"I was in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, with an overflow, energetic, enthusiastic crowd for this president and his message", Conway said.

"Like politicians and presidents sometimes, perhaps too frequently, we make mistakes and go too far", Woodward said. After touting his administration's early accomplishments, the president reaffirmed his commitment to putting American interests first.

But the onetime anti-establishment candidate who promised to "drain the swamp" in Washington appears to have recognized - with a mix of naivete and craftiness - that he has one of the most hard jobs in the world. So he started his rally by belittling reporters, reminding his supporters that Washington journalists were busy cavorting in a ballroom with Hollywood celebrities at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

The state was critical to Trump's victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in November. Trump won Pennsylvania with 48 per cent of the vote, the first time the state had voted for a Republican presidential candidate since George H.W. Bush in 1988.

HORSLEY: On his way to the rally, Trump dropped by a wheelbarrow factory owned by the Ames Company, which has been manufacturing tools here since before the American Revolution.

In addition to speaking at the rally, Trump signed two executive orders in Harrisburg, one directing a review all United States trade agreements and the second establishing the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy.

The goal is to determine whether the U.S.is being treated fairly by its trading partners and the 164-nation World Trade Organization.

Trump's rally Saturday night in Harrisburg offered a familiar recapitulation of what he and aides have argued for days are administration successes, including the successful confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, his Cabinet choices and the approval of construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

Meanwhile, North Korea's missile launch Saturday signaled its continued defiance against the U.S., China and other nations, on which President Trump tweeted: "Bad!" I've had things that were tougher, although I'll let you know that better at the end of eight years.

'I'll be making a big decision on the Paris accord over the next two weeks and we will see what happens, ' Mr Trump said.

Despite polls showing supporter remain largely in his corner Trump downplayed the importance of the 100 day marker, call it a "false standard".

In his first 100 days in office, Trump signed more executive orders than any president has since Harry Truman more than 70 years ago.

"The media deserves a big, fat, failing grade", Trump said to roughly 6,000 roaring fans in the New Holland Arena at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center. It apparently falls short of Reagan's in 1981, and tax experts are sceptical that the plan would pay for itself, as Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has claimed.

The last time Trump attended the dinner was in 2011, when he was a NY real estate mogul and reality TV star who had just jumped into politics by getting involved in the "birther" movement, calling for President Barack Obama to release his birth certificate.
