"I think Trump will prove himself to be a great president."
Comments like that remind me of some that were made the day after Obama was elected. He hasn't turned out to be a great President - a good one, certainly, but not a great one. There haven't been any of those since Kennedy.
Donald Trump has been given his chance by the American people, and perhaps we should all give him the same chance - let him show his detractors (one of whom has been me) that they were wrong.
He'll be faced with difficulties that he doesn't yet know anything about. His first few weeks in office will be the most daunting of his life. Let's hope he has the character and resilience to tackle what lies ahead.
