Sarah Palin: Trump has done 'very well' in his first 100 days

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is complimentary about President Trump's first 100 days in office, saying he is doing "very well."

She made the comment during an interview with Breitbart News Daily Thursday, telling host Alex Marlow, "I'm extremely pleased, of course, that our new president is in there building the team that he believes he needs in order to fulfill promises to the American electorate, to make America great again, and I'm very, very happy that he's there."

Palin declined, however, to grade the new White House, saying, "Those who are asking for a grade of this administration, just keep remembering it could have been [Democratic nominee Hillary] Clinton."

She then went on to praise Trump's foreign policy leadership, his success in getting Neil Gorsuch confirmed to the Supreme Court, and his tax reform initiative.

However, she also cautioned that "we can never put our faith and our hope in man, in any one man, certainly not a politician. Man is fallible."

Palin made a notable visit to Trump in the White House last week with musicians Ted Nugent and Kid Rock.

Business Insider notes that Palin was one of his early supporters in the presidential campaign; though there is speculation she was considered for a position in the administration, for whatever reason, it never happened.
