Down on Clinton and Trump? There's a Guy in Peru ...

Meet the national leader with the qualities I would most like to see in a president.
Corrected

Approval ratings for America’s two major-party presidential candidates are extremely low, and Donald Trump in particular has unfavorable ratings without modern precedent. To combat my growing depression, I set myself a task, namely to search the world for the national leader who has the qualities I would most like to see in a president or prime minister.

The winner is President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski of Peru, also known as PPK. He was sworn in on July 28, and so it is too early to judge his job performance. But there are reasons to be hopeful.
