Skills to have to be President

It is important that you are well educated, has some form of of a religious background, and possibly a religious background. They should also have some leadership qualities and should be persuasive and inspiring to others. All of these qualities look good for a presidential candidate.

Constitutional Powers

4. Power to make treaties

7. Shapes and promotes the parties platforms

Personally I think the most important one is formulating the nations plans with other counties because that is a huge job and lots of conflicts or attacks cam happen within other countries.

Benefits of being President

Current Challenges

The President of the U.S. Should have a plan for the different current issues. Like immigration reform. Immigration has been a big and popular debate on the presidential campaign for 2016. To propose a plan for this you must have a realistic, knowledgable, and timely plan. We should only be allowing immigrants with a clear and full background check. We should be checking before anyone enters the U.S. that they will not have any harm to us. With the previous terrorist acts we thought we were clear of immigrants but we clearly were not. Certain acts like 9/11, the Boston bombing, and much more attacks could have been prevented if we paid more attention to who these people were and if we were aware of the issues immigrants can put on us. To help solve the issues of immigration the president can be able to delegate tasks for different people. They need to be knowledgeable and trustworthy so that we know that our leader has the best interest to keep everyone safe.
