  1. The president as people seem to know is major role for the country’s success. Many have to realize that as a president he has a lot of responsibilities and that he does not have all the power. He works with two other branches of government, Legislature and Judiciary that also takes part of the undergoing of the government. The president is in charge of the Army,Navy and also the Militia of some states. He needs to be alert of any threat or any current activities that can harm us. Because of this, he has the right to be informed by each of the Executive Department’s head in charge. He makes decisions on remarks, forgive judgements made to the United States. He does not work alone, with help of the Senate he can appoint important government positions such as, Judges for the Supreme Court, Ministers, Council and many others.
