Character Traits

Decision Making: I think decision making is the biggest trait a president should have because they are making different decisions everyday and if they are not able to do that they are not suitable for being a president.

Facilitate: To facilitate meetings where you get the best information is another good trait a president should have.

Trust: Being a trustworthy president is something that a president must have.

Negotiate: Being able to negotiate in trades and other circumstances is a strong trait to have as a president.

Personality: Having a good personality will not only make the presidency more fun but also will make the presidents peers more excited for him to be the president.

Gun Control

As President of the Unites States I will allow guns to people under some circumstances. To be able to carry a firearm I think that the person should have their fire arm license and the also should have a background check done on them. If the person has any bit of a criminal record they should not be able to carry a gun. This will keep our nation safe and secure.
