The only power the President has of these is A. negotiating treaties
 
A treaty may not be entered into or signed without the Advice and Consent of the Senate
Foreign policy is a good example of where the power of the president has increased over the past two centuries from what the Constitution originally granted him. Before the 20th century, presidents did not even leave the country while in office. President Wilson, by negotiating the treaty of Versailles at the end of World War I and handing a done deal to the Senate, was breaking precedent. For a number of reasons, the Senate refused to pass the treaty.
