We're nearly at 100 days. What is Trump's approval rating?

We're nearly at 100 days. What is Trump's approval rating?

But during his campaign he referenced the point himself and promised to fight for a sweeping package of legislation as part of his 100-day plan in his "Contract with the American Voter".

Just 26% of Americans said that Trump accomplished most or nearly all of the things he said he would do in his first 100 days, down from the 40% who expected that he would do so in a similar survey just after his inauguration. TRADE Trump's administration has adopted a "constructive" approach to NAFTA behind the scenes, despite headlines to the contrary, the head of the biggest US business lobby says in a speech in Mexico City. The poll showed only 85% of those who voted for Hillary Clinton would do so again, with most of those who would not saying they would either go with a third-party candidate or not vote at all. "You can't do it". "The only way to do it was by executive order", he said. This week, he will sign one on rural issues, another on veterans and several on energy.

"When you look at the totality of what we've accomplished ... it is unbelievable what he has been able to do", Spicer said Monday in defense of the president's record.

Swift Transportation Company (NYSE:SWFT) reported Sales of 4.03 Billion
New York State Teachers Retirement System increased its stake in shares of Swift Transportation by 3.1% in the fourth quarter. The analysts, on average, are forecasting a $26 price target, but the stock is already up 75.05% from its recent lows.

Trump "is going on an executive order frenzy in the final week of his first 100 days", Axios reported. This is a problem for Republicans because it means they would need Democratic support in the Senate to pass a tax overhaul. Congressional approval came later.

"This president has found that legislating is hard work", said Mark Rozell, dean of George Mason University's Schar School of Policy and Government. But why have they grown so fixated with executive orders in the first place? "But oftentimes they are often symbolic and only have a marginal impact on policy".

McCain and Graham, who dined with Trump Monday, have long advocated for increasing the number of United States in troops in Afghanistan, claiming that troop withdrawals during the Obama administration led to a stalemate in the country. It was in Obama's interest to play up the importance of his unilateral actions, and also in the interest of his Republican opponents to denounce these orders in overwrought terms, as oppressive and even unconstitutional.

The Pier 1 Imports' (PIR) Hold Rating Reaffirmed at Jefferies Group LLC
It conducts business as one operating segment and operates stores in the United States and Canada under the name Pier 1 Imports. Oppenheimer Holdings Inc. reaffirmed a market perform rating on shares of Pier 1 Imports in a report on Monday, December 19th.

In his AP interview, however, Trump boasts that Americans are paying attention to him, while railing against "fake news" and praising Fox News. In early April, the USA and China established a "100-day plan" to revisit the countries' trade relationship and begin untangling issues that have plagued the two nations for decades and resulted in a trade deficit which stood at $347 billion at the end of 2016 that the president has roundly criticized. Aides hailed one of the executive orders he signed on the topic as "historic".

President Donald Trump plans to propose massive tax cuts for businesses big and small as part of an overhaul that he says will provide the biggest tax cuts in USA history. And then there is "an interagency task force to examine the concerns of rural America and suggest legislative and regulatory changes to address them". On Thursday, he's expected to sign an order to create whistleblower protections in the Office of Veteran Affairs while making it easier to discipline or terminate employees who fail to carry out their duties to help veterans. Another will instruct the Interior Department to review national monument designations made over the past two decades.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said earlier this week that a tax overhaul plan would pay for itself through economic growth, but it's not clear how such a dramatic tax cut would be revenue-neutral.
