The Senate approved the ratification of one of the most controversial treaties in U.S. history during the Washington administration. At the insistence of the federalist senators, the President sent Supreme Justice John Jay to London to settle open disputes with Britain. Washington did not consult with the entire Senate before seeking its opinion and approval of the treaty, known as “Jay.” Opponents of the treaty, particularly Jeffersonian Republicans, supported New York Senator Aaron Burr to reopen negotiations after a series of specific proposals, but federal senators proposed the plan, ensuring approval of Jay`s controversial treaty on June 24, 1795. , but finally funds the House of Representatives on April 30, 1796, with a short lead. It was a decisive victory for the unique and decisive role of the Senate in contracting. The Senate does not ratify treaties – the Senate approves or rejects a ratification decision. If the resolution is adopted, it will be ratified when the instruments of ratification are formally exchanged between the United States and foreign powers. The Constitution says nothing about how contracts could be terminated. The breach of two contracts under the Jimmy Carter government has been controversial. In 1978, the president terminated the U.S.
defense treaty with Taiwan to facilitate the establishment of diplomatic relations with the People`s Republic of China. Also in 1978, the new Panama Canal agreements replaced three old contracts with Panama. In one case, the president acted unilaterally; in the second, it terminated the contracts in accordance with the measures of Congress. Only once did Congress terminate a treaty by a joint resolution; it was a mutual defense treaty with France, which Congress declared the United States “liberated and unloaded” in 1798. In this case, the breach of the treaty is almost akin to an act of war; Indeed, two days later, the Congress authorized hostilities against France, which were narrowly avoided since the convening of the First Congress on 4 March 1789.
