Chapter 7: The Presidency Unitary Executive is when a president claims prerogative to attach signing statements to bills and asserts his right to modify implementation or ignore altogether provisions of a new law that encroaches on his constitutional prerogatives as “the chief executive” or as commander in chief. Signing statement is a statement issued by the president that is intended to modify implementation or ignore altogether provisions of a new law. Imperial Presidency refers to a presidency in which the president and the executive staff try to extend executive power and influence through unilateral actions. Commander in Chief is the title that is given to the president by the Constitution and that denotes the president’s authority as the head of the national military. War Powers Act is a law that requires the president to inform Congress within forty-eight hours of committing troops abroad in a military action. Executive Agreement is an agreement between the president and one or more other countries. An executive agreement is similar to a treaty, but unlike a treaty it does not require the approval of the Senate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
