Jake Tapper just gave a no holds barred assessment of President Donald Trump’s first 100 days, and it wasn’t pretty.
During a segment on his CNN show “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” Tapper delivered a brutal takedown of Trump’s short time in office.
“With historically low approval ratings and zero pieces of major legislation signed into law, President Trump has had a disappointing first 100 days,” Tapper said during the segment.
He added that “perhaps that’s the reason [Trump] recently tweeted about the ‘ridiculous’ standard of the first 100 days.”
“The only reason I bring up the 100 days conceit is because you know who was one of the biggest boosters of the 100-day standard?” Tapper continued before playing several clips of Trump’s campaign speeches where he touted all he’d do in the early days of his presidency.
“Now the president says it’s a ridiculous standard. He changed his tune on this marker — this very conceit that he promoted with his 100-day action plan. Which is not really a surprise, because President Trump often heralds his flexibility,” Tapper said.
Tapper did concede that the president had managed to accomplish a few things during his first 100 days, including the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and the travel bans, which were subsequently overruled by federal judges.
