  • President Vetoing a law passed by congress
  • Congress overriding a Presidents Veto

The court can declare congressional and presidential acts to be unconstitutional. Congress can override a president's veto. The president appoints supreme court judges.
In the American Government, when the President vetoes something, it gets sent back to Congress to be reviewed again and Congress can override that if they believe the President's decision is unfair.
