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.[1] 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.[2] The mainstream media loved Barack Obama's first 100 days in office and overexaggerated his success in that time period.[3]

Despite the media's spin on his presidency,[4] President Donald Trump had a relatively successful first 100 days in office,[5][6][7] having signed the most pieces of legislation since Harry Truman and the most executive orders ever in that timeframe.[8]
