Major Issues of the 2016 Election (Budget deficit)
Budget deficit is a problem in America today. There has been way too much money spent and there needs to be a change. If I were president, I would take the people's opinion on the issue. By doing this, I would find out what they think should be cut from the budget. I would also rely on my understanding to choose what is best to cut, and what is important to keep.
As President i have the power to create a law without congress consent (Executive order). This power would allow me to enforce more budget restrictions. I would make sure a good amount of citizens agree with this law before enforcing it because i would be using Level five leader skills. With the citizens trust i believe this will benefit the entire country with a few minor changes to the country's sending habits.
