Trade order, campaign rally on Trump's 100th day

Instead, in Harrisburg Mr Trump opened his rally with a broadside against the media. "They see what's happening".

Crucially, to bring back our jobs, we are going to pursue a complete renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement: We've lost almost a third of our manufacturing jobs in the 23 years since that bad deal was approved.

Pennsylvania was among four critical swing states - along with Florida, Ohio and MI - that Trump won in November.

When a member of the riled-up crowd brought up the wall, Mr Trump responded: "Oh, don't worry, we're going to have the wall".

"We will renegotiate NAFTA and if we don't reach a fair deal for our country (...) we will terminate", Trump said.

Trump says the media are trapped at the dinner in Washington and he predicts it will be "very, very boring". Well, according to the president, he's got them beat. The president's senior staff boycotted the dinner as a show of solidarity with their boss. He also once again referred to The New York Times as "failing". Trump's statements, however, are in stark contrast to the fact that he hasn't managed to make the quick progress he promised on many of his campaign pledges. The threat from North Korea, getting a health care bill passed and possibly renegotiating the Paris climate accord were among the big talking points of the almost one-hour speech.

The president had kinder words for China, saying its president, Xi Jinping, was trying "very, very hard" to temper the flaring tensions over North Korea. We've reasserted American leadership by holding the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria accountable for its monstrous use of banned chemical weapons against helpless, innocent civilians.

The United States has pledged to step up sanctions to force North Korea to resume dialogue over its nuclear programme, as Trump warned of the risk of a "major conflict" with Pyongyang.

"They are a disgrace", he said.

"Together we are seeing that great achievements are possible when we put American people first", Trump said in his weekly radio and internet address.

Decline in consumption leads to slowest U.S. economy growth in 3 years
The overall GDP deflator rose at a 2.2 percent annual rate, with the core PCE rising at a 2.0 percent annual rate in the quarter. In the first quarter of 2017, the economy saw growth of just 0.7%, the smallest rate of growth in 3 years .

The speech was interrupted by protesters - and their calls were drowned out by supporters chanting "USA!" Mr Trump had started to chip away at a burdensome regulatory framework that stifled entrepreneurship and innovation, and overseas the President had shown strength and resolve by military action in Syria and Afghanistan, she wrote.

President Donald Trump is sounding wistful as he reflects on his first 100 days on the job. In addition to guaranteeing the repeal of the Affordable Healthcare Act (known as Obamacare) - a process that failed on his administration's first attempt - he also told hundreds of his followers that he would still have the infamous border wall between Mexico and the U.S. built. He faulted his predecessor, former President Barack Obama: "The previous administration gave us a mess".

"We need the wall to stop the drugs and the human trafficking". Trump asked. The crowd roared with affirmation. Trump intoned, dedicating the reading to the border patrol service for "keeping America safe".

And echoing some of the rhetoric of his inaugural address, Trump told the crowd that regardless of race, "we all bleed the same red blood of patriots", that "we are all made by the same Almighty God", and that "we are Americans and the future belongs to us". He described the pact, meant to curb global warming, as an impediment to U.S. economic growth. The president himself seems keenly aware that the day is historically a symbolic moment for the media, pundits, the country and perhaps even much of the world to assess his young presidency.

He claims to have already achieved the greatest reduction in illegal crossings into the United States during his time in office, "and we've only just started".

"We all share the same glorious freedoms of our magnificent country".

"As long as we remember these truths", Trump said, "we will not fail".

She added: "These facts fly in the face of a presumptively negative portrayal by many in the media".

"It's driving all them a little bit insane".

President Donald Trump is marking his 100th day in office by talking tough on trade.
