For this week’s discussion board, I want to reflect on the previous pages in this module.
In this discussion board, I want to you to show an understanding of the material covered in the previous pages. Please use the terminology or ideas presented in the previous pages. Failure to do so, will result in a low discussion board grade.
This discussion board will focus on the topic of presidential power. Please respond to all of the questions mentioned below.
1.) George Washington’s farewell address was given in 1796. However, it is considered to be one of the greatest presidential speeches of all time, in part because it is still relevant and likely will always be relevant. How can we relate this speech to what is going on in today’s society, meaning, how is it still relevant? And, are there any lessons that we can learn from Washington?
2.) One of the more controversial things President Trump did was issue his executive order establishing the travel ban. Based on your understanding of the ban and presidential power, do you believe the president has the power to ban people from certain countries from entering into the US? This is NOT asking whether you agree with the travel ban, but rather whether you believe this is something that the president should have the power to do or not. Make sure to explain your responses.
