Per the founders, the president is merely the CEO of the shared services organization formed by the states that operates out of the basement.
This is why the founders restricted the powers of the executive so severely - initially.
However, due to the historical and continuing cowardice of Congress, Congress delegated, and the Supreme Court incorrectly upheld (calling it a political matter) the unconstitutional delegation of Congressional constitutional powers from the legislative to executive branches.
That moved the supervisors of the basement based shared services organization into the corporate board of directors office and positions on the top floor - completely contrary to the intent of the founders.
