While this may seem completely absurd, many believe that this is not very far away from actual truth. Due to the uneven use of checks and balances among the three branches of government, it has resulted in the executive branch of the American government gaining too much power, therefore leaving the original intent of the constitution to be changed and unenforced. Presidential power has increased immensely over recent years and. The President has too much power in my opinion. Even though the Congress has enough power to make the President look bad, I still believe they have too much power. Since the President is a part of the Executive Branch, he creates laws and can also veto them. In some circumstances the President has to go through Congress for their decision, like declaring war and having the power to deal with foreign affairs.
The Concept of Presidential Power
The presidency is called the most powerful office of the world. The United States is the most powerful country in the world and the President is the leader of the most powerful country. The president has the power to command the armed forces, make treaties, approve or veto acts of Congress, send and receive diplomatic representatives, grant pardons and reprieves, and to make sure that the laws are fully executed.
