My friend; as an American Citizen, though I live in Barcelona, my answer to this "serious" question is that the President cannot make any LAWS, as so, without the Supreme Court, Congress or Senate aprooval.

    Executive orders are NOT laws.

    Do some research please.

    under some circumstances – it is somewhat limited – not sure what they are.

    The President can only make executive orders over things he or she has executive power over. That would be things involving international treaties, as commander in chief, etc. Everything else goes through Congress, as spelled out in the Articles of the Constitution.

    The President is both commander-in-chief of the military and the head of a very large bureaucracy created and funded by Congress to administer the laws. Much of Congressional power for detailed rule-making has been delegated to that bureaucracy.

    As the person in charge of it, the President may order it to do things. Unless Congress passes a law to direct otherwise (and the President either allows that law to stand, or has a veto overridden), the President’s orders are legal and part of the constitutionally defined powers of that office.

    Article II of the Constitution begins, "The executive Power shall be vested in a President…" and that’s what that means. He’s got the power unless Congress issues a contradictory order (and gets it past his veto power), or it requires funding that Congress refuses to pony up.
