President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office has had a "positive impact on millions of Americans," and he has "enacted more legislation and signed more executive orders" during that time period "than any president in a half century," presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said in an opinion piece for USA Today.
His accomplishments, she writes, took place "despite historic Democratic obstruction."
"Justice Neil M. Gorsuch sits on the Supreme Court," she wrote in the article published Saturday. "Illegal border crossings are at a 17-year low. U.S. exports have spiked to a two-year high."
In addition, the number of people who are collecting unemployment is at a 17-year low, because "the economy has created hundreds of thousands of jobs," said Conway. Trump, she continued, has "started to chip away" at regulations, leading to a savings of an estimated $18 billion a year.
Trump has also started to "restore America's standing in the world" through investments in the military, along with swift action in Syria and Afghanistan. He's also held 16 meetings with world leaders, she said.
She also attacked the media, saying the facts about Trump "fly in the face" of a "presumptively negative portrayal."
"A recent study found that 89 percent of the broadcast media’s coverage of President Trump has been negative, even as objective measures indicate that Americans are feeling extraordinarily optimistic with President Trump at the helm," said Conway. "Yet most Americans discern the difference between news and noise, and they want their country – and their President – to succeed."
Conway also pointed to a Pew Research Center survey showing consumer confidence is at its highest level in more than 16 years. She also noted that manufacturers and homebuilders are also marking record confidence levels.
"In three short months, President Trump has delivered on his vow to the forgotten men and women of America to upend a swamp-like system that favors special interests and the powerful," Conway also wrote.
