Can US States make treaties with foreign countries?
No, the states may not make treaties with foreign countries. Under Article II, Section 2the president is given the power to make treaties with the advice and consent of the Senate. Since the Constitution expressly gives treaty powers to the president and since the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, the states are pre-empted from treating with foreign countries. Foreign policy (including the enforcement of borders from a state in the union to a foreign country) is only and solely a federal issue. The above poster has it right, if a state wishes for new foreign policy, it must seek it through federal means, at which point it is out of the state's hands.

What is the role of a US president in foreign affairs?
The US President is the one person who has the most influence and power in dealing with foreign countries. He is the head of state in the US and as such represents the US government to foreign leaders and sets the tone in how the US treats a foreign government. Through the Secretary of state , whom he appoints, within limits, he can give out or withhold monetary aid and military aid. The president is the commander-in-chief to enforce a protest about the behavior of a foreign government. Just moving battleships into an area sends a message. He can order trade embargoes or restrict travel to and from a foreign country. With the advice and consent of the US senate he can negotiate treaties and accords.

Asked in US Constitution, Treaties
Does the president have the power to negotiate treaties with or without permssion or consent of congress?
Through the Department of State and the Department of Defense, the President is responsible for the protection of Americans abroad and of foreign nationals in the United States. The President decides whether to recognize new nations and new governments, and negotiate treaties with other nations, which become binding on the United States when approved by two-thirds of the Senate. The president may also negotiate "executive agreements" with foreign powers that are not subject to Senate confirmation. I believe the president can negotiate treaties, but they do not take effect until the Senate votes to ratify them.
