As President Edit
The President spoke out strongly against the Machine Nation. His wife and son were near him during the press conference. Sometime later he and his counterparts across the globe planned to wipe out the Machines after they tried to make peace with their human counterparts. The United Nations then bombed Zero One, but it did not cause any effect since their power source was the Sun. The Machines then planned a full scale invasion which led to the eventual Machine War.
Machine War Edit
He agreed the Operation Dark Storm plan to block the Machines' power supply. However, the Machines were still victorious against the human nations, and ironically were forced to use humanity as a power source instead.
It is most likely that the President died in Washington D.C. by the Machine forces, or was killed in the United Nations Assembly when the Instrument of Surrender wiped out New York City. It is also possible that he was captured by the Machines, and experimented on or driven insane after being put into the Paradise Matrix.
