Post Election Dilemma

Watching different news channel as a resident in this great country the United States of America, I often wondered what does the rest of the world think of America. When you see protest almost everyday, name calling as i heard just today from an elected official, do the rest of the world will see America as leader or just a country that is in chaos and disarray. Sometimes I catch myself wondering if my kids will have a great future when the current generation is such in turmoil and I often hear  disconnect between the senate, congress, white house,  court and its people.

United States presidential election has passed and the people voted and chose the 45th president the republican party  Donald J. Trump.

President Donald J. Trump accomplishments in his first month in office as listed in the website:
