His personal politics and approach to the power of the Presidency will explain if he will try to lead the whole government and beyond that the whole nation, or if he will act as a clerk, putting into action the orders of Congress. A Presidents character and style of leadership are an important factor in his approach to leadership. The size and duty of the Federal Government also effect a President's behavior and the priorities of his office. Finally a President must react to events at home and abroad which are out of his control. The pressures that these events and the public reaction to them probably have the greatest influence over his behavior and decisions.
The Final aspect of the NY Constitution found in the Constitution today, which clearly is a managerial task, is the power of the Presidential veto. By exercising this power, the President is clearly managing Congress, for if not in the best interest of the nation, it is the President’s responsibility to block the legislation, and give constructive feedback to Congress, with hopes of seeing a revised edition before him as soon as possible. All of the aforementioned aspects of the New York state Constitution can be found in Article II of the Constitution of the United States of America. The Constitution is the building block for the President’s role as Chief Executive. Through the vesting clause of Article II- paragraph one- executive power is placed exclusively in the President’s hands.
As head of a political party, the president sets the tone for the party’s positions on domestic and foreign issues. Many people are confused of who recommends legislation. The president has this responsibility; he is known as the legislative leader. The president recommends legislation for consideration by the congress.

Congress and The Presidency Congress as a whole makes laws. When Bills are addressed they must meet the approval of both the House and the Senate in order to become a Law, and then the President can always veto it. Congress also deals with matters of public concern be it something that needs to be investigated or something that needs to be put before the public to raise awareness. Congress is made up of two parts: The Senate and the House of Representatives. Each is granted different powers and responsibilities.
The President can sign treaties but they have to be approved in the senate first. Our President is sometimes referred to as our Diplomat-in-Chief. He occasionally visits countries that are our biggest allies. He appoints ambassadors to certain countries, he also appoints the secretary of state who is in charge of our ties to other countries. The Secretary of State is one of the cabinet members who help give advice to the president on controversial and difficult problems or issues.
I believe when it comes to foreign policymaking the president is the main driving force that has the power to accomplish in making policies that will satisfy the United States of America. In doing so though the Congress has taking many important steps in making sure that the president’s given powers are not being overused and abused. Which I feel should also lead to the congress to have a more important role in the issue of foreign policymaking. In this paper I will talk about the ways that the president presents himself as the leading foreign policymaker and how the congress use their role to keep the president’s use of power in check. As well as the decision to whether the congress should play a more important role in this issues.
The president runs the executive branch. The president has many powers including the right to veto a bill. If Congress passes a bill, the president can veto it and unless each house has a two-thirds vote to override the veto, the bill never becomes a law. Over the history of our government, presidents have vetoed over 2,500 acts of Congress and been overridden over 100 times. The president can also call Congress into a special session if they do not act upon proposed legislation by the president.
The Presidency and Democracy To evaluate the position of the president, the concept of democracy must first be considered. Most Americans simply assume that the United States is a democracy. However, before such an assumption is made it is wise to understand the common definition of the word democracy. The Random House College Dictionary defines democracy as, “Government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.” Does the United States fit this definition? Moreover, how does the role of the president affect the United States’ claim to democracy?
At first and foremost the president is the executive of the law where he must enforce the law written by congress and these laws can be very specific where the law states out exactly what is to be done or it can be broad and general that is left to the president to determined how he is going to execute the law. He can also delegate law enforcement to such agency like CIA, FIB. The president must have full control and has the full responsibility of these agencies to maintain such control he has the ability to appoint people that can managed departments and agency and these appointee must report to him. With responsibility of executing the law, the president can in some degree control what is pass into law or enact on passed law upon his interpretations. The role that the president has in legislative branch is to sign bill into law or veto bill that is passed in both the house of representative and house of senate.
The president’s power over the legislature is limited to asking for a review of bill that is asked for him to sign (Article 356). Once again, power is concentrated into the legislative branch by giving them the power to appoint the president. The prime minister is appointed by the president, and is responsible for leading the cabinet and advising the president (Article 78). The presidents of both countries are largely ceremonial because of the power concentrated within the legislature. The legislative powers of both India and Turkey are stronger than their executive branch, and both are unitary forms of government.
