What has really been accomplished so far?

This coming Saturday marks exactly 100 days of Donald Trump taking the position of President. After the monumental and insane election, many are disappointed or very pleased with the results so far. What has trump done exactly? What does it mean? Is it good or bad? Well I guess that depends on your own opinions.

So here are some of things that have happened in the first 100 days of Trumps Presidency since the inauguration.

Previous to Trump’s win, many thought he would get nothing done but in fact he has actually gotten a lot done.


On just day four, Trump signed orders withdrawing the U.S. from the TPP trade deal, imposing a federal hiring freeze. He also reinstated the ban on federal funding for abortion services in other countries.

On day five, Trump signed an order reviving consideration of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, as well as additional actions aimed at expediting the permitting process and encouraging the use of U.S. steel.

Sorry Keystone Natives! Trump doesn’t care much about you guys unfortunately.



On day six, Trump signed orders dealing with immigration enforcement and border security. He called for constructing the U.S.-Mexico border wall, cutting funding to sanctuary cities, hiring thousands more border and immigration agents, toughening immigration enforcement, and reinstating federal-local immigration partnerships.

Who’s paying for that wall? Well, that is still unknown. However, so far it’s definitely not Mexico.

On day nine, Trump signed orders promising a five-year ban on officials from becoming lobbyists after they leave government,and a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.

After these intense first few days of a lot of change, things began to quiet down for a bit.

On day forty-six, Trump signed and revised an executive order which suspended the U.S. refugee program and entry for travelers from six mostly Muslim countries.

This was by far one of the most controversial acts signed by the Trump administration. This law caused a lot of uproar among Americans who felt like they were being impacted by this order and felt like it was not fair. However, many believed this would be a step toward a safer country.


On day sixty-one, Trump signed a bill on space exploration.

YAY ALIENS!! WHERE YOU GUYS AT?

On day sixty-eight, Trump signed an executive order on energy independence at EPA headquarters. This order unfortunately would scale back work done on researching climate change and trying to fix issues on pollution.

Who cares about the earth anyways!? Right?

On day seventy-seven, Trump launched airstrikes on Syria. This resulted in many casualties that many had mixed feelings about. Some thought he was right to do this in the act of trying to eliminate ISIS. However, others were horrified and disgusted in the idea of killing millions of innocent people to get rid of a terrorist organization.


On day eighty-three, Trump met with and held a press conference with, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announcing that he had changed his mind about labeling China a currency manipulator on day one. Many were upset by this as they were hoping he would do so and saw it as a promise broken.

On day eighty-four, Trump signed a bill that allows states to block Planned Parenthood funding.

Better start putting those condoms on boys! Some states will no longer allow women to get abortions which is anticipated during the Trump presidency.

With a few days left until the one hundred day mark, it has been anticipated that this week Trump will definitely be signing a lot more important executive orders that he has promised. Some of these orders include the future of Obamacare and the payments for a border wall which is making congress lose their shit. As congress cannot decide on what they want to do with these bills, this could lead to a potential government shutdown Friday. This wouldn’t be too big of a deal for the country, however, it will result in their being a bigger delay of getting decisions made.

And that's what you missed on the latest episode of the Trump Administration..
