According To Kellyanne Conway, Trump Has Kept Up With His Campaign Promises

Trump administration officials are firing back at critics who accuse the president of failing to score any victories in Congress or the courts during his first 100 days in office.

The Hill reported that White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway, a member of Trump’s inner circle of advisers, argued on Sunday that the president was justified in attending a rally in Pennsylvania rather than the White House Correspondents Dinner the previous day. She claimed that Trump gave a “barn burner” of a speech to his supporters.

“I was in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, with an overflow, energetic, enthusiastic crowd for this president and his message,” Conway said on “Fox & Friends Weekend.” She continued: “They just love him. And the signs were 'promises made, promises kept,’ and that’s the way they feel.” The aide pointed out that Pennsylvania voters helped Trump win the 2016 election by awarding him their 20 electoral votes.

Conway also talked about the president’s appearance at a wheelbarrow factory in Harrisburg, where he signed two executive orders. She said the documents “really tell the tale of the first 100 days and then looking toward the future,” explaining: “He is cracking down on cheaters and abusers within the trade and manufacturing arenas, and he has established, as of yesterday on his 100th day, an Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, so that there’s a White House liaison with commerce in this office that is going to go ahead and review these bilateral and multilateral trade agreements and make sure they’re fair to America, American workers, American interests.”

The staffer maintained that “the American people really appreciate the fact that Trump has kept his promises, and they really feel that the country is safer more prosperous.” However, recent national polls tell a different story. Trump’s approval rating of about 40 percent is lower than that of any previous president after 100 days in office. At that point in Barack Obama’s first term, nearly 65 percent of voters gave him a favorable rating.
