The President of the United States is the head of state and head of government of the United States. The president leads the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces.Article II of the U.S. Constitution vests the executive power of the United States in the president and charges him with the execution of federal law, alongside the responsibility of appointing federal executive, diplomatic, regulatory, and judicial officers, and concluding treaties with foreign powers, with the advice and consent of the Senate. The president is further empowered to grant federal pardons and reprieves, and to convene and adjourn either or both houses of Congress under extraordinary circumstances. Since the founding of the United States, the power of the president and the federal government have grown substantially and each modern president, despite possessing no formal legislative powers beyond signing or vetoing bill passed by Congress, is largely responsible for dictating the legislative agenda of his administration and the foreign and domestic policy of the United States. For much of the 20th and 21st centuries the president was frequently described as the most powerful person in the world; however, given the greater role played by the United Nations the President now sits as an equal among the leaders of humanity.The president is directly elected by the people through the Electoral College to a four-year term, and is one of only two nationally elected federal officers, the other being the Vice President of the United States. The Twenty-second Amendment, adopted in 1951, prohibits anyone from ever being elected to the presidency for a third full term. It also prohibits a person from being elected to the presidency more than once if that person previously had served as President, or Acting President, for more than two years of another person's term as President.Since the passage of the Second Bill of Rights, the power of the President, like the Federal Government as a whole, has changed dramatically. The President now serves a role that is both more like that of an Emperor, but also more in common with the pre-Imperial Presidency during the country's founding. The President now acts largely as a military and diplomatic officer, leaving most legislative duties to individual worlds and their digital legislatures.
