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.
