Trump marking 100th day with 'big rally'

Pa. donors gave more than $1.8 million for Trump inauguration

Trump announces "BIG" Pennsylvania rally marking 100 days in office

"Look forward to it!"

President Donald Trump announced on Saturday he is planning a "BIG" rally to mark his 100th day in office on April 29th. In a separate tweet he said he'll be announcing tax reforms this week, though the topic of the Saturday rally was not specified.

The rally is the same night as the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, which Mr. Trump has said he will skip. Comic Hasan Minahj, who has made his distaste for Trump pretty clear, will host this year's event.

In a tweet posted early Friday, Trump called the landmark date a "ridiculous standard". Trump exclaimed about his event in a Twitter message Saturday to his 28 million followers from his personal account.

As many quickly pointed out, Trump himself had often referred to the 100-day marker as an important point of his presidency. It was part of his stump speech in the final week of the campaign - he asked his crowds in Minnesota, Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and elsewhere to "imagine what we can accomplish in the first 100 days of a Trump administration". They were often characterized by violence, not from rioters or protesters, but from attendees, though that has slipped Trump's mind time and time again.
