Dems say no shutdown if Trump relents on wall

Dems say no shutdown if Trump relents on wall

The president in question is not Donald Trump.

When executive orders not included in the American Presidency Project are included, FDR's total actually dwarfs Trump. He claimed that much of the plan's foundation has been placed, but noted, "Things came up".

Trump weighed in on his proposed border wall Sunday on Twitter, saying "Eventually, but at a later date so we can get started early, Mexico will be paying, in some form, for the badly needed border wall".

If that is the case, it "is not tax reform". With the push of a red button placed on the Resolute Desk that presidents have used for decades, a White House butler soon arrived with a Coke for the president. On Friday he is set to address the National Rifle Assn.

Trump has accomplished something more significant in his first 100 days than any president in recent memory has done: the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

"Nobody knew that health care could be so complicated", Trump said during his efforts to see Obamacare - his Democratic predecessor's signature domestic policy achievement - repealed and replaced.

He has signed a spate of executive orders - 25 are listed on the White House website - numerically surpassing most modern presidents, depending on how they are counted.

For the moment, Trump seems to have clamped down on the infighting and rivalries among his top White House staffers that have spilled into the press and created a sense of paranoia in the West Wing.

Among those who voted for Hillary Clinton, only 85% said they would vote for her again. What are his administration's biggest failures? On Apr. 23, a poll conducted by the Washington Post and ABC News showed Trump has a mere 42 percent approval rating, which the newspaper pointed out was "the lowest recorded at this stage of a presidency dating to Dwight Eisenhower".

Those things alone make Trump's first 100 days a success. "In our view, we're here for eight years".

Spicer said he is "very confident" Congress would pass a spending bill to avoid a government shutdown this week but is ultimately uncertain what the outcome will be.

With a flurry of action on health care, taxes and the border wall to show just how much he has done in the first 100 days - amplified by a White House program of first-100-days briefings, first-100-days receptions, a first-100-days website and a first-100-days rally.

With President Trump's 100th day in office fast approaching - he'll reach the milestone on Saturday, April 29 - the White House distributed a press release on Tuesday about "President Trump's 100 Days of Historic Accomplishments".

"Somebody put out the concept of a 100-day plan".

"North Korea is a big, world problem and it's a problem we have to finally solve", Trump said. He also hopes to use a $1 trillion catchall spending bill to salvage victories on his promised border wall, a multibillion-dollar down payment on a Pentagon buildup, and perhaps a crackdown on cities that refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement by federal authorities.

"We feel very proud of what we've been able to accomplish", he said.

Ronald Reagan, Brands notes, "did not say 'I'm going to do this on Day One", even if he made a lot of promises.
