Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President’s “Cabinet” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

Ambassador Michael Froman, U.S. Trade Representative

Michael B. Froman was born in August 1962 in San Rafael, California. He graduated from the Branson School, and earned an undergraduate degree in Public and International Affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School of Princeton University. He received a Doctor of Philosophy in International Relations at Oxford University, and a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School, where he was a classmate of Barack Obama.

He served as Assistant to the President and deputy National Security Advisor for International Economic Affairs, a position held jointly at the National Security Council and the National Economic Council, where he served as the U.S. “Sherpa” to the G7, G8, and G20 summits of economic powers. In May 2013, President Obama nominated him as U.S. Trade Representative, and he was confirmed by the Senate the following month.

Froman is married to Nancy Goodman. They have one son and one daughter. An older son died in 2009 at age ten from a rare form of pediatric brain cancer. Froman is Jewish.


U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman said he is getting mostly positive reactions from lawmakers on Capitol Hill even as the chances for a vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) this year appear increasingly low. Froman said that lawmakers understand the “serious costs” and the strategic and political implications of not approving the TPP.

“If Congress can’t close the book on the deal by year’s end, it is very unclear when it would get done, given broader political developments,” he said. “But at the end of the day, I don’t think Congress is going to want to be responsible” for giving China the upper hand in the Pacific region. 

Supporters of the trade deal argue that, without the 12-nation TPP, Beijing will step in and fill the void left by the United States, a growing concern amid rising tensions in the South China Sea.  The push for trade supporters comes as both presumptive presidential nominees – Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump – are campaigning vigorously against the TPP. To sell the deal, the White House has deployed dozens of top officials not only to Capitol Hill but around the country. In the past several months, Froman said officials have held 270 events around the country to promote this expansive Pacific agreement.

President Obama met with his top law enforcement aides at the White House to discuss more ways to help police, following an open letter Obama penned to police forces in which he said, “We have your backs.”

The head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy, will lead the U.S. delegation to a major climate conference in Austria, seeking an agreement on reduction of emissions of ozone-depleting hydrocarbons.

Pray for President Obama and members of his Cabinet as they work to accomplish the balance of his agenda.
