Trump calls 100-day mark 'ridiculous standard.' He didn't always feel that way

As he neared 100 days in office, President Trump called the benchmark "ridiculous" and suggested the media would portray him unkindly no matter how much he accomplished.

The abbreviation "S.C." appears to refer to Trump's Supreme Court pick, Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, whose confirmation delivered a much-needed political victory to the president.

Less victorious were Trump's bids to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, block travelers from several Muslim-majority countries and enact tax reform by a self-imposed August deadline.

It appears that Trump didn't always find the 100-day mark unrealistic. Toward the end of his presidential campaign, he released a document titled, "Donald Trump's Contract with the American Voter," which touted a "100-day action plan to Make America Great Again."

The Washington Post has been tracking each of the 60 promises listed in the document, and has found that, 92 days into Trump's presidency, just five had been kept (11 had been launched, and 36 were not yet rated).
