CREW's report also looks at the track records of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Scott Pruitt, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Health and Human Services (HHS) head Tom Price, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, senior White House staff, and the president's children.

Trump's rally Saturday night in Harrisburg offered a familiar recapitulation of what he and aides have argued for days are administration successes, including the successful confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, his Cabinet choices and the approval of construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

"We are not going to let other countries take advantage of us anymore", he said in Harrisburg at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center. "From now on it's going to be America first".

Trump visited the AMES Companies in Pennsylvania's Cumberland County, a shovel manufacturer since 1774.

The aim is to determine whether America is being treated fairly by its trading partners and the 164-nation World Trade Organization. President Trump is returning from addressing the National Rifle Association convention in Atlanta. To cheers, he accused the news media of "fake news" and said if their job was to be honest and tell the truth, then they deserved "a big, fat failing grade".

In his weekly address, the president went on to say that "in just 14 weeks, my administration has brought profound change to Washington, the most fundamental change can be found in the relationship between the people and their government".

US and Philippine officials said Trump's calls and invitations to several Asian allies including Duterte were aimed at discussing the crisis over North Korea's nuclear threats.

Comedian Pete Dominick, another CNN panelist, agreed: "Tonight we learned that he has less facial expressions than a cadaver.It was really, really gratifying for a lot of people to see him humiliated".

Under a relentless spotlight since stunning the world in November with a victory over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, the 45th United States president has seen his bid to tear up his predecessor's landmark health-care reforms founder in Congress, where many of his other legislative priorities have also run up against cold political gamesmanship.

"In his first 100 days, President Donald J. Trump has taken bold actions to restore prosperity, keep Americans safe and secure, and hold the government accountable".

Abella said in a statement that "the discussion that transpired between the presidents was warm, with President Trump expressing his understanding and appreciation of the challenges facing the Philippine president, especially on the matter of unsafe drugs". It apparently falls short of Reagan's in 1981, and tax experts are skeptical that the plan would pay for itself, as Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has claimed.

But taking a swipe at Trump for his invitation to Duterte, Democratic U.S. Senator Chris Murphy tweeted: "We are watching in real time as the American human rights bully pulpit disintegrates into ash".

"The greatest change of all is the renewal of the American spirit", he said.

But US courts twice blocked his most high-profile order, a temporary ban on citizens from several Muslim-majority countries entering the United States.

At that point, the late journalist Daniel Schorr summed up Bush this way on NPR's Talk of the Nation: "If you say, what has he done in 100 days, not much".

Earlier this week, Trump announced his intention to work to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.
