I have just one more question. Should Congress play a greater role in the formation of American foreign policy? Why or why not?
I think Congress shouln't, because they may not want the president to reach an agreement with another country, so that country may become upset with America. Does this sound like a good reasoning? If not, then what role does Congress have in American foreign policy?

    I agree with your answer.

    The Constitution gives the President the power to conduct American foreign policy. If Congress doesn't like what the President has done, it can withhold funds for these policies.

    The viewpoint expressed in this article is worth reading on this subject.
