No, this is exactly wrong. The US government, particularly at the Presidental level, isn't a business and it isn't run like a business. For instance, Congress doesn't report to the President and they don't take orders from him. In fact, they don't have to do anything.
And more.
Somehow, many people expect the President to do the "big fix", forgetting that the Congress is also part of the government.
