Incredible Journey

US President Donald Trump has described his first 100 days in office as an "incredible journey" during a speech at a rally in the state of Pennsylvania.

He used the same speech on Saturday to attack the news media and praise his own accomplishments.


"A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling themselves in a hotel ballroom in our nation's capital right now," he said.

"Media outlets like CNN and MSNBC are fake news ... and they would love to be with us here tonight, but they're trapped at the [White House Correspondents'] dinner which will be very very boring."


[He] said he was "thrilled to be more than 100 miles from Washington" to discuss the "great journey" of his first 100 days in office.


Trump said some of his achievements during this phase of his term were the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, the decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal and ending offshoring to "bring back American jobs".


"I'll be making a big decision on the Paris [climate change] accord over the next two weeks, and we'll see what happens," he said.


"It's a false standard, 100 days," Trump said while signing an executive order on Friday, "but I have to tell you, I don't think anybody has done what we've been able to do in 100 days, so we're very happy."


...but hey, do what you will anyway.
