Countries conduct various kinds of policies to maintain the functioning of all aspects of society. Hence, depending on the needs of the country and its population, goals, and desired results, it is possible to glue domestic and foreign policy. Domestic policy is characterized by a connection with the human institutions of the state, which develop and operate within its limits. Foreign policy, on the other hand, focuses on external relations with other countries. For America, it is best to adhere to the domestic strategy, since this sector has recently been experiencing a lack of attention from the government.
Thus, foreign policy sees as its primary goal the establishment and strengthening of foreign relations of a country. The internal state of the country’s economy has a direct impact on its development and successful functioning (Aidt et al. 427). Moreover, political and social situations can also be attributed there. Examples of foreign policy include trade, sanctions, military actions against other states, and global environmental policy. For America, following this strategy becomes an opportunity to interact in its favor with other countries. Internal policy, in turn, is determined by paying attention to issues related to the activities of the population and local organizations and enterprises. The purpose of this type of strategy for regulating state functions is to minimize negative sentiments among citizens. The main areas of attention in domestic policy are often law enforcement and healthcare.
Therefore, it can be concluded that domestic policy should have more attention from the United States Government. This is because a successful foreign policy can be ensured by a stable position within the country. It is necessary to improve the quality of people’s lives, increase spending on the population and local institutions and enterprises, and invest in human and physical capital.
