John Lynch, President of the United States

The President of the United States is the head of state and the head of government of the United States of America. The position is detailed in the Second Article of the United States Constitution, and was first created  and elected to in 1789, when the Constitution was widely ratified. He serves as the head of the executive branch of the United States federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces. As time has gone on, those who have held the office of President have redifined it and its powers, some adhering strictly to the Constitution, and some interpretting much of the president's power for their own uses. He is also Chief Diplomat of the United States, as he dictates United States foreign policy, and holds the sole power of appointing federal executive, diplomatic, judicial, and regulatory officers, who are then mostly confirmed by the Senate. The current President of the United States is John Lynch, a Democraitc, who has been serving in this position since 2008.
