In late October, the president made 28 promises for his first 100 days. These were not the only promises the president made for his first 100 days, but they comprised the “contract with the American voter” Trump introduced immediately before the election.
Here are Trump’s promises, followed by where they stand:
• "Propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress.“ Not proposed.
• "A requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated.“ Done.
• "A five-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service.” Done for White House officials, with loopholes.
• "A lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.“ Done.
• "A complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.” Not done.
• "I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205.“ Done.
• "I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.” Done.
• "I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator.“ Not done — says he won’t.
• "I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately.” Done.
• "I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.“ In process: Trump ordered a review of what regulations to cut.
• "Lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward.” Done.
• "Cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.“ Not done.
• "Cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama.” Done.
• "Begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.“ Done. Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the Supreme Court.
• "Cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities.” Done, but blocked by federal judge.
• "Begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back.“ Done.
• "Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.” Done, but blocked by federal courts — twice.
Overall, Trump is 14 for 18 on these actions and measures.
