New Trump ad highlights '100 days' achievements

His most commonly tweeted hashtag is #MAGA, the abbreviation for his campaign slogan "Make American Great Again".

- The president faces many decisions that will impact the nation, but one in particular could reveal more about one of America's most tragic events. His Treasury secretary and chief economic adviser are multi-billionaire Wall Streeters who have hatched a tax-reform proposal that would gift a whopping windfall to the wealthiest, including Trump himself. The ad says "you wouldn't know it from watching the news".

So essentially, Trump's tweeting all about "news", "media", and "fake news".

Meanwhile, tech stocks that were left out of the early Trump rally have surged recently as investors shift out of low-valuation stocks favored immediately after the election and back into high-growth stocks like Alphabet and Facebook that delivered much of the market's momentum in recent years. We'll recap the major claims here.

Don't hold your breath waiting for alleged Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl to be dropped out of an airplane without a parachute, as Trump said he'd do at many of his campaign rallies.

Trump cited "fantastic profits" from USA businesses and increased jobs as proof that he has been successful. What we have today is a Republican president ready to sign legislation that solves problems, unlike the previous president who signed legislation that either caused the problems or made them worse. In more recent years, various other presidents, most recently Barack Obama, have accomplished more in their first 100 days than Trump has, historians say.

- China a currency manipulator: Trump had vowed the United States could impose tariffs on Chinese goods. But the traction on his medium of choice has slipped a bit as his tone and button-pushing tendencies have cooled. It's been a whirlwind few months, including cabinet picks, diplomatic trips, historic bombings and the confirmation of a new Supreme Court justice.

No president has had a first 100 days like Donald Trump.

Roosevelt's first 100 days of unprecedented productivity in 1933 has haunted all 13 ensuing presidents. Why? Richard Nixon is the only other president since 1900 to have entered office knowing they would have a seat to fill imminently.

Demonstrators in New York City staged a march under the banner "100 Days of Failure", while tens of thousands at the People's Climate March in Washington criticized his rollbacks of environmental protections and Obama administration climate policies.

"Fact: 500,000-plus jobs created".

Weekly Address by The White House on YouTube. "We're the number one importer in the whole world".

"The president is normally encased in a layer of aides and protected, and we know some remove", said Tom Rosenstiel, executive director of the American Press Institute.

The group is down by more than 13 percent since then, however, and even last week's executive order to investigate whether US steel companies need additional trade protections under the auspices of national security delivered only a short-lived rebound.

For the sake of comparison, overall job creation under Trump actually hasn't been turbo-charged yet. The charges soon become more specific, as Trump called out GOP Reps. By contrast, the average monthly gain for Obama's final full year - January 2016 to December 2016 - was 187,000.

Despite some backlash, mostly from reporters familiar with Trump's deep personal affection for seeing his name in print, he doubled down days later in his remarks at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference.
