Mr Trump's rally on Saturday night in Harrisburg offered a familiar recapitulation of what he and aides have argued for days are administration successes, including the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, his cabinet choices and the approval of construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. NPR's Scott Horsley reports.
In his opening remarks at the rally in Harrisburg on Saturday evening, he mentioned the "big gathering" in Washington - the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner, which he declined to attend and dismissed the event as "a large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media" who he said were "consoling each other in a hotel ballroom", The Washington Post reported.
"And I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington's swamp". Their priorities are not my priorities, and they're not your priorities, believe me.
In a document written as a contract with voters during the election campaign Trump promised to start work on a wave of new bills during his first 100 days, but few of the pledges have so far been met. And frankly, the people are really happy about it.
Some of the animosity stemmed from United States media evaluating Trump's 100-day record as meager and mixed.
"We have accomplished 100 days of action, they've never seen anything like this", he proclaimed. He wants to be with his people.
Hours before the dinner, Trump tweeted that the "FAKE media" failed to trumpet his accomplishments. Vice President Mike Pence was also not present for the occasion. We had sowing mills and all the other stuff.
"There is no place I would rather be than right here in Pennsylvania to celebrate our 100-day milestone to reflect on an incredible journey together and to get ready for the great, great battles to come and that we will win in every case", the president told an enthusiastic throng in Harrisburg.
