The role of the president of a democratic regime is to "govern", i.e. (according to the Cornu legal vocabulary) to exercise an "activity to run the company by ensuring the creation and management of public services that are necessary for the general interest and the police to prevent the activities of private organizations contrary to that interest." He must act according to the general interest of his country and not for himself. The U.S. regime is presidential, i.e., executive power is monocephalic, in other words, it is concentrated in the hands of one man. However, the U.S. system is also characterized by the separation of powers, where the three branches are separate and totally independent of each other. One can therefore be led to wonder whether or not, despite this seemingly strict separation of powers, the functions the American President are limited.
