Our constitution doesn't give him the power to declare war, but that has not stopped him from doing what he pleases. Only congress can declare war.

Best Answer

Haha. Good points and that is the purpose. But I would've thought that we were just worried about how close we are so if the president was smart enough he would've reconsidered how weak the army is.

Including that we are at war with several countries. It would be a major tackle to handle all of them. And to those who are confused the president has te commander-in-chief badge. Which mean he can sign and veto any peace treaty with permission granted by the legislature.
