I doubt whether he can ever sus­tain a pres­i­den­tial per­sona.

Amongst his var­ied in­ter­nal chal­lenges, he is now ag­gres­sive against those who protest against in­jus­tices by not stand­ing for the Amer­i­can an­them, and dis­re­spect­ing the Amer­i­can flag. His Vice Pres­i­dent just protested against foot­ball pro­tes­tors by walk­ing out of a game when they kneeled in­stead of stand­ing for the an­them.

Anti-Trump crit­ics say that the pro­tes­tors’ ac­tions are pro­tected by their Con­sti­tu­tion as the Supreme Court ruled – in June 1990 – that even burn­ing the Amer­i­can flag was an ex­am­ple of con­sti­tu­tion­ally pro­tected free-speech.
