Trade order, campaign rally on Trump's 100th day

President Donald Trump will spend his 100th day in office talking tough on trade in one of the states that delivered his unlikely win.

At one point a protester, reportedly waving a Russian flag, was taken out of the stadium by police. "It put the countries of this world on notice that the sell-out of the American worker was over".

Jeff Mason, the WHCA president, told the Associated Press that this year's event would have been different even if Trump had attended, "based on the tension that has existed in the relationship and some of the things he has said about the press".

Washington naively assumed China was "merely a more exotic version of Canada", Lighthizer once testified, and would learn to live within WTO rules and open its market to American exports; instead, China has limited foreign competition, manipulated its currency and subsidized its exporters. The "Peoples Climate March" even managed to attract a number of celebrities to join including Leonardo DiCaprio, who carried a sign, saying "Climate change is real". Trump said of Schumer: "He has no leadership ability".

Most recognize his accomplishment in naming Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and almost two-thirds think the Keystone XL pipeline, which Trump pushed forward with an executive order, is likely to be built.

He also listed his approval of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, killing a pending Asian trade pact, and enhanced security measures that have led to a sharp decline in illegal border crossings at the southern border.

But the president began the rally on a sour note, pointing out that he was not attending that night's White House Correspondents' Association dinner and issuing a scathing attack on the news media.

"Republicans have not accomplished very much in the first 100 days", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY.

"We are not failing news organisations".

In an hour-longspeech attacking the media and predecessor Barack Obama, boasting about his support for USA industry and the military, vaunting his foreign policy positions including on confronting North Korea, reading a poem, and repeating his signature "Make America Great Again" motto, Trump earned cheer after cheer from the crowd in Pennsylvania. The White House is straining to keep morale up, and it is an insult to the majority of the American people that this president would believe that he has done anything that is worth celebrating. "Mr President, the media is not "fake new"," Woodward said.

In today's inauguration ceremony Donald J. Trump becomes the 45th president of the United States. Let's take that off the table as we proceed. Hopefully, we'll see more of the willingness to learn that has been the most positive aspect of his early months in the hardest job in the world.

Democrats gleefully described his opening century mark on Friday as a slow-motion train wreck, a period of dramatically diminished stability, legislative failures and broken campaign pledges. Trump's ban on visitors from some Muslim nations was blocked in court.

In an excerpt of an interview with "Face the Nation" of CBS, set to air on Sunday and Monday and conducted during the trip to Pennsylvania, Trump said he would "not be happy" if North Korea conducted a nuclear test. He says: "Calling from here and meeting here, and having meetings on that contract, I think, gives you additional power, if you want to know the truth".

Complicating Trump's presidency is a potential scandal that has been hovering over the administration like a drone: Russian Federation.

Asked while he was in Pennsylvania what his message was for the climate protesters back in D.C., the president responded, "Enjoy the day".
