... this guy. But you wrote "by every reasonable reading of U.S. election law, Trump won the Presidency fair and square" and that's for sure.
We could duck this question, since "by every reasonable reading of U.S. election law, Trump won the Presidency fair and square" and so whether he is suited to the position doesn't matter since on January 20, he's going to assume the position in the Oval Office. But FWIW, here goes.
The President has the - transcendental - power of the Bully Pulpit (Teddy Roosevelt). The new President needs a complete "do-over" or "overhaul" before he can use the Bully Pulpit with authority.
But the minimal office of the President is that of the Chief Executive of the US. One thing Mr. Trump seems to like doing is to delegate. If he appoints good people to his Cabinet and administration in general (many of his nominees are good people IMO) and if delegates material authority to them and to his Vice President, as he had offered to do for John Kasich...
he will do OK, and even better if he remembers and acts on Teddy Roosevelt's advice, "Speak softly and carry a big stick," the new President will be OK. That is what I hope and pray for.
