The President of the United States (POTUS) is the head of state and head of government of the United States of America. The president directs the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces. The incumbent President is Tom Kirkman.

President Kirkman is the main President in the show. The known predecessors of Kirkman are President Richmond and President Moss. President Kirkman has mentioned that he is a "registered independent", which means he is a registered voter that is not affiliated with any political party. The political parties of Cornelius Moss and Robert Richmond have not been specified yet.

Vice President Peter MacLeish became the acting President of the United States when Kirkman underwent surgery after he'd been shot by Nestor Lozano in an assassination attempt. It was later revealed that MacLeish had been working behind the assassination attempt so that he'd become president. Kirkman later survived his injuries.
