Question

What action can the president take to try to secure policy objectives after a treaty does not receive the two-thirds majority vote required by the Constitution? How would this affect the power distribution between the House of Representatives and the Senate? How is the interaction between Congress and the president affected by the existence of social media in this scenario?

Answer

A) The president can demand the resignation or removal of cabinet officers, ambassadors, and presidential staff. B) This action would allow the president to have more control over his policy objectives, but may also lead to a power struggle between the executive and legislative branches. C) Social media can have a negative impact on the relationship between the president and Congress by disseminating false information and potentially influencing voting results.

If the treaty does not receive the necessary two-thirds majority vote, the president can take executive action such as demanding the resignation or removal of cabinet officers, ambassadors, and presidential staff. This could affect the balance of power between the House of Representatives and the Senate by allowing the president to exert more influence over his agenda, but may also lead to a power struggle between the executive and legislative branches. The existence of social media can further complicate the relationship between Congress and the president by potentially influencing public opinion and voting results with false information.
