What does the president have to do to declare war?

According to the Constitution...The President does not have any power to declare war. That power was given exclusively to the Congress. This was meant to keep the President in check.If that power was given to or allowed to be executed by the President, he would become a Dictator in due time, once he realized the power he had. He could declare a war, attack anyone he chose with his army, and take over the country/world.The President can ask Congress for a Declaration of War, but the Congress is supposed to vote on declaring that war or not.Unfortunately these days the whole process works backwards, only because "we the people" let it happen. The President attacks a country, then asks Congress to declare the war. He gives himself controlling powers that were not delegated to him by the Constitution.Sounds like the beginning of a dictatorship to me!

The president can do two things to the bill passed congress what are they?

veto it or pass it. 2nd Answer: Good answer, but the president can also simply not veto or sign it, but let it just sit there. Here's how it works: The President has 10 days, not counting Sundays to sign or veto a bill. If (s)he does neither and Congress is in session, the bill then passes just as if (s)he signed it. If (s)he does neither, and Congress is out of session, even if the President already has the bill, then the bill fails. This is called a 'pocket veto'. (Put the bill in your pocket and forget about it.)

What are two Presidential ways you can veto the law?

He can veto a bill and he can "pocket veto" one. A pocket veto is when he does nothing and it sits on his desk for 10 days. At that point it is a veto. This is handy because the law maybe popular but he doesn't want to veto it, so he does nothing either way. In the last several years a third way has been used and that is a signing statement. The President signs the bill into law, but then signs a statement that it shouldn't be enforced. Bush did this with about 800 laws. I don't know if Obama has done any signing statements. This really got going under Clinton who did several hundred in his 8 years.

What are powers the president has to get congress to do what he wants?

This all depends on the Congress and the President. If the president's party has the majority in Congress, he generally works with the majority leaders to get his agenda through Congress. If the president's party is the minority party in Congress, he uses two tools: obstructionism from the minority leadership (the filibuster, and loading up bills with things the majority hates in an attempt to get them tabled), and the veto.

What best describes how the president works with congress?

The President has no direct way to get legislation passed, but his party listen closely to what he suggests. If they are in control, he can sometimes get an entire program through Congress. He can "lean on" particular members by giving making appointments they want, directing funds and government installations to or away from their states or districts and by campaigning for them in their state or district. He can use his veto or even the threat of a veto to block legislation he does not want. He can also try to rally the public to write their Congressmen and Senators in his favor. Members of Congress are very sensitive to public opinion and often take polls to find the opinion of their constituents.
