The term “First 100 Days” of a presidential term was coined by Franklin D. Roosevelt on a radio address in 1933. The First 100 Days of a presidential term has come to serve as a demonstration of the president’s ability to work efficiently and keep their promises to the people. The First 100 Days are especially important for presidents as they work to attain high approval ratings as early as possible.
