7:00 am
this morning, 100 days. donald trump's milestone. >> the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country's history. >> what he's accomplished -- >> i, neil m. gorsuch -- >> and the battles that lie ahead. >> we'll build a wall. don't even think about it. plus a road trip to a key battleground state. voters handing out their progress reports. failed launch, north korea's missile test. a short to medium-range weapon breaking up just minutes after takeoff. tensions between washington and pyongyang ratcheted even higher. our bob woodruff in neighboring south korea with the mood on the ground.
7:01 am
attempted cop killer with a 100-year prison term now on the run. >> a white male in a jumpsuit. >> the all-out search to find him on the ground and in the air. severe storms. flash flooding hitting parts of the nation's heartland. cars floating down the street. torrential hail pounding cars and roads. what's still to come for the 40 million americans in the danger zone. good morning. sorry, i was talking to rob about whether he was going to wear a three-piece suit this morning. anyway, let's get to our top story. you are looking at a live shot of the white house where donald trump is waking up on this day 100 of his presidency. >> if you do the math it's only 6.8% into his presidency and he's dealing with an unpleasant gift from the north koreans in the form of
7:02 am
overnight. >> trump is going to spend much of this day in pennsylvania where he will hold a rally capping his first 100 days skipping the annual white house correspondent's dinner back in d.c. >> the president has called the 100-day mark a ridiculous standard while boasting about all that he has accomplished. >> let's look at the score card here. the president has scored wins on installing a new supreme court justice, neil gorsuch, and pulling out of the controversial trance pacific partnership. >> the tpp. however, his attempt to repeal and replace obamacare went down in flames as did his travel ban and one of his marquee promises, building the wall, that remains in progress this morning. >> so much to talk about. we have team coverage with reporters from korea to the u.s. capitol and kick it off with david wright who's at the white house. >> reporter: 100 days is the unofficial
7:03 am
donald trump entered office with a splash and the seas are still choppy. >> my fellow americans -- >> reporter: this morning in his weekly address, the president gives himself top marks. >> i truly believe that the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country's history. >> reporter: plenty of others might dispute that, but not the national rifle association. on friday, they gave him a warm welcome. >> as your president, i will never, ever infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. never, ever. >> reporter: trump has certainly changed the tone here in washington, but he has yet to pass a single major piece of legislation. his budget and his plan to repeal and replace obamacare -- >> obamacare is a disaster. >> reporter: -- stalled at least for now. back in the hands of a republican congress. >> i'm disappointed
7:04 am
>> reporter: trump's biggest victory -- >> i, neil m. gorsuch -- >> reporter: a new conservative justice to fill the 9th seat in the u.s. supreme court. >> and i got it done in the first 100 days. >> reporter: he signed 29 bills into law but his journey has been turbulent, too. his temporary travel ban on seven predominantly muslim countries blocked by the courts. his promise to build that mexican border wall in limbo. >> we'll build the wall, don't even think about it. >> reporter: trump was critical of president obama's use of executive orders, calling them major power grabs of authority. but he signed more than obama did in his first 100 days. 30 executive orders so far. >> i loved my previous life. i had so many things going. >> reporter: speaking to reuters, the president had this to say about his first 100 days. >> this is more work than in my previous life. i thought it would be easier. >> reporter: tonight as the white house
7:05 am
its annual black tie correspondent's dinner, the president is headed to harrisburg to tour a lawn mower factory and hold a campaign rally, clearly hoping for that split screen moment, the press that he loves to bash living it up in fancy dress while he's out there amongst the people. dan, paula? >> it will be an interesting primetime split screen tonight. david, thank you. the president has signed more than two dozen bills into law in his first 100 days but that includes no major legislation even though his party controls both houses of congress. let's bring in abc's mary bruce who's also in washington and covers the capitol for us. mary, what gives? >> reporter: dan, over these past 100 days, the negotiator in chief has been struggling to seal the deal with congress even though as you mentioned the republicans are in control of capitol hill. the president has yet to win a single legislative victory. that doesn't mean there hasn't been plenty of activity. republicans have been busy but their goals keeping running into a harsh political reality, the divisions within theirwn
7:06 am
they've been working for weeks to gain enough support to fulfill their pledge to repeal and replace obamacare, but they keep coming up short. the divisions so deep they're threatening the president's legislative priorities. >> so what comes next here? how does the president navigate this relationship with congress and get his own party to come together and move forward? >> reporter: despite the slow start, republicans insist the best is yet to come. on health care there have been signs of progress recently, and if they can manage to get that done, their hope is it will create a path for tax reform, some of those other big-ticket items. now, the president says he's disappointed that things aren't moving more quickly and he notes this system is tough. even house speaker paul ryan admits after 8 years in the opposition party under the obama administration, republicans are having growing pains. >> mary bruce, thank you very much. president trump is revolutionizing the way the commander-in-chief communicates with the american public,
7:07 am
twitter to bypass the traditional media. we've crunched the data around want to share some interesting insights. his most popular tweet so far, in response to the massive protest at his inauguration trump wrote, quote, peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. i recognize the right of people to express their views. it was during his third week that this was tweeted the most, mentioning his nomination of neil gorsuch to the supreme court. secretary of state rex tillerson being sworn in and attacking the judge that blocked his immigration ban. but his most popular tweet was, make america great again. so what does he tweet about the most? these words, democrats, fake news, media, russia and obamacare. we have a great interactive feature on our website that lets you filter tweets by topics, time of day and even the ones he has written in all caps. again, these originating from the real donald trump account, over 470 tweets, dan,
7:08 am
>> i thought we would have seen the words sad and bad more prominently in that list. >> you would have been wrong. >> not the first time, not the first time. paula, thank you. overnight the president was tweeting about the story that high school transfixed much of this planet, the crises with north korea. the north koreans have attempted another missile launch and abc's bob woodruff is in seoul, south korea covering it all. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. yes, this missile was launched overnight and clearly this was once again kim jong-un flexing his muscles. despite the growing pressure from both the u.s. and china, today another show of force. this time a short to medium-range missile believed to be a new type, a kn-17, that broke up just minutes after launch, according to u.s. military officials, it exploded on north korean soil. president trump treated that the failed launch disrespected the wishes of china and its highly respected president. but trump has also
7:09 am
over kim jong-un who has never met china's president, and there is no indication that that will change. >> i have a lot of respect and i really like president xi. i don't know that he's going to be able to pull it off. it may have to be a much more difficult ending, to be honest with you. >> reporter: on thursday, trump said anything could happen. >> there's a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with north korea. absolutely. >> reporter: as for south korea about the launch, investments reaction this morning. i asked these people what they think about the missiles and north korea, they say a few words, but what they care about the most is who's going to be the next president in the election on may 9th. the sound in seoul is just politics, campaigns to win the presidential election ten days from now. now, south koreans also told us that it's not
7:10 am
anger. they're angry about what trump said yesterday, $1 billion for the launchers that could stop the north korean missile. in the newspapers today, here are some of the words in the headlines describing the reaction as bewildered, puzzled, shocked, betrayed and also describing president trump incomprehensible, quote unquote, but no response yet from president trump this morning. >> bob woodruff reporting from seoul this morning. thank you. joining us now from washington is retired kornell steve ganyard. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. >> this launch is significant because the u.s. has an aircraft carrier in waters nearby but this is their third launch this month alone. what can you tell us about this particular missile? i believe they're dubbing it a carrier killer. >> paula, this is interesting because this is a missile that we saw for the first time in that parade a couple weeks
7:11 am
in pyongyang. one of the things they noticed is there were guidance spins. as this parade went by they could see that it had guidance spins. analysts think this is intended to attack u.s. aircraft carriers. kim jong-un has been very careful here not to launch a long-range missile or to do a nuclear test in a way that would be provocative to the point that the trump administration would put new economic sanctions in place. so they will continue to test. they'll continue to develop these missiles, but this missile in and of itself was not especially provocative. >> steve, interesting noises coming out of the trump administration. on the one hand you have the president warning of a potent l potentially marriage conflict. and then you have secretary tillerson say yesterday that maybe the u.s. will engage in talks with north korea. do you see that happening? >> that's one of the things the u.s. has resisted for years, both democrat and republican pr
7:12 am
i think what you saw yesterday from secretary tillerson is a little softening. he was clear to say we don't want regime change. we just want something that would look like a freeze. they'll continue to ramp up diplomatic pressure. the military pressure continues to get ramped up. the real cards that the administration and all of the u.n. has to play are the economic cards, and we should see those rolled out in the days to come. >> china a key part of that. steve ganyard, thank you very much for your analysis on this saturday morning. we want to talk more now about the president's first 100 days in office. we've got a pair of wringers with us this morning. abc news political commentator cokie roberts and republican strategist alex cats yan knows. cokie, how would you grade president trump's first 100 days? >> i'd give him a gentleman's c which is probably what he got in
7:13 am
delivered on those promises and the promises were bold, the wall and repealing obamacare. but he has succeeded in getting the supreme court justice confirmed, and he has rolled back some of what he would consider government overreach in the obama administration through his executive orders. but it has been such a sort of chaotic 100 days. now, a lot of voters seem to like that, but it is a little distressing when you look around and see that hundreds, i mean hundreds, of federal officials have not been named -- not confirmed, not named. so it's kind of home alone at the agencies and it's hard to get something done under those circumstances. >> alex, cokie paints a bit of a rocky picture there. how would you grade these first 100 days? >> i think it's understandable if you're a washington insider and you think
7:14 am
legislating, you're going to give donald trump a harsh grade. but if you look at the impact he's had on the economy, america's place in the world and on washington itself, you're going to give him an a. if you're russia and you got bombed in syria, you have renewed respect for america. if you're china you have a better relationship. if you're north korea, your missiles are blowing up. if you're a defense contractor, your worry about what you charge the government now because the president of the united states will renegotiate that in public. if you're a business thinking about taking your jobs to mexico, you're thinking twice. if you're concerned about the supreme court legislating instead of just calling balls and strikes, you're happy with a new supreme court justice. so he's had quite an impact. not legislatively. >> a gentleman's c from cokie and a from alex. cokie, what do you think has been his best moment? >> i agree with
7:15 am
moment of the president bombing syria, whether it was a one-off or whether it means something, we don't know. but it showed a sense of action and i think that one of the real hits against obama was that he was very cautious in that situation. clearly people rallied around trump in that moment. but again, we don't know what that means for the long term. >> alex, what do you think has been the president's not so stellar moment thus far? >> i think when the president realized that he didn't have enough children to run the family businesses and the entire federal government, that was a big eye opener. i think there have been moments when the president has felt slighted and perhaps his ego bruised and it became more about donald trump than about leading the american people. in the inaugural when there's a debate about crowd size and not about economic size, those moments i think donald trump suffers.
7:16 am
roberts we thank you very much for your analysis on day 100 of the trump presidency. my quick math shows we've got 1,360 days to go in this first term. >> or 93.2% left. >> exactly. >> we're really good at math this morning. my mind hurts just thinking about that. all right, thanks, guys. we want to turn to the dangerous weather that is hitting the central part of the country. the national weather service saying the flash flooding could threaten lives and rob has been tracking it all for us. >> impressive math with you and impressive storms exploding here with numbers that are going to be piling up. look at these storms exploding from oklahoma city all the way back through louisville. take a look at what happened in southern indiana last night and some of the rain creating flooding to where this car is actually spinning down the roadway. so we'll see more of this and this as well. hail last night in

7:18 am
enough, there's a lot of snow on the backside of this system, including denver and other places. we'll talk more about that in the next half-hour. >> i got chased out of denver by that snow yesterday as a matter of fact. >> in the nick of time. >> thank you, robert. let's get it over to robert for a look of the day's other headlines. what's happening? >> dan, good morning, paula, adrian and robert, good morning, everyone. good morning, america. we're going to begin overseas in egypt with pope francis celebrating a mass after two christian churches why bombed. terry moran is in cairo this morning. >> it's been a remarkable day for pope francis. this man of peace preaching tolerance but surrounded every step of the way by bristling security in a land torn by conflict. francis motorcading through the locked down streets of cairo to the

it is no mistake that donald trump will be marking his 100th day in office with a rally in pennsylvania tonight. that state really helped him win the white house, but how are people in that battleground state feeling about president trump now that he's been in power for 100 days? i recently went on a road trip.
7:41 am
>> reporter: donald trump fought hard to eek out a victory in pennsylvania. the state was so important that he came here shortly before the election to lay out his agenda for his first 100 days. >> on november 8th, americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our country. >> reporter: now that day 100 is here, we traveled to pennsylvania to take the pulse of the voters. we talked to voters in bucks county. >> how are you? nice to meet you. >> reporter: a battleground county within a battleground state. >> this is a four-year term and we're 100 days. nobody starts out hitting the ground doing everything. >> reporter: pat and milo voted for trump. lauren and robin voted for clinton. and brian, a college student, is a never trumper. >> i thought the campaign for both sides was kind of an embarrassment. i really disliked both candidates quite a lot. >> if you had to give a grate, what would you give? >> i don't give grades. i'm not a
