Trump Mocks 'Ridiculous Standard' of First 100 Days: 'Media Will Kill'

But unless Trump gets really, really busy between now and April 29, when he hits 100 days as president, it's looking like he won't exactly check off every promise he made in his "contract with the American voter".

President Trump began Friday by blasting critiques of the first 100 days of his presidency as a "ridiculous standard".

Donald Trump has reacted bullishly to criticism over his historically low approval ratings, saying the media will "kill" him no matter how much he achieves.

With the end of his first hundred days approaching, the tweet seems to be an attempt to get ahead of negative coverage over a very thin list of legislative accomplishments.

Trump notably did not mention his two executive orders banning some Muslims from entering the United States that have been blocked by federal judges, nor the health care overhaul measure he backed that was pulled before a House vote, nor his firing of his first national security adviser, nor federal and congressional investigations of his campaign associates' possible ties to Russian Federation.

Slate Political Correspondent Jamelle Bouie, National Review Editor Rich Lowry and The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin will be joined by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Eurasia Group's Ian Bremmer for "Unresolved: Trump's First 100 Days", an event by Intelligence Squared U.S., a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.

President's tenure has been a mixed bag so far. "And if we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by, and for the people", the contract said.

Trump regularly attacks the media, often referring to the New York Times as "failing", CNN as "fake news" and the entire industry as the "opposition party".
