This man has taken up the role of a President when America is at its worst hit. It will take a lot to bring it back to its original glory, and I hope the people of the US do not expect miracles from this poor man. Have faith in him and his policies and give the poor guy some time. Im sure this dynamaic and young man will work miracles. Expect some time lapse before you see change. This understanding, he will need from you guys.

He has not even seated in his office yet. Come Jan 20 then it will be his turn to lead the biggest and the most powerful country in the World. He will not only lead US but the world as well. As US influence around the world is such widespread. So let us all wait and see what his policies would be in the next coming days ahead.

The leaders of other countries should be stepping up to the plate and taking responsibility for their own countries and the problems of the world instead of relying on the United States to fix everything.

I agree. It is time the rest of the world started taking care of itself and stop depending on us to take care of us.

Well they do exspect him to accomplish all the things he promised on the campaign trail. Which if he does will be a miracle in itself. He has set himself up for an "over promise under deliver" situation. Someone should have told him not to promise anything you can not deliver on.

All politicians, all over the world do this. Promises, according to them are meant to be broken. Let us hope he will work for the peoples upliftment, just give this guy some time.

"I hope the people of the US do not expect miracles from this poor man." At the very least, the American people will expecting him to fulfill all the promises he made during his campaign. He and a number of the key members of his campaign staff, during the last few days of the campaign, said themselves that they needed to kill the heightened expectations of his supporters - that too many people would be expecting immediate results. "This poor man" is the man who made these promises and elevated the expectations of his supporters in order to be elected - he talked the talk - now he needs to walk the walk.

Yes, expectations are high, but time factor is also important. He needs to find his feet first and then walk the walk. Good luck.

That is one of the things that has concerned many - he lacks the experienced to be able to "hit the ground running".

I expect that he will do a good job to the best of his abilities for all of the American people. I know it will take some time for it to happen, but I know he will make some good changes for us.
