When Trump takes the White House in January, he will be inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States.
That, and he will likely be confronted by the worst domestic crisis in American history.
There is a long history of presidents facing foreign crises on their way to the White Houses, and many have not made it out unscathed.
But the Trump administration’s handling of the standoff with North Korea could be the most dangerous of all.

The plane was flying over North Korea from Guam.
It crashed and burst into flames.
After the crash, North Korea claimed it had fired a missile.
In the weeks that followed, it conducted dozens of tests and launches of ballistic missiles, the most recent of which landed in the Sea of Japan.
The crisis escalated as Kim Jong Il, who succeeded Kim in his second term in 2010, ordered the launch of an intermediate-range missile.
The missile was tracked to an unknown location in the sea.
The North Koreans retaliated with a ballistic missile that fell into the Sea, and the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution demanding the reopening of its embassy in Pyongyang.
It also imposed a travel ban on Kim Jong un, including for his family and close associates.
Trump threatened to attack North Korea and Kim Jongun responded by saying he would not negotiate with the country.
He also threatened to withdraw US troops from South Korea.
At the White Hill in Washington, a senior Trump administration official described the crisis as “the worst domestic security crisis since World War II” and said the administration was prepared to deal with it as soon as possible.
“If we see it as a crisis, we’re going to have the capability to deal effectively with it,” the official said.
Trump’s response, however, is not a certainty.
The president will have to meet with his North Korean counterpart in person in the coming days.
The US has warned the North Korean leader that the threat of force “will have very serious consequences” and will only serve to increase tensions.
“The only way to resolve this is by diplomatic means, and that’s not going to happen,” the administration official said, adding that the administration is “committed to a diplomatic solution.”
Trump has not responded directly to the North Korea threat, but his comments are expected to be addressed by Kim at the White Board, a meeting of senior officials and their families.
The White House and State Department declined to comment on Trump’s response to the crisis.
The Trump administration has also been criticized for a series of policy decisions that have caused the crisis in the first place.
On January 15, the administration announced a new policy to lift sanctions on North Korea.
This was in response to North Korea launching a missile on January 15 that was later intercepted by US Navy vessels in the Yellow Sea.
Trump also announced that he would be easing sanctions on the country’s nuclear weapons program.
On February 12, the State Department said that it would begin lifting sanctions on Iran, which was in the midst of a nuclear deal with the P5+1, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council.
The decision, which came after Trump spoke to Iranian leaders about the deal, came after Iran had launched a ballistic ballistic missile toward the US Navy destroyer USS Donald Cook in international waters in international maritime airspace.
On March 8, the Trump Administration said it would lift sanctions against Russia, which it had imposed in retaliation for Moscow’s annexation of Crimea and support for separatists in eastern Ukraine.
On the same day, the Pentagon announced that it was ending its support for the rebels in eastern Syria.
The administration has been criticized in recent weeks for its handling of North Korean issues, including the administration’s decision to launch a missile into the sea off the Korean Peninsula, a move that came after North Korean agents threatened to shoot the United Sates ships, and for its lack of action on North Korean human rights abuses in the country and the persecution of political opponents.
North Korea is an isolated, repressive state and is in the process of constructing a nuclear weapon.
The North is also in the throes of its most aggressive military modernization in decades, and Trump’s new policy is expected to further accelerate the pace of its development.
