The president should be responsible for representing the ideals of the American people. I think the president should be held to a higher standard of conduct than other politicians and everyday citizens because they represent those ideals and should be the model American citizen.

The actual responsibilities of the president is to appoint the heads of federal agencies (and the cabinet), veto and sign bills, make treaties with the approval of congress, and enforce the laws that congress passes. The president also serves as a figure head for the whole country, and therefore represents the US in foreign visits and talks. Because they serve as the head, they should be held to a higher standard, but it is basically impossible to meet this standard, so rarely are they actually held to this ideal standard.

The role of the president should be informing the public about important issues and be the caretaker of the country. They should be held to a higher standard because the elections attract a lot of attention, and everyone cares about the president. They are in charge of the country

The president is essentially responsible for running and managing the country to make sure things are running smooth and to be a good leader and represents the country. They should definitely be held to a higher standard of conduct because they are responsible for big things and most people or citizens don't have that much power as the president does.

The main responsibility of the president is to not only assist with running the country, but act as a "personality" of the country and a foreman to represent the country's values and motivations.
