Trump calls 100-day assessment "ridiculous"

Full of energy and fresh off the campaign trail, a newly inaugurated president will generally try to implement as numerous policies that helped them get elected as possible.

President Donald Trump said "a lot" has been accomplished on his watch and that the 100-day benchmark is 'ridiculous'. His second attempt at a Muslim ban executive order was blocked by a federal court.

Most notably, legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare backed by the White House and GOP leadership on Capitol Hill failed to make its way through the Republican controlled House of Representatives, unable to find a balance between conservative members who thought it didn't go far enough and more moderate ones unable to stomach the bill's cuts.

Politico reported that this statement is "a notable shift from his campaign rhetoric", and TIME agreed that Trump's usual move is to plug his accomplishments and boost his achievements.

The 100 days measure is linked to President Franklin Roosevelt - he signed 15 major pieces of legislation early in his presidency - and, as CNN's Jake Tapper notes, it's when a president's power and influence with Congress is likely the greatest. So he hasn't totally reneged on reversing policies made during the Obama administration.

Then, again during his administration's transition into the White House.

In fairness to Trump, 100 days is a very difficult benchmark It was hard when early 20th century Presidents tried to meet it, and its even more difficult in the acrimonious partisan atmosphere that now pervades Washington.

It would be the flawless poetic justice for the "dog ate my homework" president: asking for a one-week extension on the very day the term paper is due. The deadline for that is April 29. Now, he says a tax plan is coming next week.

Pollsters noted Trump's predecessor Barack Obama held a 63 percent average approval rating during his first three months in office, while George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan had an average rating of 60 percent.

And around 6 a.m., Trump retweeted a "Fox & Friends" tweet that featured a story detailing an apology tweeted by the editor of the New York Times after the newspaper posted online a photo of the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots at the White House this week that it initially implied showed many players and staff skipped the event in protest of the bombastic president.

Trump also tweeted about the Times' mistake on Thursday morning, minutes before he was slated to receive his daily intelligence briefing.
