Donald Trump's first 100 days: The 100 best (or worst) photos of the US President

Saturday 29 April will be the 100th day of Donald Trump's presidency. He swept into office on a wave of populism, making a raft of promises: he'd immediately repeal Obamacare, he'd impose a travel ban on Muslims and he'd finally build that wall along the Mexican border – and get Mexico to pay for it. However, of the 38 specific promises Trump made in his 100-day "contract" with voters, he's accomplished 10, mostly through executive orders that don't require legislation. He's abandoned several and failed to deliver quickly on others.

Trump has criticised the 100-day mark as an "artificial barrier", yet in a recent AP interview he bragged: "I've done more than any other president in the first 100 days." In truth, his 100-day plan remains a to-do list. One page of his 100-day manifesto is devoted to legislation he would fight to pass in 100 days. None of it has been achieved. He may not have pushed through many of his ambitious plans, but he has provided many memorable photo opportunities.

As his 100th day in office approaches, IBTimes UK rounds up the 100 best (or worst) photos of President Donald J Trump.
