If I was President, I wouldn't make anyone do what they didn't want to do. I also would listen to what everyone thinks.

Everyone might not want to do that, so I would have a meeting and see what else we can do because it's not volunteering if you don't want to do it. I would listen to everyone's opinion because if I want to fix a situation and my solution could put the country in danger, someone might come and show me another way to do it.
