But Mr Trump's supporters spent him, embracing a leader whom they said they eventually took over the cosmopolitan elites and guarding the country against the aliens. The councilors of the president said that his enemies take the language of the electoral campaign too literally; as scandalous as it may seem, is more entertainment, meant to generate a crowd reaction.
"The challenge for Republicans in an interim election when you control everything is that many of your voters are happy," said Marc Short, former White House lawmaker under Trump. "Trump has the challenge of bringing people who probably do not love Republicans in Congress to do it. There is evidence that he is making progress in this direction."
Asked by reporters on Monday, if the election was so much reversed on its leadership style as anything else, the president said, "I do not think, but, I mean, I'm willing to accept that."
He did not make any effort to distance himself from the harshness of his campaign, including a commercial he produced, which was considered racist and was eventually rejected by several networks, including his favorite Fox News, too air offensive. "Many things are offensive," said Mr Trump. "Your questions are often offensive."
In an interview later published, however, Mr Trump regretted the duration of his two years of work. "I would like to have a much softer tone," he told Sinclair Broadcasting, giving him the bargain style, the desire to do things.
He suggested that it could change by the middle. "I would like to understand, and I think many things can happen after the elections," he said. "But now they are in their own way and we are in our way. And you know, if you're criticized, you have to go back, or you should.
