A treaty has to go through Congress.
Doesn't count, but Blitzkrieg is not alone...
That's great! Barack Obola
Treaties do not necessarily have to be approved by a two-thirds vote of the Senate. Below is a quote from the Wikipedia article:
United States law
Main article: Treaty Clause
In the United States, the term "treaty" has a different, more restricted legal sense than exists in international law. United States law distinguishes what it calls treaties from executive agreement, congressional-executive agreements, and sole executive agreements. All four classes are equally treaties under international law; they are distinct only from the perspective of internal American law. The distinctions are primarily concerning their method of approval. Whereas treaties require advice and consent by two-thirds of the Senate, sole executive agreements may be executed by the President acting alone. Some treaties grant the President the authority to fill in the gaps with executive agreements, rather than additional treaties or protocols. And finally, congressional-executive agreements require majority approval by both the House and the Senate, either before or after the treaty is signed by the President.
Currently, international agreements are executed by executive agreement rather than treaties at a rate of 10:1. Despite the relative ease of executive agreements, the President still often chooses to pursue the formal treaty process over an executive agreement in order to gain congressional support on matters that require the Congress to pass implementing legislation or appropriate funds, and those agreements that impose long-term, complex legal obligations on the United States.
If he thinks he can get away with it, Obola (Thanks, Mongo1) will use an executive order.
... and he may find that his executive bubblegum and his supporters could be hunted for, for the rest of their miserable lives.
