As a leader, You have to be able to control or trust in the group or team that you are given or chose as a leader you must be well spoken in your work, and in the ways you present yourself to the public with social media and on the news many people will have many different perspectives on the way that you spend the money that you have been granted with or the ways that you help your city or country.
There are many different ways that presidents and prime ministers have spent tax payers money on things that really did not need to happen for example in 2017 For Canada Day, Premier Wynne’s government spent about $120,000 to help bring a giant rubber duck to Toronto. And this was just a way for the premier to show that he cared for social and fun events in his country. The Red path Waterfront Festival says that a study conducted by Enigma Research shows the economic impact of the festival was a record $7.6 million so the smart thing to do if you are a prime minister is to not waste tax payers money.
Some leaders would join allies with different countries to gain more power so if some other country came after them with all guns firing at them they would now have a bigger mass or crew to either defeat this approaching country or try to keep peace or make peace with these country’s. For example he fired James Comey and if he wanted a change in FBI leadership, he should have announced it the day after the elections before he got into power.
