Saturday will be the 100th day of the Donald Trump Presidency. And while when talking about the first 100 days the MSM has been talking about the failure of the Obamacare repeal and replacement, and now the fact that the continuing resolution probably will not include funding for the border wall the President has accomplished a historic amount in his first 100  96 days. The administration issued a press release explaining how much they’ve gotten done domestically since January 20th, and the list is massive. To their list we’ve added some very major foreign policy accomplishments.

The “big picture” is

  1. President Trump has signed 13 Congressional Review Act (CRA’s) resolutions over the first 100 days, more than any other President ever.
  2. President Trump has signed 30 executive orders over the first 100 days, more than any other President ever.
  3. President Trump has signed 28 new laws over the first 100 days, more than any other President, except for Truman.
  4. President Trump has taken steps to reestablish the credibility of America in the world.

While we cheer the President’s hard work on working with Congress to pass new laws and CRA’s, particularly when they will get government out of our way, the amount of executive orders signed is concerning. There are mitigating factors to be remembered, of course. Most of the executive orders that President Trump has signed simply counteract previous orders signed by President Obama, which so it’s not as if the President is ignoring the separation of powers like his predecessors, he’s actually got  rid of Obama’s overreach. However doubtful, we should keep a close eye on the administration in an effort to ensure that President Trump doesn’t fall in love with using Executive Orders, and that he works with Congress to push his agenda.

Here’s the rest the list of President Trump’s historic accomplishments:

GETTING GOVERNMENT OUT OF THE WAY: President Donald J. Trump has done more to stop the Government from interfering in the lives of Americans in his first 100 days than any other President in history

  • Since CRA resolutions were introduced under President Clinton, they’ve been used only once, under President George W. Bush.
    • TheWall Street Journal editorial: “So far the Trump Administration is a welcome improvement, rolling back more regulations than any President in history.
    • President Trump has signed 13 Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolutions in his first 100 days, more than any other President. These resolutions nullified unnecessary regulations and block agencies from reissuing them.

TAKING EXECUTIVE ACTION: In office, President Trump has accomplished more in his first 100 days than any other President since Franklin Roosevelt

  • President Trump will have signed 30 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Obama signed 19 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President George W. Bush signed 11 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Clinton signed 13 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President George H.W. Bush signed 11 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Reagan signed 18 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Carter signed 16 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Nixon signed 15 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Johnson signed 26 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Kennedy signed 23 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Eisenhower signed 20 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Truman signed 25 executive orders during his first 100 days.
    • President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed 9 executive orders during his first 100 days.

A SLEW OF LEGISLATION SIGNED: Despite historic Democrat obstructionism, President Trump has worked with Congress to pass more legislation in his first 100 days than any President since Truman.

  • President Trump has worked with Congress to enact 28 laws during the first 100 days of his Administration.
    • President Obama enacted 11 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President George W. Bush enacted 7 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President Clinton enacted 24 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President George H.W. Bush enacted 18 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President Reagan enacted 9 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President Carter enacted 22 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President Nixon enacted 9 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President Johnson enacted 10 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President Kennedy enacted 26 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President Eisenhower enacted 22 laws during his first 100 days.
    • President Truman enacted 55 bills laws during his first 100 days.

And lets not forget that he also secured the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

On the foreign policy front he was just as successful. President Trump took bold steps to restore the United State’s position as leader of the free world.

When Syrian despot Assad used chemical weapons against his own innocent men, women and kids, he enforced the Obama redline that Obama never did. That act served to restore America’s credibility on the world stage that his predecessor threw away. And a week later he reenforced that message by dropping the Mother Of All Bombs (MOAB) on and ISIS tunnel network in Afghanistan.

His action against the  Assad regime was perfectly timed…at the very moment he was sharing some chocolate cake with the president of China.  The timing may have allowed Trump to accomplish something three previous presidents failed to do: get China to pressure North Korea on its nuclear program. Already China has refused coal shipments from North Korea.

And at the United Nations the Trump administration has put North Korea on notice, criticized Russia, and told the world body that the Jew-hating anti-Israel policies of Barak Obama were over.

President Trump and his administration should stand up and take a bow for its first 100 days, but make it quick there is plenty more on their agenda.
