President of the United States of America


The President of the United States (often abbreviated "POTUS" or "PotUS") is head of the US government executive branch. The powers of the executive branch, as with the other two branches (legislative and judicial) are limited by the US constitution; these limitations are often referred to as the separation of powers.

President #43 George W. Bush made many strides towards increasing the power of the president. President #45 (Donald Trump) appeared to have similar ideas about the need for more (or possibly absolute) presidential power, and in fact attempted to illegally remain in office after losing the 2020 election.
