Everywhere you look, Trump is happening. Whether you love him or hate him, he's there. April 29th marked Donald Trump's 100th day in office serving as the President of the United States, and the media couldn't get enough of it. The milestone was talked about constantly on his 100th day and is still being discussed now, a whole week later. I am someone who personally falls in the "disliking" of Trump category and I feel like his first 100 days in office has brought forth a lot of negativity. So with that in mind, I decided to compile a list of 100 great things that have happened despite Donald Trump being sworn into office. We all could use some more positivity, that's for certain.
