As Trump’s first one hundred days in office come to a close, Americans are reflecting on what the president and his administration have been able to accomplish since stepping into the White House. To call these first hundred days tumultuous would be an understatement, as Trump’s attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare collapsed before it was even voted on and tensions with North Korea, Russia and even Canada have ratcheted up considerably. Trump told his base that he would run the country like a business, but the American government doesn’t operate like a business.

A federal judge has ordered the Arkansas authorities to conduct an autopsy on the body of an executed inmate whose lawyer described his death as "horrifying," including jerking and convulsions during his lethal injection. Judge Kristine Baker of the US Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas issued the order late Friday, less than 24 hours after the state executed the 38-year-old convicted multiple murderer Kenneth Williams. Arkansas officials had said the compressed timeline was necessary because the state's stock of a sedative used in the lethal injection, midazolam, was set to expire at the end of April.
