President of the United States
The President of the United States is the chief executive, commander-in-chief and head of state in the United States. As the leader of the country in which nearly all episodes of South Park are set, the President plays a role in many episodes -- and indeed, the show has lasted through four presidents (so far!) and is now in its seventh presidential term in office.
Since January 20th, 2017, the current President of the United States is Donald Trump, who is represented in the show by recurring character Herbert Garrison, even though Mr. Garrison has a completely different background than Trump.
