Washington Examiner stubs its toe on what Congress can and can’t do

Washington Examiner puzzling headline: “Steven Mnuchin tells Congress to give Trump line item veto, which Congress can’t do”

Why, you may ask, is that puzzling? The answer is in their first sentence of the story.

“Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said that Congress needs to “pass a rule” to give President Trump line-item veto power, even though such a move would require a constitutional amendment.” (Stated during a Fox News Sunday interview)

Hint to The Washington Examiner…

only Congress can CREATE the ‘constitutional amendments’.
