Donald Trump was a nontraditional candidate, and now he's a remarkably unconventional president. His critics are aghast at his conduct: swearing at rallies, tweeting insults and calling unstable world leaders names seems undignified and even dangerous to many. But his supporters applaud his behavior. They say Trump's unvarnished talk, decisive action and desire to flout convention is just what we need. Even Trump described himself as "modern day presidential." What do you think?
