  1. I believe American’s expectations about presidency have exceeded because people want the best president. It is good for a president to promise something, but I feel they should be mindful of their promises so they can fulfill it or somewhat fulfill it. The website shows that Donald Trump has 600+ promises and around 400 of those or mostly lies to “pants on fire” lies. Comparing Barack Obama’s promises to Donald Trump’s promises, Barack Obama has made around 500+ promises and 400+ of those promises were true to half-true. I believe Barack Obama did set the expectations for future presidents higher as his promises fulfilled to lies ratio is more positive than Donald Trump’s ratio, and this is also considering that Obama’s ratio is positive after office while Trump’s ratio is negative and he still has months of presidency to go.
