That is a good question. Though there is a great deal of danger involved with occupying the Presidency, the benefits seem to surpass the negatives.

As President, you are leader of the free world, commander in chief of the strongest military ever known to man, and representative of the world's best free market economy.

Will you get assassinated? Maybe. But, the paycheck is fat, around $500,000 including the luxury expense account. The house is pretty nice, and you will forever be embedded in history.

Can a person who live in Germany run for US president?

Not unless they become a citizen of the USA - you can't have a person who isn't a citizen of the country run the country. That just doesn't make sense. So you have to live in the USA to be the president of the USA. If you live in Germany and want to be president, try running for the president of Germany. You would probably have a way higher chance of achieving that before you became the USA president.
