Donald Trump's first 100 days as US president [Infographic]

President Donald Trump is approaching the first symbolic milestone of his presidency, the first 100-day mark which falls on Saturday.

He has signed 66 executive orders, memoranda and presidential proclamations, but the courts have blocked his signature Muslim immigration ban, twice.

Republicans in Congress has baulked at supporting his health-care bill to replace the Affordable Care Act, and the FBI is investigating alleged Trump campaign ties to Russia, revelations that forced the resignation of his national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Only 22 of the 556 administration appointments requiring Senate confirmation have been filled, according to the nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service, and just four in 10 Americans (40 percent) approve of his performance -- a record-low approval rating for a new president.
