The world has been waiting for Trump to win the presidency.
But he is not in the race.
In fact, he is in a virtual tie with Hillary Clinton, who is polling at 42 percent to Trump’s 39 percent.
So what does the new president of the United States think about the state of the world?
Here are some of the answers.
