Trump ‘Happy’ with first 100 days

U.S. President Donald Trump has often been criticized for his actions and policies, but he says he’s happy with his administration’s accomplishments in the first 100 days.

I don’t think anybody has done what we’ve been able to do in 100 days, so we’re very happy.

満足している、批判されてきた、政策、政権、成果、誰もしたことがないと思う

The President withdrew the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement. But he has fulfilled* only a fraction of what he pledged during the campaign. His attempt to ban the entry of immigrants from Middle Eastern and other countries as an anti-terrorism measure has been blocked by the courts.

And Trump’s plan to build a wall along the border with Mexico is stalled due to funding problems, and no prospects of gaining cooperation from the southern neighbor. Congress is mulling a health care bill after a failure last month to repeal the affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. On the military front, U.S. forces launched an airstrike in Syria in early April in response to the country’s alleged use of chemical weapons.

A recent poll by the Washington Post and ABC News shows Trump’s approval rate at 42 percent, the lowest among post-World War 2 president.

Sixth-grader patents recycling bin

A sixth-grade girl in Aichi Prefecture patented a new type of recycling bin that she developed for cans. It automatically separates cans with a magnet. Aluminum cans fall straight down, but steel cans are pulled into another compartment by magnetic force. The bin is made of inexpensive material and can be bought at home improvement stores. It is very rare for an elementary student to get a patent.
