Trump can't even get his own party to support his BS.
Now he's flip flopped on NAFTA...

He's faced levels of obstruction like no President in our lifetime has ever seen.
I really support the direction he's trying to head. It's his first 100 days but we also have to remember his full cabinet was obstructed for weeks if not months.
It's really not fair to judge the first 100 days when taking that into account.
I sleep better at night knowing he is the President compared to Obama though. At least I know he might make some mistakes but he won't be selling the country out to globalists and Muslims.
Empirical analysis has found that presidents enjoy a “honeymoon hundred” with Congress, during which time legislation that a president backs is more likely to pass.
If that’s true for Trump, he’s in trouble.
His effort to broker a deal on healthcare reform turned out to be as ineffectual as it was ostentatious.
His promise to pull off tax reform is equally in doubt.
The one spending bill he has managed to sign thus far, a $19.5bn reauthorization of Nasa, was both small potatoes and peripheral.
He has struck down at least 10 important Obama regulations, pertaining to clean streams, internet privacy and gun purchases by the mentally ill, but not everyone considers those accomplishments.
Many Americans – more than half, in most polls – believe that Trump is underperforming as president.
Strikes against him include his divisive and failed travel bans,
his blatant and insulting duplicity when it comes to voter fraud or crowd size,
his impulsive conduct of foreign policy,
his failure to divest from the Trump Organization,
his embrace of Wall Street and of foreign dictators,
his addiction to cable news,
and a lack of policy seriousness which leads him to confuse Iraq and Syria,
confuse which direction the navy is sailing in
and to say things like, “Nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated.”
Trump’s approval rating has dropped about four points in his first 100 days, from 45.5% approval to 41.7%, according to a FiveThirtyEight model.
Obama’s approval rating dropped three points in his first 100 days, from 68% approval to 65%, according to Gallup. That 65% is still quite high, on par with Reagan post-assassination attempt.
Bush’s (W)approval rating rose five points in his first 100 days, from 57% approval to 62%, according to Gallup.
Clinton’s approval rating dropped three points in his first 100 days, from 58% approval to 55%, according to Gallup.
Bush’s (HW)approval rating rose five points in his first 100 days, from 51% approval to 56%, according to Gallup.
The assassination attempt sent Reagan’s approval rating through the roof, briefly into the low 70s. Overall, Reagan’s approval rating rose 17 points in his first 100 days, from 51% approval to 68%, according to Gallup.

I have no regrets over my vote for him. He's done mostly what I expected him to do and I look forward to the direction he's steering the ship in.
Now, the obstructionists in DC and the litany of whining snivelers... there's a whole 'nother story.
