His regime has also been marked by controversy over USA intervention in Syria, and widespread dismay at his choice of the conservative Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

Mr. Trump called the idea of the first 100 days "ridiculous", but then emphasized that he has accomplished "a lot" during this period so far.

President Trump took to Twitter on Friday morning to rip the "ridiculous standard" of the first 100 days in office, writing, "media will kill" despite his accomplishments.

President Donald Trump is complaining that a deadline he set for himself for various policy plans is unfair.

As Trump's first 100 days wind down, he's presumably countering the dozens of stories that will be written to analyze his progress.

But his ban on travel from Muslim-majority countries is caught in legal limbo and legislative attempts to repeal Obama's Affordable Care Act or initiate tax reform have floundered.
