This is an interesting question because what is a Christian president? Is it one who practices the Christian faith personally, or is it a leader who applies Christian doctrine to the way he or she governs? In the United States where this issue is a hot button topic, leaders over the last 30 years have all claimed to be Christian (both Republican and Democrat), yet on their watch, abortion has been legalized, gay marriages are now permitted, prayers in public schools are banned and in some states, drugs have been decriminalized.

If we look further back, we had truly devout Christian leaders who supported the institution of slavery and all the degradation that comes with it, (i.e. beating/raping/murdering your own "property" legally), as well as the oppression of other races even after slavery was abolished during the civil rights era. The truth is, a Christian leader can now only practice his or her religion in the privacy of his/her home. S/he can only govern according to the laws, congress and popular opinion now, because the nation has diverse religion, races and ethnicities and there are freedoms enshrined in the constitution, including separation of church and state. So ultimately, a non-Christian can also govern since Christian leaders have not made a difference. Any leader of another faith cannot possibly impose his/her religion on the nation in a meaningful way without risking being impeached by congress for not defending the separation of church and state and civil rights. 

The bible teaches us in Romans 13:1 that all leaders are chosen by God; this is a very interesting verse. In Isaiah 44:28, Cyrus was prophesied as a coming leader who had been appointed by God for a specific purpose. God referred to Cyrus as "my shepherd". Yet he was a heathen King. In Isaiah 45:1-13, we see God saying of Cyrus, "though you don't know me, I have called you by your name for the sake of my chosen people." This Cyrus, the Persian King of an ancient Iranian kingdom is the only gentile referred to as Messiah by the prophets Ezra, Isaiah and the Jewish tanakh, yet he worshipped a sacred bull. This goes to show that God still had control over him as we see him taking instructions from God in Ezra to facilitate the rebuilding of the Jewish temple. He was compelled to do as the LORD commanded because of the PRAYERS of the Jews in captivity (Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Zerubbabel and others). We also had King Xerxes who married Esther. When you read the histories of Herodotus, Xerxes was one of the most evil, depraved kings of all time, yet God used this heathen king to save the Jewish people from annihilation. He did it because of the prayers and fasting of the Jewish people.

In my personal opinion, we need to be praying for our nations and our leaders regardless of what religion they practice. Even if you voted for another leader, the bible command us to pray for the ones that are there also 1 Timothy 2:1-3. When we remember that we are all under God's authority, our prayers ensure that His will is done regardless of earthly authorities.

In my humble opinion that would depend on the Christian and their relationship to the God of the Bible, as people in general come with two basic operating systems or views. (Genesis 4:7)

Either the Bible is true and it governs one life and actions or it's not and your free to do as you please on this stage for a season. (Judges 21:25)

Simply stated my answer is NO to this question, but more importantly no to the deceptions from the minions of this world system and it's master in general.
Islam is a governmental system of servitude containing it's own abhorrent legal system to enforce capitulation and submission, which is antagonistic to God's system.
(Genesis 16:12; Psalms 84:10)

Christians consider these three Surah from the Quran the first denies Jesus, the second questions the Gospel, and the third speaks for itself.

Sura 4:157; but they did not kill him, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them

Sura 5:47; Let the People of the Gospel judge by what Allah has revealed therein. If any fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah has revealed, they are (no better than) than those who rebel.

Sura 9:29; Fight those who do not believe in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book.

Consider; In the Arabic language there is no word for compromise and the word MURUNA translates as "flexibility" sanctioning deception and lying to an infidal.
(Haggai 1:6)

Sura 4:82; Do they not consider the Qur`an (with care)? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy.

Sura 18:86; Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it SET IN A SPRING OF MURKY WATER

Sura 88:20; And at the Earth, how it is spread out FLAT?

I submit considering the current state of affairs on our little sphere, including 150 billion dollars and green lighting of atomic weapon production to a totalitarian Islamic nation.
Those fruit of thirty six years includes the killing of Americans and innocent around the world could possibly suggest that maybe; some Christians have already done so?
