Revisiting Trump’s 100-day plan and his pledge to the American voter. Has he kept his promises?

President Donald Trump promised the American voters a “100-day action plan, which he stated would “Make America Great Again.”
During the final stretch of Trump’s campaign, a 100-day plan was introduced by then-candidate Donald Trump. The vow to the American voter, highlighted policies that Trump proposed and pursued through both legislative and executive actions. Taking a walk back to the campaign trail, echoes of Trump, stating that he would “Make America Great Again,” would become his proverbial platform of hope, upon which he built his promises. Standing before a large crowd in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on October 22, 2016, Trump told the crowd that he was making a pledge to them. The 100-day plan was later criticized by Trump after winning the election and fulfilling his role as President. In an interview with the Associated Press, Trump downplayed the 100-day benchmark by stating that his “Contract with the American Voter” wasn’t his idea.
Less than a week before his 100-day milestone, President Trump dismissed the significance of the action plan. His contention was that the plan was a ridiculous standard. Perhaps his objective in minimizing his own action plan, was to reduce the scrutiny and backlash because of the promises that he and his administration could not fully deliver. Trump stated in his interview with the Associated Press, “Somebody that he wasn’t aware of, put out the concept of a 100-day plan,” despite then-candidate Trump initially proposing the 100-day action plan. He further stated that the plan was not very meaningful, but rather, an artificial barrier.
On the flip side of the coin, Trump touted what he viewed as major legislative goals such as repealing the Affordable Care Act, in conjunction with other executive actions that he has flip-flopped, although he considers his approach flexible. Major legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act did not pass because the GOP failed to garner enough votes. To secure 216 votes, House Speaker Paul Ryan could only lose 21 members of the Republican Party voting— to Ryan’s dismay, 24 Republicans opposed the bill. To add insult to injury, President Trump failed to broker a deal with staunch conservatives, specifically the “Freedom Caucus” who vowed to oppose legislation. Trump also sought to downplay his call to repeal Obamacare, even though he promised his base that he would have repealed the law by the 100-day mark.
Trump stated in the 100-day plan that he would label China as a currency manipulator. His departure from the campaign rhetoric, points to how he has softened his approach on China. Citing President’s Xi’s support of placing pressure on North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, in a campaign rally, which he attended in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, after opting out of the White House Correspondents dinner, Trump stated that the use of the label used in the past was now counterproductive.
The latest Trump campaign ad that began running on May 1, 2017, declares the 100 day milestone for President Trump is a success. The following is a glimpse into whether President Donald J. Trump, honored his pledge to the American voter:
President Donald Trump promised to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, however, decided against labeling China a currency manipulator, despite his campaign trail rhetoric, which he referred to China as indeed a currency manipulator.
Looking ahead, the 100-day mark proposed by Trump, although not written in stone, it’s important to note how President Trump addresses promises that he has made to the American voter. It is also the American sentiment and tradition to measure how well a new presidential administration is performing. With any administration, setbacks and victories will exist. Trump has been greeted with a number of highs and lows, specifically when faced with the harsh reality, with respect to repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, which he adamantly refers to as “Obamacare.”
In an interview with Reuters on April 30, 2017, President Trump discussed his first 100 days in office, often reflecting upon his life before the White House. He was quoted as stating, “I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump told Reuters in an interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
Trump’s persona doesn’t seem to have drastically changed from day one of entering the office, to the 100-day milestone. He brings to the office a business man, wheeler-dealer executive style, accustomed to calling his own shots. He is now faced with abiding by the Constitution, working with Congress, and building relationships with both sides of the aisle, to do what he has promised, and what he can ultimately deliver.
