The White House is launching a new webpage touting President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump says he doesn't want to use 'adversary' to describe Russia Comey urges Americans to vote for Democrats in midterms Roby wins Alabama GOP runoff, overcoming blowback from Trump criticism MORE’s first 100 days in office, even after Trump last week said judging presidents at the 100-day mark is a “ridiculous standard.”

“In his first 100 days, President Donald J. Trump has taken bold action to restore prosperity, keep Americans safe and secure, and hold government accountable,” the webpage says.

The website includes three main themes for the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency: economic prosperity, security both at home and abroad, and government accountability.

“At an historic pace, this President has enacted more legislation and signed more executive orders than any other president in over a half century,” the site says.

“With a focus on rebuilding the military, ending illegal immigration, and restoring confidence in our economy, the President is keeping his promises to the American people.”

Trump has in recent days been hostile toward the 100-day milestone but insisted he has accomplished a great deal during that time.

“No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!” he wrote on Twitter last week.

During an interview with The Associated Press, released Sunday, Trump called a president's first 100 days “an artificial barrier.”

“I think the 100 days is, you know, it's an artificial barrier. It's not very meaningful,” he told the AP. “I think I've established amazing relationships that will be used the four or eight years, whatever period of time I'm here.”

The launch of the website comes as Trump approaches his 100th day in office, on Saturday. The president will host a rally that night in Pennsylvania, which coincides with the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner in Washington.

Trump and his staff announced earlier this year that they would skip the dinner, breaking with years of political tradition.
