Trump’s 100 days: What we’ve learned

The Hill Tipsheet


By Jordan Fabian and Jonathan Easley
When President Trump took the oath of office three months ago, one question loomed above the others: How would the most unconventional presidential candidate in recent memory govern?  Here is what we have learned about Trump’s approach to the presidency as he nears the first 100 days of his administration on Saturday, April 29.
He’s willing to change his mind
Besides of his get-tough stances on trade, immigration and crime, Trump entered politics with very few deeply held political beliefs. And he’s not been afraid to change his views depending on his circumstances.  Earlier this month, Trump put on a dizzying display by flipping on four policies in one day: Fed chief Janet Yellen, the NATO alliance, China’s currency practices and the Export-Import Bank.  He backed off his promise to label China a currency manipulator during his first 100 days, decided to keep the Ex-Im bank after criticizing it during the campaign, and warmed up to Yellen.
“I said it was obsolete,” Trump said recently of NATO. “It’s no longer obsolete.”
Perhaps his biggest change was his decision to launch cruise missiles at Syria, a major change from campaign rhetoric that saw Trump decry the perils of American military intervention in the Middle East.  With the Syria attack, Trump seemed to be moved by images on television of dead children killed and wounded in a chemical weapons attack perpetrated by Syrian president Bashar Assad’s military.
He said that seeing “innocent people, including women, small children, and even beautiful little babies” had a “big impact” on his view, so much so that “my attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much.”   The rapid-fire changes have given some Trump supporters, while others call it a positive development.     “It’s a sign of maturity. He’s got his team around him now and is fully briefed on the consequences of his policy decisions and appears to be getting to the right place on almost everything,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce political analyst Scott Reed.
Winning is everything
“Loser” — It’s Trump’s insult of choice and one he’s lobbed at his opponents hundreds of times. It’s also a label no president wants, but Trump might fear it more than most.  Trump faces the very real prospect of finishing his first 100 days in office without any major legislative achievements to claim. And while that might not be a sign his presidency is doomed to failure, it’s a benchmark for success Trump himself set with an ambitious list of promises during his campaign.
Trump has followed through on several of his first-100-day promises, including filling Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court with another conservative judge.
But he has backed off others, while his attempt to repeal and replace ObamaCare foundered in the face of opposition from his own party. And the travel ban, Trump’s most consequential executive action, has been repeatedly blocked by courts.   That thin record could explain why Trump and his staff are pushing Congress to hold another vote on healthcare next week, right before his 100th day. But they’re unlikely to get that win next week — House GOP leaders have indicated they won’t hold a vote on a proposal that doesn’t have enough votes to pass.
In the meantime, Trump tries to tamp down expectations for his 100 days.  “No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!” he tweeted Friday.     THEHILL- -CLICK HERE TO READ ON>>>>>

Last time a head was bowed in the White House in 8 years was in SHAME! Times Are Changing

What an uplifting sight to see people actually praying again in the White House.

“If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  1 Chronicles 7:14

 

Not Seen in the White House in Eight Years!

President Trump, his two eldest sons, Vice President Pence and wife Karen, Reince Priebus, and Justice Scalia’s widow Maureen and son Fr. Paul Scalia, among others, praying with Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and his wife Marie Louise in the White House.

The time taken to publicly pray for the Senate confirmation and future career of man who may become one of America’s top decision-makers for decades to come is a momentous occasion for Christians who considered Trump’s Supreme Court pick to be a primary reason for voting for him.

As the Supreme Court, and lower circuit courts, have increasingly pulled America away from Biblical principles, it is refreshing to see a presidential administration’s focus turned back toward God in helping lead our country.
