What is the role of executice in the separation of powers?

The Executive branch is in charge of enforcing the laws (while the Legislative branch writes the laws and the Judicial branch determines the legality of the laws). The President can issues executive orders that do not require the approval of Congress. The President can order troops but can not declare war without Congress' agreeance. The President can appoint Supreme Court judges (with Congress' approval) as well as many other high-ranking officials (including all working in his office - without Congress' approval). The President is also very much in charge of all foreign affairs, nearly exclusively - with Congress' agreement.
