as we have faith in each other, and trust in God, then the sun will always shine on our very Glorious Republic.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
