If you were the US President, what ONE issue would you address immediately?


Let's say you wake up tomorrow morning, and are the President of the United States. What is the one issue you would get to work on immediately? Healthcare? Building up the military? Government corruption? What would you fix right now? (Please give YOUR answer, rather than arguing with anyone else's. Thanks!)

    PS -- all of the bridges can be repaired or replaced with American Steel. All of those Americans (starting with returning Vets) will receive health care through their new employer. I believe this approach will address numerous issues all at once

    I live in Texas. Gerrymandering is a huge problem down here. Your issue has my vote!

    Ralph, Excellent proposal. Term limits to get rid of the congressional retirement home. SCOTUS min decision sb 6-3 or 7-2, many 5-4 dec were bad. Yes on benefits, fed employees are public Servants yet they have benefits befitting the Master. :D

    So, you would wave some magic wand, and make the debt disappear?

    And what one ISSUE would you tackle first, assuming your cabinet was in place the moment you awoke?

    Well, I think we can lump a big chunk of those under health---not just healthcare, but healthy eating and healthy life and death. That's a good issue!

    Can the President actually void laws passed by individual states? I understand that the SC could rule something unconstitutional, but I'm not so sure a President can void state laws.

    Healthcare should be treated as a right for everyone, rather than as a privilege for the rich. I've gone through cancer without insurance, and now have affordable through the ACA, and my quality of mental and physical health is so much better now.

    There are a whole lot of peeps in this country that are not Christian. Our founders created us as a country FREE to pursue any religion we choose. By insisting on C-based laws, will you also insist people turn Christian?

    The only problem with that those best qualified to run the country don't want anything to do with it.

    I don't blame them, look at the assault on Trump, his family, even his 10 year old son. The stress, the stupidity that rules in D.C. ughh, no thx.
