IMO, (A) is the answer.
To present a contrast between the state governors and the U.S president, "but" or "while" is needed which is present only in option (A).

Option B changes the meaning of the sentence. "not yet available" implies that such power would probably be available to the U.S. President in the future.

Option C is ungrammatical --

"line item veto, which the US President has no such power" does not make any sense.

Option D is a run-on sentence.

Option E is also a run-on sentence. The pronoun "that" is also problematic.
Note that we cannot use demonstrative pronouns such as "this/that/these/those" independently. They must always be accompanied with a noun. for example - that power
