Resolution of Issue: ISIS

I would strive to increase the amount of bombings on ISIS oil refineries and work to cooperate with other countries affected by ISIS in order to increase security against terrorist attacks. If I was not able to pass it in Congress I would be willing to make an executive order in order to accomplish this very important task.

5 Most Important Traits for a President

  • The ability to create collaborative tiger teams- As president you should realize that your opinion isn't always the way to go, by constructing teams of experienced experts in their fields you can make much more informative decisions.
  • Be able to communicate a clear and inspiring vision to his administration and the country- A president who lacks proper backing and support is someone who can't get anything done. One of the biggest traits a president needs is charisma, he must inspire people to follow his beliefs and ideals.
  • Communicate the message of motivation that gives confidence to a fatigued nation- Sometimes the United States could be going through a rough spot, like FDR did during the Great Depression he rallied and motivated a nation to get out of a huge rut.
  • Trust between the government and the people- Without trust between anyone nothing can be accomplished, trust in government is something that is vital to the progression of the United States as a whole. Presidents like Nixon has failed to master this part of the presidency and paid dearly.
  • Cross party lines and negotiate the terms of his presidency and the direction of the country- Rather or not the president is Republican or Democrat he must be willing to work with the opposite party. Otherwise the United States government becomes divided and is unable to operate efficiently.
