Donald Trump is coming up on his 100th day as the country's chief executive, and he is expressing frustration that many are judging what typically is a "honeymoon period" for presidents in less-favorable way than he is.
"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.
Mr Trump's first 100 days will fall on April 29.
As Trump lobbies for some credit and his senior staff prepares for a week-long 100 days public relations blitz, congressional Democrats are gearing up to thrash the 45th president's performance.
His attempt to find a replacement for Obamacare failed to secure enough support among Republicans on Capitol Hill.
Trump also tweeted about the Times' mistake on Thursday morning, minutes before he was slated to receive his daily intelligence briefing. Time for new POWERFUL leadership.
While Trump has a lot of work to do to meet his own 100 day goals, as CNBC reports, he's continued to publicize the milestone and raise expectations. Those included bills to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, dramatically cut taxes, spur US$1 trillion in infrastructure investments and significantly expand school choice.
But, as Politico reported, Trump did pull the United States out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, as promised. In addition, he has signed multiple executive orders meant to roll back policies of the Obama administration.
The first 100 days of a first-term president is often used to measure success and set a roadmap for future policy issues.
Trump might be downplaying the importance of his first 100 days in office now, but voters don't seem completely willing to be patient with the new president, or forgiving of what he has and hasn't gotten done so far.
