Well Obama created a worst scandal then Watergate by SPYING on Trumps Campaign and Transistion Team. So that will be Obama's Legacy.
Trumps Legacy seems pretty good right about now

“james Buchanan l” was Lincoln’s predecessor and is specifically remembered for refusing to act as the south rebelled.
By the time lincoln took office the south had already rebelled.
So he is remembered for “what he didn’t do”, but I can’t think of anyone else who is remembered for inaction. Rather than some action that went right or wrong.
The reason he is remembered for inaction is because of the monumental events of the civil war and abolition.
Inaction doesn’t make the history books without a disaster that you should have acted on..

I'm not putting Obama on Mt. Rushmore, but looking at a president prior to Obama that started a war that was neither necessary, won, or finished, committed war crimes during it, lost New Orleans, then tanked the economy, Obama was a resounding success.
