Question: 1 / 50

Who has the power to propose and approve treaties in the United States?


The President of the United States has the power to propose and approve treaties. This is because the Constitution of the United States gives the President the authority to conduct foreign affairs including negotiating and signing treaties with other countries. This power is not granted to the other branches of the government. The Supreme Court's role is to interpret the Constitution and laws, not propose or approve treaties. While members of Congress play a role in the ratification of treaties, they do not have the power to propose or approve them. State governors also do not have this power as treaties are made on a federal level.
