WASHINGTON - Saturday marks the 100th day of Donald Trump's office as the 45th president of the United States. Following are the key events in the 100 days:
Jan. 20 -- Trump is sworn in as president amid protests. His election reflects division in the U.S. society.
Jan. 27 -- Trump signs his first executive order to ban the entry into the United States by people from seven Muslim-majority countries. The order and a subsequent watered-down version of the ban is blocked by federal judges.
Feb. 13 -- Trump's National Security Advisor Michael Flynn resigns for inappropriate connections to Russia prior to Trump's inauguration.
Feb. 28 -- Trump makes his first speech to a joint session of Congress, which is widely credited by pundits and U.S. media as a success. Trump is thought to be "presidential" for the first time.
March 24 -- Trump's first attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, fails when House Republicans decide not to present a draft bill for voting as a result of lack of support within their own party.
April 7 -- Trump meets with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Florida. The meeting is widely perceived as a positive engagement between the two leaders, which will create favorable conditions for the development of the bilateral ties. (Xinhua)
