The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 2
Section 3

He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the Union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he may receive ambassadors, and other public ministers; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States.

This Paragraph establishes the powers of the President to assure that Congress is full appraised of the Status of the Federal Government, and to assure the People that the Congress is adhering to their duties.

This Paragraph declares that the President will take care that the laws be faithfully executed. That falls in line with his Oath of Office.
