If I ever become President, I would get rid of the outdated practice of Daylight Saving Time in the USA, and I will tell you why...

Purestock

Daylight Saving Time has no practical purpose anymore. Daylight Saving was created during a primarily agrarian society, which we are no longer. For those who are farmers, they have lights on their tractors now and get get along just fine in the dark. Really.

It has also been found that instead of conserving fuel and energy, it actually INCREASED fuel and energy consumption by something like 4%. That totally defeats the purpose. Not to mention, more and more states are opting out of observing the clock change.
