Donald Trump's chaotic first 100 days summed up in 33 cartoons

Vladimir Putin, Theresa May and Kim Jong-un are all in the firing line as well

As of Saturday, it will have been 100 days since Donald Trump took oath in the office of President of the United States, and political commentators have for the past week been struggling to put into words their perspectives on a tumultuous three months.

At times, the President himself has found it hard to express his own policies and opinions. This is the man who described uranium as: "A thing called 'nuclear weapons' and other things, like lots of things are done with uranium including some bad things."

But where words fail, the Independent's political cartoonists have been on hand to sum up the scandals, gaffes and geopolitical lurches with a few strokes of their award-winning pens.

More than any other topic, Theresa May's overtures to the billionaire tycoon were repeatedly in the cross hairs, as she kowtowed to the billionaire tycoon on both sides of the Atlantic.

The President's goading of North Korea, wild Twitter rants and cosy relationship with Vladimir Putin were other popular targets for Dave Brown and Brian Adcock.

One hundred days might have dragged by, but the pair won't be setting their pens down any time soon. Bar the impeachment some Democrats are seeking or the outbreak of nuclear war, there's at least four years – or almost 1000 days – of Trump cartoon-fodder still to come.
