Trump signs two executive orders on trade

Ellis Copeland | 01 May, 2017, 15:13

Between the Rolling Stones' songs echoing through the arena and scattered chants of "Lock her up" and "Build that wall", one might think President Donald Trump was gearing up for an election Saturday evening. He opened the rally with an extended attack on the media, pointing out that he was choosing to stay away from the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner.

During a Friday press gaggle on Air Force One, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer downplayed the significance of the rally coinciding with the WHCA dinner, "Well, respectfully, it's also his 100th day in office".

The last time Trump attended the dinner was in 2011, when he was a NY real estate mogul and reality TV star who had just jumped into politics by getting involved in the "birther" movement, calling for President Barack Obama to release his birth certificate.

It is certainly true that the president campaigned on that promise, and it is also true that he's following through with it.

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 buzz around Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner snowballed with news outlets pulling out of the regular Correspondents' Dinner and President Trump himself stating that he would hold a rally in Pennsylvania in lieu of attending.

During his first 100 days in office, the USA leader's pronouncements on trade, taxes and foreign policy have tended to generate a burst of activity in the world's biggest financial market.

"Executive orders in line to be signed Saturday would be the 31st and 32nd since Trump took office -- the most of any president in his first 100 days since World War II".

President Donald Trump arrives to speak at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, Pa., Saturday, April 29, 2017, on the 100th day of his presidency.

'I was in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, with an overflow, energetic, enthusiastic crowd for this president and his message, ' said Conway.

Trump began his speech by acknowledging his supporters in the room, before quickly shifting to the topic of the correspondents' dinner. They always do. We all prefer immediate results that align exactly with our own notion of what's best, but such scenarios rarely exist - if at all - and certainly not when building consensus in a place like Washington, D.C.

"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 told the crowd.

As Trump continued to deride the media, a protestor brandishing a Russian flag and shouting "Trump's a traitor" was ejected from the arena by local authorities. What we've seen from the Trump Administration is a team dedicated to empowering American job-creators and workers. "We are not fake news, we are not failing news organizations, and we are not the enemy of the American people", Mason said. "That is why I withdrew the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership".

In a speech reminiscent of his presidential campaign rallies, Trump hit the road trumpeting his initial achievements and lashed out at his critics.

Trump spoke for over an hour before wrapping up to head back to the White House, "I say these words to you tonight". "Obviously, we've focused a lot more on Trump, but when we can, we try to take shots at everyone-we try to cover different perspectives".
