President Donald Trump has had a tough 100 days (if you can call it that).

In between his many golfing trips and visits to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, the controversial president has had many things to deal with; including the resignation of his security advisor, Michael Flynn, just weeks into his role after it came to light that he may have been meeting with Russian intelligence without the president's knowledge.

He was forced to postpone the repealing of Obamacare following opposition from congress - including outrage from many of his own party.

And his first military act, to bomb Syria, was met with intense disapproval from what many consider to be his loyal fan base.

It's been hard.

In light of that, here are a few photographs that represent his presidency thus far, and we've thrown in a few photographs of other world leaders for comparison:

1. Hand shakes

Let's take Angela Merkel as a case-in-point.

According to Press Secretary Sean Spicer, the President hadn't "heard" Merkel's request for a handshake. Right.

Not so hard.

2. Consideration of your partner:

In what has become a distinctly uncomfortable image, here Trump leaves his wife to head up the steps of the White House on her own.
