From “America first” isolationism, to threatening nuclear war, Donald Trump’s world view and foreign policy positions can be difficult to decipher.

So one Reddit user has helpfully created a map of the world according to Donald Trump, where the size of each country corresponds to how many times he's mentioned it.

Iran, meanwhile, has had more mentions than the entirety of South America, Africa and Australia combined.

For those of us whose world geography isn’t quite up to speed, here’s a useful table of the President’s top ten most discussed countries.

Many thought it strange that Russia had relatively few mentions given its place in the news.

Some Redditors were even a bit miffed their own country had so few mentions - although came to the conclusion this was probably a good thing.

However, someone did leap to Trump's defence:
