Trump Remains President on 2018-01-01

Question

Donald J. Trump is the President-Elect of the U.S., making it extremely likely that he will assume the Presidential office in January 2017.

In addition to the usual mortal risks that might prevent a president from serving the second year of his term, the likelihood of either resignation or impeachment seem somewhat higher in Trump's case than for some previous Presidents-Elect. By some accounts he spent part of his campaign not believing that he would get the job, and may find it not to his liking. He also has legal cases pending, and due to his public-sector inexperience may be comparatively unaware of the the borderline between traditional exercise of presidential power and impeachable offenses.

Will Donald Trump be the President of the United States on January 1, 2018?

This question will resolve true if Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States on January 1, 2018.
