4. I believe the President is an officer of the United States

Part of Section 3 of the 14th, about who it applies to:

"...having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States..."

I'm not a Con Law expert but I'm 99.9% certain the office of President of the United States is considered an officer of the United States.
