Neither.....he is a con man who has managed to thoroughly convince a significant minority of the population that he knows not only what is best for the US, but is working hard to bring that about. However anyone who took the time to listen to his speeches prior to running and read his various books and other writings would have realized that he ran for one purpose only, to increase his personal wealth and that of his family since to him, wealth = intelligence and he has struggled to meet that goal in his business life.
Consider this, under Trump US influence on the international level has dropped significantly along with respect not only for the country but for the Office of the President even among long term US allies. Trump has worked hard to alienate allies of the US who came to it's assistance during 9/11 and in many of the wars the US undertook as a result of this and similar actions. Comparatively speaking the US is at it's lowest point in modern history when it comes to world influence and respect. Once good thing though, since the rest of the world have come to realize that relying on the US economically or militarily is foolish they are working hard to build new relationships between them that exclude the US.
