I'm getting sick of hearing Trump supporters talking about how "powerful" Article 2 makes the President. Clearly none of them have read it; Article 2 does not provide for, and even explicitly contradicts, MANY of Trump's presumptive acts of office.

And, yes, the same is true for the last few Presidents, although the current administration has taken the breach of Constitutional law to a whole new level.

@codemouse92 people don't realize that the President has powers NOT granted by the constitution BECAUSE of Congress.

It's a little late for them to regret it. Presidents have taken advantage of wartime to snag powers they otherwise would not get in peacetime.
