In Article II, Section 1, he is sworn to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Section 2 names the president as commander in chief of the armed forces, grants him the power to make treaties with the advice and consent of the Senate and to appoint ambassadors, federal judges, Cabinet officials and other federal officers. Section 3 says the president "shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed."
