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.”
