The authority was extended in successive laws.450 Then, in the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act of 1934,451 Congress authorized the President to enter into agreements with other nations on tariff reductions and other barriers to international trade and to bring the reductions into force through proclamation.452 Since the war in Europe begins its decisive phase, public attention in the United States is turning more and more to the difficulties that may arise if peace agreements are reached. concluded with the Senate with a request for approval of their ratification. The possibility that many international adaptations could be made after this war by executive agreements and not by formal treaties, which must be approved with two-thirds of the majorities in the House of Lords, has hardly been respected. A previous case of executive treaties was the agreement by which President Monroe set the limits of armament on the Great Lakes in 1817. The agreement was reached through an exchange of notes that, almost a year later, was submitted to the Senate to determine whether he was in the president`s office or whether a council and Senate approval were required.

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.
