1)The president (executive branch) can veto a law passed by Congress(legislative branch) which can be overridden by a two-thirds vote in Congress. 2) The Supreme Court (Judicial branch)can declare a law passed by Congress (legislative branch) as unconstitutional if the case is brought before the court.

The supreme court is allowed to call actions by the President or Congress to be unconstitutional and therefor unlawful.

The president is allowed to veto bills passed by congress so that they are unable to be called law.

Senate has the power to impeach the president of the US.
