More On The Executive Branch!

Hello Fellow Americans,

After our last blog discussing the three branches of government—you guys requested in depth descriptions on each one and we’re here to provide. So, today we’ll be focusing on the Executive Branch (aka the most powerful out of all three).

If you read the last blog, you already know the executive branch of government enforces laws and appoints heads of federal agencies.  However, there is so much more regarding the infrastructure and organization of this branch that we’ll discuss right here, right now!


Let’s get started…


The President Is The Leader


That’s right the person who conducts daily operations of the Executive Branch is the U.S. president. The main responsibility the president has is to sign legislation in congress to veto or approve a law. The president also deals with diplomacy to keep peace with foreign nations and pardon crimes if given enough information.


Includes A National Security Council


The president needs a lot of assistance as he is not only the leader of this branch, but the nation as well. So, any issues having to do with national security and intelligence will be passed through the council to aid the president in more educated decisions.


The Cabinet


You all probably know the president get’s a cabinet to make his daily responsibilities easier and to run the country more smoothly. The president’s cabinet is part of the executive branch and there are 15 different heads that make up its entirety. 


Overall, this branch is primarily supervised by the president and has additional elements to make the country operate successfully on a daily basis. Let us know in the comments if you have any additional questions and maybe we’ll do a part two.


See You Later Patriot!!!
