  • OK. I checked the Constitution: The President's duties and powers are covered with five sentences:

    He swears an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. ... Not the country, not the people - the CONSTITUTION itself. (This is a very important point !! )

    Commander-in-Chief of Army, Navy, and state militias when they are called to action.
    Requires written reports from heads of his departments; grants reprieves and pardons.
    Receives ambassadors & other ministers, makes treaties (with 2/3 approval from Senate), and nominates people to be ambassadors, Supreme Court justices and other US officials, to be confirmed by the Senate.
    Gives a State of the Union report, with his recommendations.
    Fills vacancies which come up in the Senate; he can convene both Houses of Congress in an emergency.
    He "takes care that the laws are faithfully executed".

    That's it, as far as the words in the Constitution go.
