On the face of it, and considering the broad span of implied the President has, this question seems to be terribly difficult, or at least very tiring, to answer. But let's take a look at the Constitution, beginning with Article 2, Section 2. The president is commander in chief of the army and navy (in fact, of all the armed forces of the US) and of the National Guard of every state when such service is necessary. Perhaps the most famous use of the armed forces by a president in the US in peacetime occurred in 1957, when public school authorities in Little Rock, Arkansas, decided to send nine outstanding students from the area's all-black public schools to the all-white Central High School. It became obvious that the Arkansas state government lacked to power, and perhaps the will, to defy the long-standing tradition of segregation, separating people by race. In fact the threats and instances of violence became so severe that the president had to step in. President Dwight Eisenhower ordered the 101st Airborne Division to enforce the order to desegregate public schools. His concerned a US Supreme Court decision, but the president can and has relied upon the armed forces to carry out laws especially in wartime.

But this is an unusual situation. Most of the time, the president relies upon people who are employed in his executive departments (his cabinet) and the many Federal agencies which are assigned the job of making sure laws are enforced. The president relies in particular upon the Justice Department, which employs US marshals to enforce laws and arrest those suspected of violating US law, as well as US attorney to bring cases against them in Federal courts. The Federal Bureau of Investigation plays a huge role in solving crimes and sometimes preventing them by their very presence.

The President can not pass laws; only Congress can do that. He can approve bills that have already been passed, or he can ask members of Congress to introduce bills that he likes. He can call in members of Congress and ask or even pressure them to vote the way he would like. He can inform the public about laws that he would like to see passed and ask them to contact their Congressmen if they agree.

No- if the president does nothing, a bill passed by Congress becomes law unless Congress adjourns in less than ten days after the president received the bill.
