Can President Trump now make up laws on a whim now that he has declared himself Chief Laws Enforcer of America?

Update:

Why doesn't Trump just take over the AG position and throw Barr out on his ear?

    YOU are so uneducated it would do no good to try to explain anything to you. You would never understand anyway.

    The President must sign the bill for it to become law and he can veto bills he doesn't like.

    The word you are ignoring is "enforcer." The laws are passed by Congress and the Constitution requires him to see that they are enforced. Article II Section 3 of the Constitution says that the president “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States”:

    President Trump is our Commander in Chief and our head law enforcement official. He doesn't make our laws...Congress does and he either signs them into law or vetoes the bills. Live with the fact that every President we've had has that duty and title.

      William Bar pretty much has the Chief Law Enforcement position. For Trump to take the AG position over he will need to get rid of Barr

    So you don't know the difference between making laws, and enforcing laws? Anyone who went to middle school can tell you.

      At least we know what the website of our Attorney General says.  What's your excuse, Dmitri?

    No, that would be Congress, which is the legislative branch.

    Enforcement is the function of the executive branch, which is the president of the U.S.

    Are you even an American?  You should know about separation of powers.

    He didn't "declare himself" the chief law enforcement officer, by the way. It is the Constitution that did that.
