Subject: : Trump gloats about 100 days, despite his stalled agenda

Ms. Kate Malloy
Editor, The Hill Times.
While U.S. President Donald Trump calls his 100 days in office as the �most successful in our country�s history,� top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi offered failing grades for Trump�s �starkly dismal� first 100 days.

�Budget: F, creating jobs: F, draining the swamp: F, healthcare: F-minus,� she told reporters.

Despite his bravado, Trump faced the sober realities of his office as he marked the 100th day on April 29 of a presidency marked by chaos and confusion with most of his pledges stalled. His bid to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama�s landmark health care bill has foundered in Congress, where many of his legislative priorities have been tripped up by cold political reality.

Funding for his promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, for example, needed to be stripped out of the federal funding bill in order to prevent a government shut down. All Democrats and many Republicans think that the wall would be a wasteful boondoggle which would not serve any purpose. His tax plan, hastily unveiled past week, has been savaged as a multi-billion-dollar giveaway to the wealthy that will send the national debt soaring. His most high-profile executive order banning temporarily immigration from several Muslim-majority countries has been blocked by U.S. district courts.

Complicating all this, Congress and the FBI are conducting independent investigations into alleged collusion between Russian officials and Trump�s campaign staffers during the election. The only positive feature of his 100 days in office is that he remains popular among his blue-collar base. But how long he can retain such popularity despite his unfulfilled pledges remains to be seen.
