The Constitution provides for the situations in which the president is disabled by establishing succession. It states who will take over if the president can no longer do his job, and who takes over if that person can't do it.

Article II, Section 1 provides guidelines on how the disability of the President is to be handled. The disability may be one caused by death, resignation, removal or inability to complete the duties of his office. In these cases, the Vice-President becomes President and if he can't serve, it is up to Congress to set up the order of succession.
