Generally every president inherits a mess of one sort or the other. The problem is that Trump has a dismal track record in dealing with problems. He is a problem creator not a problem solver.

His MO is to say that something is an easy fix, then he soon realizes that he is way over his head and starts looking for others to blame. I mean, who knew? Everyone except him it turns out.
