The President also has legislative power, by power of veto or pressing Congress to make new laws. The last role that will be discussed is the President is the Guardian of the Economy.

The President had such limited power they were normally dominated by Congress. It wasn’t till the First WorldWar that gave the President the opportunity to take a leading role. During this period, many foreign laws and regulations were passed and the size of government grew exponentially. The great depression also gave the President the opportunity to take over as overseer of the national economy (The Evolution of the Presidency, 2019).

    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.
