QUESTION: Is anyone can participate in president elections or are there any rules like she experience?

Hello again,

While anyone may run for president, the US Constitution specifies the qualifications needed for someone to serve as president: The person must be a "natural born citizen," at least 35 years old, and a resident of the US for 14 years. Aside from those three qualifications, anyone may become president of the US.
