How I would fix problems if I was the President

If I was the President I would first make the economy great again, by making jobs such as making new building for companies so they can hire people to work in the building and to build the buildings. Then i would move on to dealing with the ISIS situation. I would ask for permission to just nuke all of them at a great price. If that doesn't work I would then send more troops to wipe them out! I'd call it Operation "clean slate". On the immigration problem I would have them run a large background security check, that will take a really long time so they really have to be committed in coming here. The people that are tying to get into this country would have to have a perfect record, because we don't want to risk having any terrorists. For the gun control problem I would make it that only people that have clean records and no past of violence using guns. and keep everything else the same.
