“Historic Accomplishments” Mark President Trump’s First 100 Days

The White House is getting an early start at touting the accomplishments of the President in his first 100 days.

The administration recently issued a press release that explains just how much they’ve gotten done over the first 3 months of President Trump’s tenure, and the argument is full of evidence that the President has worked very hard for us over the last few months. The Trump team focused their attention on three key areas:

  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.

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, so it’s not as if the President is creating new laws from nothing, he’s actually getting rid of Obama’s overreach. However, conservatives 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 instead he work with Congress to push his agenda.

Here’s the rest of what the White House had to say about President Trump’s historic workload:

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.

  • The Wall Street Journal editorial: “So far the Trump Administration is a welcome improvement, rolling back more regulations than any President in history.”
