New World Saga

During a flight, the President was first wary of Earth's new guests: Sonic the Hedgehog, his friends and in particular, Dr. Eggman. The President was intent on capturing all of the guests but his advisor assured that the situation was under control with agents appointed to those tasks.[2] Eventually, he viewed Dr. Eggman as a growing threat to the nation and during a meeting with his supervisors, he requested that the military should take action and launch an attack at Dr. Eggman. However, his Chairman pointed out that the task would not be simple due to the doctor's advanced technical level of his robots. The President's advisor then asked the President if he should consider asking Sonic seeing that he is their best hope of defeating Dr. Eggman and the President accepted. Later during the day, he met Rouge the Bat and offered her full amnesty from her thefts if she worked for him.[3]

In preparation for the attack, the President held a meeting with his military advisors and discussed tactics in order to bring down Dr. Eggman's base while sending Jerome to the Thorndyke Mansion to ask for Sonic's assistance although the latter failed, meaning that they were on their own to stop Dr. Eggman. He then broadcasted the military's attack to the public.[4]
