Fewer than 10 days out from the 100-day mark of his presidency, Donald Trump on Friday morning blasted the “ridiculous standard of the first 100 days.”
No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!

President Trump was likely looking to get out ahead of news stories analyzing what he has accomplished during his first 100 days, a benchmark on which many presidents have been assessed.
Already, outlets, including TPM, are publishing pieces noting that Trump has yet to achieve some of the goals he laid out for himself. The Washington Post on Thursday published a piece laying the goals Trump set for himself in his first 100 days, like cutting taxes and renegotiating trade deals. The Post noted that the President has yet to achieve those goals.
