The executive branch’s powers are detailed in Article 2 because the Founders believed Congress deserved top billing in Article 1.
Trump should read up on the powers listed there. Congress should, too. https://t.co/lxniCa9N77— Kevin M. Kruse (@KevinMKruse) July 12, 2019
On one hand, this is nuts. On the other hand, “the powers of a [Republican] president are effectively unlimited because, er, Article II something something” is also the position of the current Attorney General of the United States [an elite Republican lawyer while Donald Trump was just a guy who got mentioned on Page 6 and made money by refusing to pay his bills], at least four members of the Supreme Court of the United States, every member of the Republican conference in Congress, etc. John Yoo has a relatively moderate stance on executive power for a Republican in 2019.
