U.S President is often considered as the most powerful person on Earth. U.S President has many powers, but President cannot misuse his powers. The system called checks and Balances keeps everything in order for the U.S government to run. If Congress thinks that the president is misusing his power, the congress can impeach the president, but in order to do that congress requires 2/3 of majority votes. There are three branches in the U.S government, Legislative, Executive, and the judicial branches. The president is the head of the Executive branch, which is responsible for enforcing laws passed by the congress.
None of the three branches can make laws or do something without the approval of the other two, this system is called the system of checks and Balances. Congress can pass the law but president can veto the law if he thinks it is unconstitutional, congress can override the president’s veto by getting two-thirds of majority. But even with the approval of the president and congress, still the Supreme Court can come in and say that the law is unconstitutional. The president is considered powerful because he is the head of the whole Executive branch alone.
There are also president’s cabinet members and the vice-president but cabinet members can only suggest the president and Vice-President can only act if the president is sick or dead. So, logically the whole Executive branch is headed by the President. President also has some specific powers such as, he is the commander in chief of the U.S Armed forces. President can also send troops to a country for 90 days with congressional approval. He also has the power to make treaties with other countries, but the U.S Congress has to approve the treaty. The president has other very important powers too, such as, he can appoint judges for the Supreme Court.
President can receive foreign ambassadors. The president along with the executive branch also has to make sure that the laws are faithfully
