Donald Trump was a candidate like no other, so it's not surprising he's been 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?

Trump's detractors say he continues to lower the bar for the office of the presidency.

The simple fact is this: With every passing day, it becomes more and more clear that Trump not only will never act "presidential" but also seems to revel in taking the very wordand conceptand dragging it through the mud.

Fox News host Neil Cavuto ripped into President Trump for his unpresidential behavior in dealing with the LaVar Ball controversy on Twitter.

“Last time I checked, you are the president of the United States. Why don’t you act like it?”

Then again, given how he acted on the campaign trail, should anyone really be surprised?

Others said his refusal to unequivocally condemn white supremacist violence in Charlottesville and insistence that there was wrongdoing "on many sides" was perhaps his most unpresidential moment.

And Trump's threat during his United Nations speech to "totally destroy" North Korea alarmed both Americans and the international community.

But others welcome his bombastic style and say it's exactly what 21st-century America needs.

Trump himself claims he is redefining the meaning of presidential.

However, 70 percent of Americans say he's not acting like a president.

And even the president's allies say his antagonistic behavior undercuts conservative policy goals and gives ammunition to his enemies.
