8. He is... but did Congress have the authority in the first place?

Congress says yes... the President says no. Yes... it is a statute passed by Congress and signed by a president. Seems simple enough.

But when the President signed it he put in one of those “you’re not the bossa me” signing statements. Saying basically that he can ignore it when he wants to.

This is an ongoing executive vs. legislative conflict that is independent of which party controls each branch at the time. In fact... when someone moves from one branch to the other they tend to change their mind.
