Yes, President-elect Donald Trump is about to occupy the most powerful office in the world. Before you get too excited or depressed by the possibilities that reality offers, The Hill tells us why 9 senators, including Alaska’s own Sen.

It seems to me President-elect Donald Trump comes into office in a pretty strong position. He has friendly majorities in both houses of congress and can immediately appoint one justice to the U.S. Supreme Court. According to Gallup, however, he comes into office enjoying historically low confidence from the American people in his ability to handle the duties of the presidency.
