Donald Trump on first 100 days: It's a different kind of presidency

  • U.S. President-elect Donald Trump and his campaign manager Kellyanne Conway greet supporters during his election night rally in Manhattan New York U.S

U.S. District Judge William H. Orrick III ruled Tuesday that Trump's January 25 order to cut some federal funding to so-called sanctuary cities and counties was unconstitutional.

One of Trump's biggest losses during his first 100 days has been failing to get enough Republican votes to approve his American Health Care Act, promoted as the GOP alternative to the Affordable Care Act, the landmark healthcare legislation under President Obama. Similarly, more today say the country became safer from terrorism during Trump's first 100 days than thought that had been the case under Obama, but the former President's overall rating on terrorism was higher than the rating given the current President.

The poll found that voter attitudes followed party lines, Husser said, with 87 percent of Democrats disapproving of Trump's performance and 88 percent of Republicans approving.

It's true that things could be worse (and they may well get worse), but if we judge Trump against the standard we would have used for any of his predecessors we have to grade his first three months as an nearly complete failure. There has been no political honeymoon: For this stage of an administration, Trump is the most unpopular president of modern times.

NFL Draft: Atlanta Falcons land passionate pass rusher Takkarist McKinley
I was gonna go to the NFL! "I made a promise to her", McKinley said. "This is who I'm doing it for", McKinley said. This draft was a study in teams rushing to grab QB's, as three different teams traded up to take signal-callers.

Homer then tells his wife to give Trump a chance as ICE agents take his father away because he doesn't know where he came from. "We are going to be doing trade deals that are going to be much better trade deals", Trump said.

Terrorism and the economy were the most important issues to Trump voters, followed closely by illegal immigration.

A new poll released Wednesday by Elon University found that support for President Donald Trump among North Carolina voters had fallen since November. Independents disapprove by 52 percent. Only 11 percent say they think Trump's use of Twitter is "mostly appropriate", versus 68 percent who say it's "mostly inappropriate". This puts him at the bottom of the list of 12 presidents (himself included).

70 percent said the country is headed in the right direction, compared to 22 percent who say the country is on the wrong track.
