Before President Trump scoffed at the "ridiculous standard" of measuring a leader's success by his first 100 days in office, he signed and delivered a two-page contract outlining his "100-day action plan to Make America Great Again".

"No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!" he wrote.

Presidents are often judged by how productive their first 100 days in office are, and Trump's has thus far been somewhat of a mixed bag.

President Trump is complaining about being judged by the first 100 days of his presidency.

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Mr Trump seized on a poll by Rasmussen Reports - a poll whose methodology was questioned by others - which suggested his approval rating stood as high as 49 per cent.

But according to Spicer, Trump's comments shouldn't have been taken to mean the peninsula was the carrier group's first stop. Over the next week, President Trump, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, national security advisor H.R.

Since then, the first 100 days has been the test of a new president's productivity, though none have come close to matching FDR.

Trump and GOP lawmakers have now worked together to repeal more than a dozen such regulations issued in the waning days of the Obama administration. There is chatter, for example, about Republicans reviving the legislation in the House to repeal and replace Obamacare next week.

Two controversial executive orders barring citizens of certain Muslim-majority countries and refugees from entering the USA, for example, were blocked by federal judges amid concerns that the orders amounted to a ban on a religious group. But his first major legislative initiative, replacing the Affordable Care Act, failed in dramatic fashion last month, and a Trump-backed tax reform plan has not yet taken the floor in Congress.

Trump and his aides have repeatedly denied any collusion with Moscow, and the president himself has called the investigations a "witch hunt" akin to McCarthyism during the Cold War.
