The apprentice is a game show that evaluates the business skills of the contestants. It has 14 seasons and first aired in January 2004. The contestants perform business related tasks like selling products or raising money for charity. The reason this is important is because Donald Trump was the host for a long time. The contestants were also split into 2 corporations and at the end the host would eliminate the contestant who did the least work. The prize was a $250,000 starting contract to run one of Donald Trump's companies. The text says, "Billed as "The Ultimate Job Interview", the show features sixteen to eighteen business people who compete over the course of a season, with usually one contestant eliminated per episode." That is a game show that Donald Trump hosted.
Presidents day is a holiday to celebrate and remember past presidents and used to celebrate Washington's birthday. It started in 1885 and was supposed to be for George Washington. It is usually celebrated on February 22nd because that is his birthday. It changed in 1971 and became known as Presidents Day. It was moved to Monday so workers could have a 3 day weekend. The text states, "Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, it is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government." That is some history on Presidents Day.
The Constitution limited the early presidency because of the qualifications. The qualifications are that you need to be at least 35, you had to be a resident in the United States at least 14 years, and you had to be a natural born citizen. Thd president had military power and diplomatic power. The president had appointment power and legislative power. The president had very little power but some of the presidents changed that. Andrew Jackson vetoed more bills than al the previous presidents, Abraham Lincoln ignored congress and did not ask permission from them, and Franklin Roosevelt gained power using New Deal programs. The text says, "Because the Constitution gave the President such limited power, Congress dominated the executive branch until the 1930s. With only a few exceptions, Presidents played second fiddle to Congress for many years." That is the evolution of the presidency.
