100 days in, Donald Trump says he has brought about 'profound change'

The US President Donald Trump has celebrated his first hundred days among his staunchest supporters - starting with a familiar theme: bashing the news media.

Declaring his "only allegiance is to you, our wonderful citizens", Trump signed executive orders toughening the nation's posture on trade deals.

"I think it's one of the worst 100 days I've ever recalled for a president", says Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer.

"Americans seem to really like guacamole", Noland said, "but the idea that we are going to have giant greenhouses and lots of avocados and limes - the fact that we are purchasing them from the Mexicans rather than producing them at home tells you producing them at home is more expensive".

Mr Trump's 100th day events were set in a politically important state that he won with 48% of the vote.

"I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington's swamp, spending my evening with all of you with a much, much larger crowd and much, much better people".

The most impactful moments of Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner came from Bee and her team's very active imaginations that dreamed up alternative worlds where Bee roasted Presidents Woodrow Wilson, Ronald Regan, and Bill Clinton; and delivered an impassioned monologue in present day where "Hillary Clinton [was] sworn in as president".

There is no guarantee that if Trump were to seal the border with Mexico that it would "save" the United States any money, said Marcus Noland, a trade economist at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

Later on Saturday, he's going to visit Pennsylvania, one of the states that propelled his unlikely election victory.

President Donald Trump signed two executive orders on trade before his rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday night. According to the White House, Trump has signed 30 Executive Orders in his first 100 days, 11 more than former President Obama and 19 more than former President George W. Bush.

The goal, the White House said, is to determine whether America is being treated fairly by its trading partners and the 164-nation World Trade Organization. But speaking to supporters Saturday night in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the president derided the news media and accused them of "fake news".

An IT sales representative, Yavener knew Trump was his candidate when he looked into the camera at the first Republican presidential debate and said, "America is not winning anymore".

"Whatever the climate, whether the media is revered or reviled, we should and must persist and I believe we will".

Indeed, the White House has spent much of the past week before Saturday holding events, putting out press releases and otherwise seeking headlines meant to highlight what it views as the new administration's successes in the last 100 days.

Trump was indeed in Pennsylvania, having scheduled a rally in Harrisburg to mark his 100th day in office.

It was not realistic to expect Trump to fulfill all his promises in his first 100 days, Yavener said, adding that those who say Trump has failed are missing the bigger picture. It apparently falls short of Reagan's in 1981, and tax experts are skeptical that the plan would pay for itself, as Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has claimed.

As Commander in Chief, my father took decisive action against Syrian President Bashar al Assad after he turned chemical weapons against his own people. Polls show that Americans feel slightly better about his job performance on that subject than his job performance overall. "Promises kept." Trump said major accomplishments in his first 100 days included seeing a Supreme Court nominee confirmed by the Senate, pulling the USA out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade accord, a rising stock market and the easing of regulations on exploration for energy. It was well-received in the room - because it was amusing! - but will just add fuel to the fire Trump has been stoking nearly since the day he entered the presidential race.
