Office of The President

The President is the Head of the executive branch and plays a large role in making
America's laws.

His job is to approve the laws that Congress creates.

When the Senate and the House approve a bill, they send it to the President.

If he agree with the law, he signs it and the law goes into effect.

If the president does not like the a bill, he can refuse to sign it.

When he does this, is called a veto.

If the president vetos a bill, It will most likely never become a law.

Congress can override a veto, but to do so two-thirds of the Members of Congress must vote against the President.

Despite all of his power, the President can't write bills. he can propose a bill, but a Member of Congress must submit it for him.

In addition to playing a key role in the lawmaking process, the President has several duties. He serves as the America Head of State, meaning that he meets with the leader of other countries and can make treaties with them.

However, the Senate must approve any treaty before it becomes official.

The President is also the Cheif of the Govt. The means that he is technically the boss of every govt. worker.

Also, the President is the official head of the U.S military. He can authorize the use of troops overseas without declaring war. To officially declare war, though, he must get the approval of the Congress.
