Here's what Donald

Trump has done in his

first 100 days in office

Since FDR, a president’s first 100 days offer an important – if

arbitrary – measure for evaluating success. While it is unlikely

any executive will again match the productivity of Roosevelt,

most scholars of the presidency agree that this period still

matters for advancing an administration’s agenda.

It has been an unruly 100 days since President Donald Trump

took the oath of office. His administration has been plagued

with scandals, protests and a critical media with a renewed

sense of purpose.

as a schola r of the presidency and the press

As a scholar of the presidency and the press, I’ve found the

beginning of the Trump administration morbidly fascinating.

Despite his boasts, Trump’s legislative agenda appears to be

stalled. As we approach day 100, many will point critically to

the dearth of bills coming across Trump’s desk. However,

focusing solely on legislation overlooks a thriving aspect of the

Trump presidency: the use of unilateral powers like executive

orders, memoranda and proclamations.

Trump goes it alone

Trump hit the ground running with a flurry of unilateral

activity. This burst of direct actions may seem surprising in

light of Trump’s past statements. In 2012, he took to Twitter to

criticize President Obama for “constantly issuing executive

orders that are major power grabs of authority.” According to

the American Presidency Project, Trump has surpassed his

power-grabbing predecessor in unilateral actions, and in less

time.

Trump is clearly making a concerted effort to fulfill his

campaign promises. In areas where he can act alone, Trump has

made gestures – some symbolic, others more substantive –

toward 14 of the 18 pledges outlined in his Contract with the

American Voter. With a stroke of the pen, Trump attempted to

reduce the number of people working for the government,

“drain the swamp” and advance pipeline projects.
