The United States, Russia, and a lot of countries in Latin America are presidential democracies. Presidents are directly elected by people so therefore they have advantages over parliamentary democracy.
The system has two disadvantages when compared to parliamentary. The first one is almost impossible to remove presidents from power before their term ends. When presidents are not from the political party that controls the legislature, the results can end up in a situation which little progress is made on-pressing issues.
People have a say in who their leader is
Not all citizens have the same view on who should be elected
