Just to clear things up more, in the US we call the President "The Leader of the Free World." Or at least they say that on TV all the time. We don't actually think that's the case, but it's a respectful way to refer to him to show his power and prestige.

I see. Thank you for clearing this up. It's a bold claim considering the rest of the free countries (Europe waves "hello"), but at least we foreigners get to see where it's coming from.
