President Donald Trump has remained "in character" after taking office, and the American people voted for him as he is, columnist George Will said Friday.

"The American people voted for this project," Will told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. "That is, they said, 'let's try improvisational amateurism. Let's try making the presidency an entry level job. Let's try putting in the presidency the first person in American history to have not a day's experience in public service, civilian or military.' They voted for this."

However, there are some good things that are certain to come from Trump's presidency, if it "persists as it is now," said Will, who now is an MSNBC contributor. 

"We've been treating the presidency, under both parties, as a semi-sacred [part] of the nation, as the chief of state with all the symbolic trappings associated with it," Will said.

"Maybe now we will begin to demystify the cult of the presidency and shrink it back from its grotesque, swollen nature to something that it is."

The true purpose of the presidency, said Will, is to serve as "the head of one of the three branches of one of our governments whose job is secondary to the Congress, to see that the laws are faithfully executed."
