The significant expansion of presidential power in this area was first manifested in President McKinley`s government. At the beginning of the war with Spain, the President announced that the United States would be bound by the last three principles of the Paris Declaration for the duration, a course that, as Professor Wright points out, “would undoubtedly go a long way to defining these three principles as an international law, mandatory for the United States in future wars.” 473 Hostilities with Spain ended in August 1898 with a ceasefire, the terms of which largely determine the subsequent peace treaty,474, as well as the ceasefire of 11 November 1918, largely determine the conditions for final peace with Germany in 1918. It was also President McKinley who, in 1900, relied solely on his sole authority as commander-in-chief, brought a 5,000-strong ground force and a naval force to work with similar contingents of other powers to save the beijing legations from boxers; A year later, without consulting Congress or the Senate, he accepted for the United States the protocol for compensation for boxers between China and intermediate powers475 In a remark on the Beijing Protocol, Willoughby quotes with his agreement the following remark: “This case is interesting because it shows how the force of circumstances has forced us to adopt European practice in reference to an international agreement that , with the exception of the issue of compensation, was almost exclusively political. Purely political treaties are usually concluded in Europe only by the executive, within the framework of constitutional practice. However, the situation in China largely justified President McKinley`s failure to submit the minutes to the Senate. Beijing`s isolation, jealousy between allies and the evolution of the Chinese government`s escape tactics would have made an agreement on the ground anything but impossible. 476 The Litvinov Agreement.- The Executive Agreement achieved its modern development as a foreign policy instrument under President Franklin D. Roosevelt and has at times threatened to replace the power of the treaty, which is not formally, but in fact, a defining element in the field of foreign policy. The first significant use of the executive agreement by the President took the form of an exchange of notes on 16 November 1933 with Maxim M. Litvinov, The USSR`s Foreign Commissioner, American recognition being extended to the Soviet Union and certain commitments were made by each official.481 491 301 U.S. 324 (1937).
In B. Altman-Co. v. United States, 224 U.S. 583 (1912), the Court recognized that the reference to a “treaty” of a court statute included an executive arrangement. 24 See z.B. the most favoured agreements in 1924 with the Dominican Republic and Guatemala, 4 Trenwith, op.
