Most powerful person on earth?

You might hear people say that the president is the most powerful person on Earth.

That's because the USA is the only global super power, as it has the most powerful military and the biggest economy, and the President is in charge of it.

Any global agreement on trade or the environment isn't as powerful as it could be unless it has US backing, and the president decides what gets that backing.
