Since Franklin Roosevelt, presidents have been evaluated at the end of a hundred days. Donald Trump drafted his own report card in a campaign speech last fall, saying what he would do in his first hundred days.
And here’s the surprising thing: he’s doing what he said.
• Appoint judges who would uphold the Constitution. Neil Gorsuch. Check.
• Construct a wall and limit illegal immigration. No wall yet, but plenty of restrictions.
• Reassess trade agreements—withdrew from the TPP, check.
• Repeal Obamacare—no check, but working on it.
• Impose term limits on Congress—no.
• Remove restrictions on energy—yes.
• Eliminate gun-free zones—not yet.
• For every new regulation, eliminate two old ones. Check, by executive order.
• Instruct the Joint Chiefs to develop plans to protect America. Check.
• Label China a currency manipulator—maybe, but doubtful.
After 100 days, he’s batting .500 or more, which is better than my teams are doing.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/319291929″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
