President Trump on Saturday said "perhaps no administration" has done more in its first nine months than his administration, citing the White House's progress on job growth and other achievements.

"I agree getting Tax Cuts approved is important (we will also get HealthCare), but perhaps no Administration has done more in its first 9 months than this Administration. Over 50 Legislation approvals, massive regulation cuts, energy freedom, pipelines, border security, 2nd Amendment, Strong Military, ISIS, historic VA improvement, Supreme Court Justice, Record Stock Market, lowest unemployment in 17 yrs!" Trump said in a series of tweets.

The tweets follow Senate Republicans passing the 2018 fiscal budget this week, taking the first step toward passing a tax plan and fulfilling a long-held campaign pledge.

U.S. stocks also hit record closing highs on Friday, with all three market indexes extending their recent run of records, Reuters reported.

Trump has said on numerous occasions that his administration is outperforming those of past presidents. 


Earlier this week, Trump touted efforts during his tenure to roll back various regulations, claiming that his administration has done more so far than "any president in history."

He similarly tweeted in August that, "few, if any, Administrations have done more in just 7 months than the Trump A. Bills passed, regulations killed, border, military, ISIS, SC."

Trump has sought to dispel notions that his administration has been unproductive since the Senate failed to repeal ObamaCare, the first of the Trump administration's legislative priorities. In July, a vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed in the Senate by a vote of 51-49.

During his first 100 days in office, Trump did sign the most bills into law of any president in the last 70 years. But the majority were small-bore items. The president has approved more than a dozen measures rolling back Obama-era regulations.
