100 Days (or 38; who's counting?)
"I think I've done just about more than anybody in the first 4 weeks [in office]." -@POTUS pic.twitter.com/UgN7D8x3Cp— FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) February 28, 2017
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could "receive an extra day's pay," but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.Trump: An executive order that was overturned in several courts, rejected by an appellate court, and withdrawn by the White House.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who's counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a "presidential barrage of ideas and programs," historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, "unlike anything known to American history."
"There are those that say I've done more than anybody in the first 100 days," Trump, who was sworn in on Jan. 20, said in an interview on "Fox and Friends".
On February 28, 2017, showing Trump is innumerate, too.
(Trump's approval rating as of that interview: -12%).
