As President Donald Trump's 100th day grows nearer, comparisons to former presidents -- especially his predecessor Barack Obama -- continue to mount.
During Obama's first 100 days in office, the 44th president visited nine foreign nations and signed 19 executive orders.

Shortly after taking office in 2009, Obama signed a bill to provide federally funded health care to an estimated 4 million children, authorized a U.S. Navy SEAL operation to rescue an American cargo ship captain held captive by Somali pirates and announced plans to withdraw most U.S. troops from Iraq by August 2010.
Check out some of Obama's key achievements during his first 100 days in office:
