    What authority does the President Elect have?

    President Elect Trump has already made policy with a major corporation and talked to many heads of states. Is the "President Elect"  even an official office without being sworn in as President of  the United States. Can the President Elect make policy without congress' approval?

    something very odd and disconcerting going on. trump is acting like hes already king..er/ahh president, and obama has been silent. obama went on facebook to appeal to people not to let r's take away aca...as if hes not allowed to talk or make decisions on national stage. also, heard the dems were urging obama to push for something before he leaves, but paul ryan said theyd rather wait for new administration cause they can work together better...as if obama doesnt even exist. i know one thing: i make a solemn vow to treat trump and his supporters with the same respect and concern that they have shown to obama and his supporters. amen!

    none. The deal with Carrier was done by Pence, Trump just taking credit for it . The other 'deal' was a fake, no job loss at car factory.  It's just window dressing.

    People, I have wondered the same thing.  I think there is something going on that we don't know abouot.  If it is, it is unfair for citizenships to be held hostage to whatever is going on in the background.  Fishy, fishy!

    The "president elect" will make his own authority, by hook or crook, and he has already started to shred contracts and burn bridges between countries.
    He can make policy without the Democratic Congress approval, because they have absolute power and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    No one party should have Total Power.  Especially with the dictator that was just given such power.
