President's tenure has been a mixed bag so far.

Trump has shown a strong focus on what he can get done in his first 100 days in office, and it's been clear for weeks that he's known it would be a major early measure of his presidency.

The president has received mostly positive marks for his decision to launch a missile strike against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad for its use of chemical weapons in a rebel-controlled region of Syria. By contrast, Trump aides said, the law was used only once before by other presidents.
