How do Donald Trump‘s first 100 days in the Oval Office compare to those of his predecessors?
Well, according to the president, he’s got them beat.
“I truly believe that the first 100 days of my Administration has been just about the most successful in our country’s history,” Trump says in his weekly address, released Friday, a day ahead of the milestone. “In just fourteen weeks, my administration has brought profound change to Washington.”
During the four-minute address, Trump discusses the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Justice Neal Gorsuch, his budget-trimming abilities and other topics that have played prominently since he assumed office.
“Our companies are doing better –- they just announced fantastic profits -– all because of what’s happened in this rather short period of time,” Trump says. “And that’s just the beginning. We’re putting in a massive tax cut for the middle class and for business. It’s going to have an enormous effect.”
Trump also boasts that he has created thousands of jobs.
