US president Donald Trump said he has had the “most productive” first 100 days in office.
“I don’t think that there is a presidential period of time in the first 100 days where anyone has done nearly what we’ve been able to do,” he insisted.
“You see that this president has done a lot in 100 days,” counselor Kellyanne Conway told Fox & Friends on Tuesday.
Verdict takes a look at what Trump has accomplished since taking the oath of office on 20 January.
