WASHINGON: US President Donald Trump, who completed 500 days in the White House today, said that many believe that he has achieved more than any of his predecessors in the same time frame.

He also said that America has become the best economy ever under his leadership.

Trump had imposed penalty tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from major trading partners of the US, including Canada.

"This is my 500th day in office and we have accomplished a lot - many believe more than any President in his first 500 days," Trump tweeted.

"Massive tax & regulation cuts, military & vets, lower crime & illegal immigration, stronger borders, judgeships, best economy and jobs ever, and much more," he said.

Asserting that since taking office, Trump has strengthened American leadership, security, prosperity and accountability, the White House said: "after 500 days, the results are clear: the American economy is stronger, American workers are experiencing more opportunities, confidence is soaring and business is booming".

"Trump has re-asserted American leadership on the world stage, secured vital investments in our military, and stood up against threats to our national security. He has put the American people first and made the government more accountable," the White House said.

Trump followed through on his promise to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the White House said, adding that he ordered an end to United States' participation in the horrible Iran deal, and immediately began the process of re-imposing sanctions that had been lifted or waived.
