He has to ask the congress before doing most of its stuff, which end blocked, and he needed citizens approval before taking its seat in the oval office.
"How boring" is commenting the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, President of the People's Republic of China and Chairman of the Central Military Commission. "Hey if I just sent this guy in prison because its sculpture looks like a penis", did he say to his buddy Kim.

There are things the US president can do without congressional approval. Waging war is one of them. There are numerous other executive powers the president has granted to him by the constitution.

Militarily, it's the President of the USA whoever that is. Economically, probably the tech guy that reigns.

Still the president of the U.S.

I agree that economically, it's still the likes of Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, etc. Then there's the CEO of Walmart.

There are other ways of measuring power, though. Cultural influence shouldn't be underestimated. Celebrities have massive clout from their public influence. Media companies, film distributors, movie producers, etc. all are very powerful.

Dr. Dre is the most powerful/richest/influential celebrity from the U.S., and probably worldwide, these days. His net worth is over $700 million, and he makes multi-billion dollar business deals. No joke.

The president could author and/or sign into law policies that could mess up the lives of the people mentioned.

A close second to our president would be the British Prime Minister. Either one of these two has the potential to send the world into total chaos.
