"The president is indirectly elected by the people through the Electoral College to a four-year term, and is one of only two nationally elected federal officers, the other being the Vice President of the United States. The Twenty-second Amendment, adopted in 1951, prohibits anyone from ever being elected to the presidency for a third full term. It also prohibits a person from being elected to the presidency more than once if that person previously had served as president, or acting president, for more than two years of another person's term as president. In all, 43 individuals have served 44 presidencies (counting Cleveland's two non-consecutive terms separately) spanning 56 full four-year terms.On January 20, 2009, Barack Obama became the 44th and current president. On November 6, 2012, he was re-elected. This second term ends at noon on January 20, 2017. Donald Trump, having won the 2016 presidential election, is expected to be inaugurated shortly after noon."
There was a time that the USA was very popular in my country. But this last election splits the world in two parts that hate each other. The new president will have to do a hell of a job to unite the country again. He will represent the whole western world too.
