Dear Mr. President,
Just a reminder, in case you forgot, that Congress is a co-equal branch of the US government. That means that it can override presidential vetoes, can impeach officers of either the executive or judicial branches, can control governmental spending, and a thousand other things that I have neither the time nor inclination to explain to you.
But the thing to remember is this: the executive branch of our government - the office of the President - is not above the law or the Congress. You are not a supreme overlord. You are not a monarch. You are not an emperor, potentate, or sovereign. What powers you have have been granted to your office (not actually to you) by the judicial and legislative branches of our government.

P.S. You've been divorced enough times to have at least a basic understanding of how co-parenting works, right? Well the government works on the same principle. Think of Nancy Pelosi as any of your ex-wives and just make it work.
