5 things President Donald Trump accomplished in his first 100 days in office

Like many other men who held the office President Trump had an up and down first 100 day’s in office

The first 100 day’s of President Donald Trump’s is no different in many ways than the 44 men who held the office before him. Trump had some good day’s and some bad one’s to be sure. So, let’s take a look at the five biggest accomplishments that he had in his first 100 days in the White House.

  1. Let’s begin with getting the nomination and confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as a justice on the Supreme Court. He won universal praise from all the Republicans both in the House as well as the Senate for the man who will replace justice Antonin Scalia on the high court.

He did need an assist from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to get it done. But it is President Trumps biggest win in the first 100 days in office.

2. He stopped the United States from getting into The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), or the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), a trade agreement between Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam.

President Trump thought that it was a NAFTA type agreement that would be unfair to business’s here in the United States. It was another promise to his base and he kept it.

3. He started the process for the Keystone XL pipeline to get started. The president signed a memorandum to allow the operator, TransCanada to re-submit a permit application for the pipeline to cross from Western Canada to the United States and transport more than 800,000 barrels of oil a day. The State Department issued that permit March 24. So promise made and promise kept.

4. President Trump kept his promise to coal miners by Trump signing an executive order regarding energy policy in late March — it included repealing federal regulations that limit carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, barring new coal mines, and ending the Obama admiration’s climate directives.

5. He also kept his process of cutting back on federal agencies by using an executive order to do the carving. Two of the biggest losers were the Education Department and the Environmental Protection Agency, as his fiscal year 2018 budget request for both is 13 percent and 31 percent, respectively, below last year’s levels.

There were a number of executive orders that he signed that may or may not be note worthy in his second 100 day’s in office. However, for now these are the big five accomplishments he can be proud of going forward.
