The President is an "executive" position, not a "legislative" position.
The President of the United States of America (not the State of America) is elected by the States to head the Federal government created by the States and his job is to provide a "focal point" for the many States in matters chiefly related to foreign relations and trade the States have with foreign nations.
In battles with Congress, his duty is to the States, those that voted for him and those that did not and to always stand up for the Constitution of the States if Congress acts in defiance of the Charter.
The oath taken by a President says nothing about trying to install a government of his liking or the liking of those individuals who may have voted for him in State elections for President.
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
To faithfully execute the Office of President, a President must do all in his ability to make sure the States have the government created by the Constitution.
The job is not to be the "leader" of the Party of his choosing, but to be a steadfast "follower" and "enforcer" of the Constitution, and "spokesman" for the Republic of States.
So we most definitely need a President...perhaps... not so much the current one as he seems to be lacking any ability to faithfully execute the duties of Office.
