Story highlights

  • Trump's 100th day comes Saturday
  • He is touting accomplishments ahead of the marker

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's 100th day in office comes Saturday, and despite his downplaying of the significance of the marker, his team is prepped and ready to tout his accomplishments.

In a memo obtained first by CNN, the White House highlights job creation efforts, regulation cuts and national security measures, among others.
    But not all the initiatives have been unqualified success -- Trump's travel ban, which is listed, is currently stalled in the court system.
    Further, the bulk of Trump's accomplishments have been made through executive action or memorandum, something Republicans decried Obama for doing during his second term. There are 37 points in this list and 23 (62%) were accomplished by executive order or memorandum.
