Every human being who live in the normal world has an enemy who aims to pull him or her down. Leaders are more exposed to risks due to nature of their duties. Enemies have the idea that if they harm a leader, they harm the nation in which the leader lives. The US president is not an exceptional, cases have been raised on how attacks have been carried out or even attempted in
order to kill and harm such a prominent leader. As a result, a body to keep watch of the president’s and vice president’s safety was established in 1901 after the assassination of William McKinley, who was the third sitting president of America ("Department of Homeland Security | USAGov," n.d.).
