At 100 days in, Trump seems both outsider and insider

He used the same speech on Saturday to attack the news media and praise his own accomplishment.

Trump scheduled his rally for the same night as the annual White House Correspondents Association dinner, which the president and his staff skipped.

"A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation's capital right now", Trump said to loud boos from the crowd. "They are gathered together for the White House Correspondents Dinner without the President".

The President held the rally at the same time as the Washington press corps and some bold-faced names were preparing for the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

On a threshold that Trump has both derided and tried to define, the president also said he is putting Americans first even as he learns on the job.

The state was critical to Trump's victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in November.

Trump signed the order on the 100th day of his presidency at a Pennsylvania company that makes shovels.

"The TPP would have been a tremendous disaster for our country", he said.

Other trade deals allowing nations such as China, Russia and India to contribute to "the theft and plunder of American wealth" were being torn up, Trump said.

The US President listed what he said were some of his key early accomplishments, including the successful confirmation to theUS Supreme Court of Justice Neil Gorsuch and clearing awaymany regulations on the environment and business.

Netanyahu Boasts of 'Unprecedented Growth' in Israel's Foreign Relations
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, shown in Berlin March 22, 2017, recently visited Israel. Nevertheless, on Tuesday evening, Gabriel met with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

Trump says the media are trapped at the dinner in Washington and he predicts it will be "very, very boring".

According to the organisers, similar protests were taking place in 300 towns and cities across the country.

Trump's approval ratings now hover at around 40%, which is believed to be lower than any other president at the 100-day mark.

On Sunday morning the Trump administration doubled down on the president's remarks about the media, with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus telling ABC's Jonathan Karl that the president wants to make it easier to sue media outlets who publish stories unfavorable to him.

To cheers in Harrisburg, Pa., he accused the news media of "fake news" and said if their job was to be honest and tell the truth, then they deserved "a big, fat failing grade".

A failed effort to overhaul President Barack Obama's health care law behind him, President Trump is turning to what he's billed as the nation's biggest tax cut.

Bernstein also addressed lying and secrecy in the Nixon White House, but stopped short of drawing a direct parallel to President Donald Trump's administration. Television networks even invited behind-the-scenes employees.

Earlier Saturday, Trump posted a commentary on the Washington Post's website that cataloged numerous actions taken by the White House since January. It was well-received in the room - because it was amusing! - but will just add fuel to the fire Trump has been stoking nearly since the day he entered the presidential race.

Mr Trump described cable TV news channels CNN and MSNBC as "fake news" and said reporters from the outlets "would love to be with us right here tonight".
