How to deal with ISIS

As president the way I would deal with ISIS is by getting undercover agents to infiltrate the ISIS army and destroy them from the inside out. In order to keep whoever was undercover safe I would have the armed forces on call at anytime the situation got too dangerous.

Fixing the economy

In order to fix the economy I would:

- not raise the minimum wage because that will just lead to a wage increase spiral making prices inflate and the dollar worth less

-I would provide state funded jobs to fix things like roads and build new buildings, providing jobs and encouraging people to spend more money

- to encourage businesses to expand and make more jobs, I would give tax cuts to businesses that had the highest percentages of new jobs in thier company.

How to apply rolls and the constitution to fix the problem

I would ask formthenwritten opinion of my cabinet what was the best way to go about fixing the economy.

I would veto any bills that stand in the way of me trying to make the changes to encourage people to make more jobs.

I would use my decision making skills to find out what is the best way to solve Americas problems.

The public would be able to trust me because I would be very honest and always come out on top.
