America’s president, Mr. Donald Trump, is somewhere between Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. He certainly is not the polished, buttoned-down, diplomatic statesman president we have been used to over the past several decades, nor was he elected as such.

Historically, national leaders should be allowed to mold in to their positions. A new-style president should be afforded the time and space to maneuver, while getting his feet wet.

Once the break-in period is finished, Mr. Trump should expect a good measure of praise for accomplishments and head kicks for mistakes.
