He'll be on historian's lists of the worst presidents in US history, alongside James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Franklin Pierce, Millard Fillmore, and Warren G. Harding.

The worst of the worst.

You forgot George W. Bush on that list
Maybe he's of the group that believes 43's reputation will heal by 2066.

George Bush deserves to be on the bad list but Warren Harding does not.

Have no idea, but if I have anything to do with it, he should be utterly forgotten as a mere footnote in history.

The destroyer of an old, corrupt, archaic America predicated on false ideals and the founder of a new America, unburdened with outdated notions of liberty and equality and justice, that boldly bestrode the 21st century like the Colossus.

I agree. Trump is a pretty horrible President overall with a flawed domestic policy and a reckless foreign policy, as I feel that Trump will launch military strikes against Iran and North Korea within the coming months in addition to stepping up US presence in the Yemen Civil War. He will probably be in the bottom 10 US Presidents when all is asaid and done. Hillary Clinton probably wouldn't have been much better though, as she would have increased US presence in the Syrian Civil War and would have ramped up tensions with Russia that could have eventually lead to a confrontation with both countries (I know Putin is an brutal autocrat and does not respect human rights, but our hands are kind of tied due to the fact that Russia is a nuclear-armed state and could easily retaliate against the US militarily). The only area in which Clinton was markedly superior to Trump IMO  was on environmental policy and education policy. Still, I opposed both Clinton and Trump and felt they were both extremely flawed candidates and instead voted for Gary Johnson (I voted straight Democratic for all other offices though).

A Harding figure who accidentally became president and resigned within two years.

He'll be viewed negatively but won't be as strongly remembered as some might think.

Accidental? He lead a populist revolt and beat a Bush and a Clinton. Hardly an accident. Gerald Ford was an "accidental one termer".

Clinton would have been much better on healthcare as well. I also think she would have done a decent job on trade. She would have been much more moderate and bipartisan than she claimed to be on the campaign trail. She only ran on "the most progressive platform in history" because that was the mood of the Democratic electorate. I think she would have done a good job on most things while being mediocre on foreign policy. Much tougher than Obama though

If Trump serves only one term, I highly doubt he will be viewed as a more significant figure than say, Gerry Ford.  If he serves two terms, he will be seen as far more influential, for good or for bad.

Probably a bit like Andrew Jackson, George Wallace, and Huey Long. A small but vocal contingent of nostalgic supporters who build him up to be a hero of the working man, while dismissing his many flaws as being "a product of his time" and "only for political reasons, not personal belief."

If Trump were competent enough to establish the cultish dictatorship he clearly desires, I have a feeling that that very well could have been how people remembered him decades hence (because that would be the only way they'd be legally allowed to describe Donald the Great).

I still think the answer is "wait and see," because posterity often cares about things that no one right now thinks are important and some of the things we think are the most important issues of the day no one will care about then. No one judges the politicians of the 1920s on trade policy, even though they'd tell you that it's the #1 issue.
