His regime has also been marked by controversy over United States intervention in Syria, and widespread dismay at his choice of the conservative Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

Then, days after the election, Trump released a video detailing many more accomplishments he'd hoped to make by the time his first 100 days were up.

President Donald Trump tweeted Friday about what he said is the "ridiculous standard" of judging the first 100 days of a new presidency but said "a lot" has been done on his watch.

While Trump has already made good on some major campaign promises, including nominating and securing confirmation for Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and pulling the US out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, his presidency has mostly been marked by some high-profile failures.

Toward the end of his presidential campaign, Trump issued a "Contract With the American Voter" that, among other things, promised that he would introduce and "fight for" 10 specific pieces of legislation.

The president has been reportedly pressuring Republicans in Congress to pass some kind of health care plan by next week because he is anxious that the media will mock him for not having any major wins after the first 100 days of his presidency.

The plan contains ambitious items like "a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress", cancelling "all federal funding to sanctuary cities", tax reform, and fixing "America's water and environmental infrastructure". Trump is now pushing the House for a vote on a revived bill before he hits Day 100 - though House leaders have sounded skeptical about that.

Trump and his aides have repeatedly denied any collusion with Moscow, and the president himself has called the investigations a "witch hunt" akin to McCarthyism during the Cold War.

"There are those that say I've done more than anybody in 100 days", Trump said February 28 on Fox.
