Author(s): Osamah Ibrahim Raheem

Abstract: The policy of Thomas Jefferson that he drew firstly towards the foreign expansionist policy in the United States of America by sending several campaigns to fight the Mediterranean countries (Tripoli, Tunisia, Marrakesh) and then was able to eliminate military operations and piracy against American ships in the Mediterranean, Thomas Jefferson was able to eliminate the British monopolies through the monopoly network of trade in the Mediterranean, as well as to make several agreements to secure the lives and trade of the inhabitants of the United States of America. He stressed the need to adhere to the Constitution by respecting all previous agreements and treaties, but at one point he ignored the Constitution after studying it well in order to benefit from it in the Louisiana Purchase and says I squeezed the Constitution until it broke. Jefferson managed to maintain his balance by not entering the European war during the expansionist policy of Napoleon Bonaparte by adhering to neutrality permanently and completely, always remembering that his country consists of European nationalities, although European countries worked to use each category to their nationality, but he showed America with one nationality, which is the nationality of the citizens of the United States of America. Thomas Jefferson worked to fill the ports of his country with ships and maritime trades in American waters and compel Napoleon to respect American commerce. Jefferson has been trying to force Britain to respect the American citizen, and that he is not an Englishman who has escaped from military service, but is an American citizen working to serve his country, and to offend him is to offend American national security.
