Obama's Foreign Trips (PHOTOS, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

Since President Obama's inauguration in January, he has traveled to more countries then any other U.S. president. On the one-year anniversary of Obama's election, the HuffPost looks at Obama's international travels, which took him to 16 different countries since taking office -- with 29 days spent abroad so far.

Former presidents George W. Bush and Gerald Ford both traveled to 15 countries in their first year in office. Richard Nixon traveled to 14. Franklin Roosevelt only made it to one in his first year, and Harry Truman only made it to four countries in his entire time in office.

Is Obama's travel abroad worthwhile? Does it dramatically improve U.S. relations with the international community, or should Obama focus more on America's domestic problems?
