First 100 days
The first 100 days of the tenure of the President of the United States is considered a way to determine how much momentum the president has going in his direction.
Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first president to employ such a strategy when he took office in 1933, coining the term to refer to the first 100 days of the 73rd U.S. Congress. The mainstream media often gives higher ratings to liberal presidents on their first 100 days than to conservative presidents, even if the latter accomplish more. The mainstream media loved Barack Obama's first 100 days in office and overexaggerated his success in that time period.
Despite the media's spin on his presidency, President Donald Trump had a relatively successful first 100 days in office, having signed the most pieces of legislation since Harry Truman and the most executive orders ever in that timeframe.
