Talking about the top elected official of our Executive Branch, the President is the CEO of the country.
The President is the ultimate servant leader, elected to set policy, make decisions for the betterment of the people, and the Commander in Chief empowered to protect the citizenry and our land.
The President’s duty is to the Constitution, and to the people. To serve and to protect the people. ALL THE PEOPLE
Here’s the text, the following Presidential Oath or Affirmation:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
And usually closed out with…”so help me God.”
With these words an ordinary person is given tremendous power for a time, entrusted by the people to fulfill the oath.
And then often, and maybe quickly, and maybe frequently, things get muddy, and things get murky.
But the work of the President, it’s Sacred Duty. Sacred Duty.
