Trump: The next 100 days

He promised to win big but it hasn’t quite worked out like that. Despite the slow progress, a moderate Trump policy regime is not exactly a bad thing.

Executive summary

President Trump has had few big wins in his first 100 days, and quite a few misses. This says less about the new Administration than about the practical difficulties any US President faces, even with a notionally friendly Congress. It is also no reason to get too downbeat.


Although the first 100 days delivered more of a wish list than concrete actions, the next 100 days should see further concrete progress on a wide swathe of policy areas – though maybe not as much as Trump would want.
