Donald Trump and his family are reaching the end of his first overseas trip as US President. After visits to Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Trump met Pope Francis in Rome and held talks with the heads of European Union institutions and Nato in Brussels, before the G7 summit in Taormina, Sicily.

The president appears likely to go his entire nine-day trip without holding a full news conference, a break from presidential foreign travel precedent. That's allowed him to steer clear of the steady stream of new revelations about his dealings with ousted FBI Director James Comey and the federal investigations into his election campaign's possible ties to Russia.

The White House has been jubilant over the trip's results so far, and content to let the images of Trump meeting with world leaders tell the story instead of the president's own unpredictable words. We look back at the 20 best photos of US President Donald Trump's first big tour on the world stage.
